Enjoy the classic flavors of Buffalo chicken wings in a healthier way. Spooned into spaghetti squash boats and topped with blue cheese, this lighter version is just as tasty as the real deal but it will actually make you crave your veggies. Source: EatingWell.com, September 2018

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Place squash, cut-side down, on the prepared baking sheet; bake until tender, 35 to 45 minutes. Turn the squash halves over. When cool enough to handle, use a fork to scrape out the strands of flesh. Set the squash and the squash shells aside. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F.

  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add carrot, celery, onion and garlic and cook, stirring often, until softened, 8 to 10 minutes.

  • Reduce heat to low. Stir in chicken, Neufchâtel, hot sauce, milk and celery seeds and cook, stirring, until the cheese is completely melted and the ingredients are combined, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the reserved squash and toss to combine.

  • Divide the chicken mixture between the squash halves. Place on a baking sheet and bake, uncovered, until heated through, about 20 minutes. To serve, cut each squash half in half crosswise. Sprinkle each serving with 1 tablespoon blue cheese and 1 tablespoon scallions.

I love spaghetti squash and am always looking for new recipes. This one is a keeper! The only thing I changed was cooking the spaghetti squash whole in the slow cooker then I cut and scoop seeds. I'm trying to eat more veggies and this is a great way to do it. Delicious! Read More
