Ingredients

  • 4 cups spaghetti squash
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion finely diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 pounds chicken breast sliced thin
  • ½ head cabbage sliced thinly
  • 1 small carrot cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup green beans cut
  • ¼ cup soy sauce or tamari, or coconut aminos
  • lemon optional

Instructions

  • Roast the spaghetti squash in the oven: Pre-heat oven to 400°F. Cut the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds with a spoon. Lay the two halves skin side up on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Cook in the oven for about 30-40 minutes or until the squash is cooked but still a bit firm. Flip each squash half and let it sit flesh side up until cool enough to handle. Using a fork, scrape the flesh lengthwise to strip it into thin strands. Measure out 4 cups of the strands in a bowl and set aside. (I actually cooked the squash the night before and refrigerated it so the "noodles" were ready to put into the pancit the next evening.)
  • Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over medium heat. Saute chicken with onion and garlic until chicken is no longer pink.
  • Stir in cabbage, carrots, green beans and soy sauce. Cook until cabbage begins to soften.
  •  Toss in spaghetti squash "noodles" and cook until heated through, stirring constantly. 
  • Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with cut lemon (we usually squeeze the lemon juice onto our pancit).
