- 1 pound chicken breast, shredded

Watch Me Make It
The first step is to get your spaghetti squash roasted. Begin by preheating your oven to 425°. Next, carefully cut your spaghetti in half, lengthwise, and scoop out the seeds. Drizzle avocado oil over the inside on the squash, and season with salt and pepper. Turn the squash upside down, pierce the skin with a fork 5-7 times, and then bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes.
While the squash is baking, this is when I steam my broccoli. I usually steam it in the microwave because #easy. After the squash is finished baking, allow to cool for 5-10 minutes, and then use a fork to scrape out the squash "noodles." Spray am 8x11 inch baking dish with cooking spray, then place the squash in the dish.
Lastly, combine the squash, shredded chicken, alfredo sauce, salt and broccoli in the baking dish. Stir to combine well. Top with shredded cheese, then bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes until cheese is melted and edges are bubbly.
