Introduction

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius). A spoon should be used to remove the seeds from the spaghetti squash after it has been cut in half lengthwise.

The sliced sides should be seasoned with salt and pepper, and olive oil should be drizzled over them.

Arrange the squash halves on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper, with the cut side facing down.

For thirty to forty minutes, or until the squash is tender and can be readily punctured with a fork, roast it in an oven that has been preheated first.

When it is finished, take it out of the oven and allow it to cool down gently.

While the squash is warming up in the oven, bring the remaining olive oil to a simmer in a skillet set over medium heat.

Sauté the chicken breasts that have been diced and the garlic that has been minced until the chicken is completely cooked through and has a golden brown color.

The cherry tomatoes should be added to the skillet and cooked for a further two to three minutes, or until they start to become more pliable.

Scrape the flesh of the spaghetti squash with a fork to form what you can think of as “noodles.” Move the noodles made from spaghetti squash to the skillet where the chicken and tomatoes are already cooking.

To ensure that the chicken and tomatoes are thoroughly blended, toss the spaghetti squash noodles with the ingredients. To ensure that the food is well heated, continue cooking for another two to three minutes.

Once the skillet has been removed from the heat, toss in the basil leaves that have been chopped. Depending on your preference, season with additional salt and pepper.

Tips for Success

For the finest flavor and texture, select a spaghetti squash that is ripe and has a skin that is firm and free of any imperfections.

The spaghetti squash should be pierced multiple times with a fork and then microwaved for three to five minutes before being sliced. This will make it much simpler to cut the squash.

Make sure not to overcook the spaghetti squash in the oven because it has the potential to turn mushy. Try to achieve “noodles” that are soft and somewhat al dente.
