  • 2 small spaghetti squashes (about 1760 grams)
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped onion (half a large/150 grams)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound chicken breast (cubed)
  • 4 packed cups chopped kale (120 grams)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons Caesar dressing


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut spaghetti squash in half, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and place flesh side down on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Roast for 35 minutes until skin gives when you press into it.
  • When there are about 10 minutes left on the squash, make the chicken mixture. Add oil to a large sauté pan and let it get hot, about 30 seconds. Add onion and sauté until softened, about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add chicken and garlic. Season liberally with salt and pepper and cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add kale, mix to combine, and cook for 1-2 minutes until cooked down and chicken is cooked through. Season with salt and pepper and lemon juice.
  • Remove chicken mixture from the pan and place in a medium bowl. Mix with 1/4 cup Caesar dressing. Remove spaghetti squash from oven and thread with a fork. Evenly divide mixture between the 4 boats, mixing up the mixture with the spaghetti. Top each spaghetti squash boat with 1/2 tablespoon (or more) Caesar dressing and pop back in the oven for 5 minutes. Enjoy!
