Cajun Chicken Spaghetti Squash

This was delicious, lovely and spicy and the usual watery nature of the spaghetti squash was gone, so all in all a success.

Cajun Chicken Spaghetti Squash (from Destination Delicious)
(Serves 6)

2 medium spaghetti squashes
2 tbsp oil
salt and pepper
450g chicken breast, chopped into small cubes
1 tbsp + 1 tsp Cajun seasoning
½ onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 peppers
3 tomatoes, diced
60g cream cheese
bunch parsley, chopped  

Preheat the oven to 200C. Prick the spaghetti squashes with a fork and put into the oven. Bake for 40mins - 1 hr until soft. set the squash aside until cool enough to handle. Sprinkle 1 tbsp cajun spice to the chicken and combine.
Heat 1 tbsp oil in  frying pan over a medium high heat, add the chicken and sauté for about 5 mins. Add the onion, garlic and peppers to the pan with 1 tsp cajun seasoning and sauté until softened.

Then, add in the tomatoes and cream cheese. Stir until combined. Take the mixture off the heat. When the squash is cool enough to handle, use a fork to scrape the spaghetti strands out of each half. Add the spaghetti squash and the chicken to the sauté pan and toss to combine. Serve.
