1 large or 2 small spaghetti squash
4 whole double-lobe chicken breasts
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

Preparation / Directions:

1. Puncture the squash serveral times with a fork to prevent it from exploding during cooking. Bake on a sheet pan at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 30 minutes. Pull squash from the oven and test it for doneness by gently squeezing it. If it feels tender to the touch, then it is done. Set it aside to cool a bit. 2. Prepare the chicken breasts on an outdoor grill, frying pan, or broiler by cooking until done. Slice the chicken breasts into 1/2 inch thick slices, cover and set aside. 3. Cut the squash in half from the stem end to the other end. Remove the seeds carefully with a spoon. Using a fork, gently flake the squash out moving the fork from the stem end to the opposite end. The squash will come out in strands that resemble spaghetti. 4. Evenly distribute the squash on 4 dinner plates. Place one tablespoon of unsalted butter on top of each portion. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Top each portion with one chicken breast and garnish with grated parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
