Keto Bacon Chicken Alfredo

Keto Chicken Alfredo Spaghetti Squash is super simple to make and definitely a replacement for pasta lovers!

  • 1 medium spaghetti squash
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • basil (optional)
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • 3 lbs of cooked chicken tenders (cut into bite sized pieces)
  • 6 strips cooked bacon (crumbled)
  • 2 tbsp butter*
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder*
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream*
  • 1/2 tsp salt*
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper*
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese*
  • 1/3 cup mozzarella cheese*

*for the sauce

  • Add chicken and 2 tbsp of olive oil and 2 tbsp of butter to a non-stick pan, cook until browned as desired. Set pan aside leaving the "little crispies" to use with alfredo sauce.
  • Use a microwave safe plate and dome lid to microwave 6 strips of bacon. Allow to cool, crumble and set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 375 F. Line a baking dish with foil. Cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise, scoop out the seeds, season the inside with 2 tbsp olive oil and 2 tbsp of butter each, salt and pepper to taste, and I like to add basil. Place the boats cut side down and roast for 45-50 minutes. Let it cool for 5 minutes and use a fork to separate the noodles.
  • In the mean time prepare the Alfredo sauce. Melt 2 tbsp butter into the pan you used to cook the chicken in on medium heat. Add garlic, salt, pepper, and stir. Add the heavy cream. Bring to a boil, cook for 1 minute and reduce the heat to low. Add the Parmesan. Cook until the sauce thickens.
  • Scoop out desired amount of spaghetti squash. Preferably limit to one cup, top with chicken, cover with sauce, top with bacon & mozzarella cheese allowing the cheese to melt. You can microwave in 30 second increments if needed to melt the cheese.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
Spaghetti squash is rather high in carbs. This is best used when practicing OMAD (one meal a day eating). So worth it! It will be the only meal you need for the day.
