Looking to satisfy that Buffalo Chicken craving but don’t want to blow your wad? Try this AMAZING buffalo chicken bake.
It is healthy, yet satisfies that buffalo chicken craving. The base of it is spaghetti squash and I add a ton of sauteed diced chicken to it. There aren’t many ingredients and you can find them easily at your local market.
I adapted this recipe from Peas and Crayons but I simplified it so much its unrecognizable. I don’t like to eat directly out of the spaghetti squash, nor do I like to roast it. So I turned the recipe into a “bake” and also altered the ingredients to make each bite more protein packed.
Pro Tip: I make the spaghetti squash in advance and let it strain before mixing all the ingredients together. I do this to get rid of all the excess water that the vegetable naturally holds. *Do not overcook the spaghetti squash*. Click here for how to cook.
This recipe is PACKED with protein! Per serving this recipe has 375 calories, 12g fat, 10g carbs and 57g protein!!! Let’s go!! I mean this is like a superstar, all star recipe.
SERVE WITH CELERY!
I serve this drizzled with Walden Farms Blue Cheese dressing and use celery sticks as a scooping mechanism. The celery gives you a serving of veggies and a fresh crunch! It also makes you feel like you’re eating buffalo chicken wings!
If you’re looking for a healthy alternative to buffalo chicken salad (yes the chicken is usually breaded and fried!), buffalo chicken wings, or anything buffalo, you have found your solution!
