Chicken Spaghetti (Squash)


  • Yield: 6 servings 1x

Description

Use spaghetti squash if eating a Keto diet.

If you prefer to use canned mushroom soup, you can replace the mushrooms and evaporated milk with 1 can of mushroom soup.

Nutritional information includes spaghetti squash rather than noodles

We like the combination of thyme and marjoram, but you can substitute any herb of choice. We find sage and thyme go well together, as do marjoram and rosemary.
