Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo

I love my one-pot Paleo comfort meals!  To make the spaghettis squash is so easy.  Just poke about 10-15 holes by using a metal skewer then roast.  I also use my Le Creuset Braising pan for so many great meals and it goes from the stove to the table!  How amazing is that??

 

Ingredients

  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, unsalted butter or ghee
  • 2 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
  • 2 cups broccoli, florets
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup heavy coconut cream, canned
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter or ghee
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. 

  2. Take the spaghetti squash and using a metal skewer poke about 10 wholes in it.  

  3. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchments (just for easy clean up but not necessary) and place squash then cook for 45 minutes.

  4. Let cool, slice in half then remove seeds with a spoon then fork out the threads to create your spaghetti and set aside.

  5. Slice the chicken into slices or cube.

  6. Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat.

  7. Add in oil, butter or ghee.  Once hot and melted add in chicken.  Season with 1/2 teaspoon sea salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.  Cook for about 7 minutes tossing to brown all sides.  Add in broccoli florets and garlic.  Sauté for another 5 minutes.

  8. Add in coconut cream, butter, basil, parsley, thyme, red pepper flakes, 1/4 teaspoon sea salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.  Toss around.

  9. Add in spaghetti squash to the pan and heat through. Enjoy!

    This dish is a keeper and needs to be added into my rotation. There are 6 of us so I increased the amount of chicken and broccoli and added 1 1/2 Tbs of nutritional yeast for a cheesy-ish flavoring. All the kids said it was the first time they liked the spaghetti squash. Score!
