This Keto Spaghetti Squash Chicken Alfredo Skillet is the BEST!
Love spaghetti squash and want to use it in a keto recipe?
You have to try roasting a spaghetti squash, then throwing it in a skillet with a quick, homemade keto alfredo sauce. I also added cooked bacon, chicken, and broccoli for an over the top keto meal experience! In fact, this may be my personal favorite low carb meal idea I’ve EVER made. It’s super creamy, rich, and satisfying – a must-try keto dinner idea for sure.
Hip Recipe Tips:
- I like roasting spaghetti squash in the oven. If you want to try using your Instant Pot to cook a squash instead, cut it in half, remove the seeds, and cook it on high for 7 minutes with a cup of water inside the pot. This could be a little bit of a time saver if you’re in a hurry.
- I used a couple of small grilled chicken breasts, but if you have a leftover rotisserie chicken, that’d be perfect as well.
- This dish makes yummy leftovers, too. If the sauce thickens too much, try adding a tablespoon or so of chicken broth when reheating.
