This meal made be rethink spaghetti squash altogether. I thought I didn’t like spaghetti squash, but in reality I just didn’t like how it was prepared. I had only had it as a pasta substitute and it just isn’t pasta. Spaghetti squash, broccoli and chicken dinner isn’t pretending to be pasta and you will be thankful for that.

The spaghetti squash gives this meal a nice crunch to this meal. Any vegetable could be roasted along with this, but broccoli is my favorite to add in. I have prepared this with both chicken breasts and thighs and it turns out great every time.

Cut the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the extra strings and seeds. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Lay cut side down on the sheet pan and roast for 15 minutes while you prepare the broccoli and chicken.

  1. Thanks for the recipe. We made this tonight and I thought the spaghetti squash turned out good. I think I would steam the broccoli for the rest of the family (although I liked the nutty flavor it had this way). We added a bit of Parmesan cheese on top at the table. I will make this again.

  2. I am making this for dinner tonight! I am really excited to try this recipe with my fiance and 2 year old!!

  3. Great taste try adding a little tomato sauce, put back in squash add a little mozzarella cheese put back in 400 degree oven until melted. Very good!
