Spaghetti Squash Chicken Chow Mein

Posted on September 24, 2019 at 4:30 PM

This delicious recipe is from a recent Flavored Fork Cooking Demonstration that took place at our store!


  • 2 tablespoons Toasted Sesame Oil
  • 1 large skinless, boneless chicken breast
  • 1 large spaghetti squash
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut sugar (or Stevia)
  • 2 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper (or black pepper)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 stalks celery, sliced diagonally
  • 2 cups coleslaw mix (shredded cabbage and carrots) *Note: 2 cups = 1 bag

Cut spaghetti squash in half, length-wise and scoop out seeds. Lay skin side up in a 13x9" Pyrex and pour 1/2" of water in the bottom of the pan.

Bake at 400° for 30-40 minutes, until flesh is very tender.

Once done, scoop out flesh with a fork so that it breaks apart into strings; set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together coconut aminos, garlic, sugar, ginger and pepper; set aside.

Heat Sesame Oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Place chicken breat in pan and cook through, about 8 minutes. Remove chicken from skillet and let rest 5 minutes and then shred.

Wipe skillet clean and heat Sesame Oil over the medium heat. Add onion and celery and cook, stirring often, until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in cabbage until heated through, about 1 minute.

Stir in spaghetti squash and sauce mixture until well combined, about 2 minutes.

Serve immediately.

Notes: We eliminated a great deal of sodium by using coconut aminos rather than soy sauce. We also cut down sugar by replacing the recommended 1 tablespoon of sugar with only 1/2 tablespoon.
