Chicken Bacon Low Carb Spaghetti Squash Boats

Satisfy your pasta craving without giving into a carb-laden meal with these Chicken Bacon Low Carb Spaghetti Squash Boats. They're loaded with chicken, bacon, cheese and sour cream, so you know it's good!

Ingredients
  

  • 1 large spaghetti squash cut in half (or 2 medium spaghetti squash)
  • 2 C. cooked diced chicken (I typically use leftover baked chicken, rotisserie chicken also works well)
  • 1/2 C. cooked bacon pieces
  • 1 C. shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 C. sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Cut the spaghetti squash in half length-wise. Use a spoon to scoop the seeds out of each spaghetti squash half.
  • Add 1" of water to a microwave safe dish (I use an 8x8 Pyrex dish).
  • Place the spaghetti squash cut side down in the dish. Place in the microwave and heat for 12-20 minutes, depending on the size of your squash.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Let microwaved spaghetti squash cool for about 15 minutes before gently scraping the squash from the shell with a fork, being careful not to rip the shell.
  • Combine the squash, sour cream, cheese, bacon, garlic powder and salt & pepper.
  • Scoop the mixture back into the squash shells.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until everything is heated through.
  • Remove from the oven and serve with a salad.
