Pesto Chicken over Spaghetti Squash [Upgraded]

Well, the day has finally come when I’ve learned how to make my recipes printable!

This is a true construction zone and I would love your feedback and/or thoughts as I work on these upgrades.

The recipe below is an upgraded version of an experiment we posted last week with the addition of a white wine pan cream sauce. It added the saucy flavor we were hoping for and we will keep working on the exact measurements over time. For now, its a true experiment and work in progress.

To celebrate my newfound ability to print recipes I’m linking up to Fiesta Friday! This week is hosted by Diann @ Of Goats and Greens and Antonia @!

Pesto Chicken Over Spaghetti Squash

  • Servings: 4-5
  • Print


  • 4 chicken thighs
  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • 1/2 cup pesto (I make and freeze batches each year using various combinations)
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • Salt and Pepper
  • White Wine as needed
  • A few splashes of cream


  1. Prepare the spaghetti squash by cutting it in half, removing seeds, and placing it face down in a shallow pie plate of water. Cook for 15 minutes until soft. Use a fork to remove squash
  2. Cut the chicken thighs into strips and season with salt and pepper
  3. Saute the chicken thighs in a teaspoon of olive oil.  Start on a higher temp and then reduce to low.
  4. Remove cooked thighs to a bowl and then use white wine to deglaze the pan. Then, reduce the heat to low. Add butter and cream until you reach the desired thickness.  Set aside.
  5. Add a 1-2 tablespoons of pesto to the warm chicken in the bowl until well coated.
  6. Add the reserved spaghetti squash to a mixing bowl and add most of the pesto and sauce. Mix well. Then, add the chicken and remaining pesto.
  7. Place into a baking dish, top with the cheese, and bake uncovered for 15 minutes.
