You are going to LOVE this Whole30 Greek Chicken Spaghetti Squash Bake. I’m willing to make a bet on it – that’s how delicious it is! I have made this so many times I can’t even count – and it gets better EVERY time I make it! About a year ago, I was on a total spaghetti squash kick. I was having it with/for dinner a couple times a week, and basically devouring all of the spaghetti squash recipes I could find.
One of the recipes I found was this Whole 30 Tuscan Chicken Spaghetti Squash from my friend Chrissa at Physical Kitchness. The idea of baking spaghetti squash in a casserole like form basically blew my mind, and I proceeded to add this to my dinner menu with different variations basically ever week for about a month.
I’ve made turkey taco spaghetti squash bake, meatball spaghetti squash bake, buffalo chicken spaghetti squash bake.. the list goes onnnn and on. They’ve all bee delicious – but this Whole 30 Greek Chicken Spaghetti Squash Bake takes the cake. The combo of artichokes, olives and sun dried tomatoes is just.. well.. delicious!
What I love about this recipe is that it’s SO darn easy. I’ve made it so many times at this point I could do it with my eyes closed, but even if you’re not me – I know this will be super simple for all of you!
This Whole 30 Greek Chicken Spaghetti Squash Bake recipe is something you can get on the table in just about 30 minutes if you time it right or plan ahead.. so let me explain. Ya gotta multi-task! It’s important that you get the spaghetti squash in the microwave or Instant pot to cook first. That takes the longest. Wondering how do you cook a spaghetti squash in the microwave or instant pot?
How to Cook a Spaghetti Squash in the Microwave or Instant Pot
The other key to this recipe is the chicken. You have a few options for shredded chicken. You can make my Easy Instant Pot Shredded Chicken, you can cook the chicken in the crockpot (you’d have to do it the day before or in the morning) OR you can say whatevs and just buy a rotisserie chicken and shred it up.. any method will work.
While your chicken/spaghetti squash are cooking – you can prep the other minimal ingredients, so that you can get it in the oven in no time!
My other tip for you is to prep this ahead of time (maybe on a Sunday) put it in the fridge + then just take it out and bake it when you’re ready for dinner!
Now that you know all the tricks… think you’re ready to rock it? I think you are. Between getting dinner on the table super quickly + making something oh, so delish – you’re about to 100% win the dinner time hustle and feel like a superhero!
