Step 1

Cook spaghetti squash until tender. Check out this video to see 3 easy methods to cook your spaghetti squash.

Step 2

While your spaghetti squash is cooking, season chicken breasts with 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.

Step 3

On a large skillet, heat up 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add chicken breasts and cook, flipping once, until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Add lemon juice, let it bubble, turn off the heat, remove chicken from skillet onto a cutting board, slice diagonally, and set aside.

Step 4

In a microwave-safe glass or small saucepan, heat up half and half.

Step 5

To the same large skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter, add garlic, and cook, stirring constantly for about one minute, until the garlic is fragrant and heated through. Slowly, add in half and half, 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes. Stir in the Parmesan cheese and stir until the mixture has slightly thickened. Cook, stirring constantly until everything is incorporated into a sauce.

Step 6

Add the chicken back into the skillet or large pan, turn heat to simmer (lowest heat setting) and heat the chicken through.

Step 7

With a fork, scrape the squash meat off each half into a large bowl or directly onto 4 plates. Top with chicken and lemon-garlic sauce, sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve.
