Chicken Spaghetti Squash Casserole- Paleo Style

nutrition Feb 02, 2014

Several months ago, I posted a recipe for gluten-free chicken spaghetti. I recently tweaked it a little bit to make a delicious paleo version. Honestly, I think I like it better! I’ve written about spaghetti squash before, and it really is a perfect pasta substitute. It has a great flavor, and a little crunch, which I love. This dish is super easy to make, and it’s loaded with veggies, lean protein, and gut-healing bone broth. Whether or not you follow a paleo diet, this meal is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
