Spaghetti Squash & Chicken Pad Thai

The Garden Committee has discussed this recipe at a few of our meetings now and it is is my duty and honor to share this recipe! (This is equally good without the chicken for those that do not eat meat.)

Spaghetti Squash & Chicken Pad Thai

1 large spaghetti squash

1 cup bok choy (diced)

1 cup carrots (thinly sliced)
2 cooked chicken breast, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup chicken broth
2 tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
1 red chili pepper

2 tbsp dry roasted peanuts, chopped
green onions (chopped)
lime wedges

Cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. If you are having difficulty cutting it, try microwaving for a minute or two, whole. Scrape away the seeds. Place on foil covered cookie sheet and season with salt and pepper. Roast on 350 degrees for 40-60 minutes. Remove, let sit 5 minutes and then “shred” the squash with a fork.
In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, sauté garlic for 1 minute. Add the bok choy and carrots and sauté over medium-high heat for 3 minutes. Remove to a plate. Add chicken broth, peanut butter, soy sauce, rice vinegar and red chili pepper to skillet. Heat until smooth. Return veggies to the pan, as well as the spaghetti squash. Add in chicken, and heat over medium heat for 5 minutes or until sauce has coated all.
Divide among 2 plates/bowls and top with peanuts, cilantro, green onion, and lime wedge.
