TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 medium spaghetti squash (2 pounds)
  • 1 boneless skinless chicken breast half (6 ounces), cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup marinated artichoke hearts, drained
  • 1/3 cup chopped pitted Greek olives
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese

Directions

  • 1. Cut squash in half lengthwise; discard seeds. Place squash cut side down on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 15-18 minutes or until tender.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a skillet, saute the chicken, onion, red pepper, garlic, oregano, basil, salt and pepper in oil until chicken is no longer pink. Stir in the spinach, artichokes and olives; cook until spinach is wilted.
  • 3. When squash is cool enough to handle, use a fork to separate strands. Serve chicken mixture over 2 cups of squash; sprinkle with feta cheese. (Save remaining squash for another use.) Yield: 2 servings.
