Buffalo Chicken Spaghetti Squash

 Here is a simple dish if you enjoy eating Frank's hot sauce on EVERYTHING!

My hubby is a huge fan of Frank's so he really enjoyed this dish. I thought it was just okay so I may make it again just because he liked it. The best part for me was the mozzarella cheese, but then again... I LOVE cheese! If you don't want to add the cheese, just use 6 oz of cooked chicken so you can get your full Lean for the day. I used ranch dressing so that I could add a healthy fat for the chicken, but another idea that I may try next time is using two light laughing cow cheese wedges as a healthy fat. I would just stir it into the spaghetti squash mixture to give it a creamy texture. Leave out the ranch dressing if you decide to do this. Definitely worth a try! Hmmmm.... I think I am going to try it with the laughing cow cheese next week! I'll keep you posted!


The ingredients! The spaghetti squash and chicken are already prepared. I just grilled the chicken and chopped it up into pieces. If you would like a tutorial on how to cook spaghetti squash, you can check out this post Spaghetti Squash with Chicken and Pesto.


In a skillet, add the spaghetti squash, cabbage and spices.


Add the chicken and Frank's hot sauce.


Mix it all up until it is combined.


Put the mixture on a plate. Top it with yummy mozzarella cheese! Then drizzle with ranch dressing.
