Chicken fettuccine Alfredo has always been one of my favorite comfort foods. Growing up, I would’ve had it every day if I could! Fortunately, there’s an easy low carb version that I make these days. This healthy chicken Alfredo recipe with spaghetti squash totally satisfies that comfort food craving.
How To Make Chicken Alfredo Healthy (from Scratch!)
Making a healthier fettuccine Alfredo is really easy. I actually did it by combining three of my favorite low carb recipes!
By swapping spaghetti squash for the noodles and preparing a homemade sauce, you can cut carbs and keep the recipe light. If you ask me, the best chicken Alfredo is one that leaves you satisfied without the carbs and heavy feeling. Don’t you think so? Yes, you can have the best of both worlds.
Even though I said this is a combination of three recipes, don’t be intimidated. They are super easy, and you can make them in parallel!
Start by roasting your spaghetti squash in the oven. (Be sure to check out that link, because I’ll show you how to do it faster than most methods!) You can work on the other parts while that’s cooking.
I used my favorite baked chicken breast recipe to get super juicy chicken in this healthy Alfredo. My tips in there will show you how to make sure it’s not dry! And, the Italian seasonings pair perfectly with Alfredo sauce.
Speaking of the sauce, it’s my favorite part. The homemade low carb Alfredo sauce really makes this dish. It’s super rich and creamy, without any weird fillers, preservatives, or starches. In fact, you only need four common ingredients to make the sauce! Once you try it, I think you’ll see why it’s my staple for any recipes calling for Alfredo sauce.
Low Carb Spaghetti Squash Alfredo for an Easy Dinner
I was so happy the first time I tried making low carb Alfredo with spaghetti squash. I previously made a zucchini Alfredo recipe that I also enjoyed, but I think spaghetti squash Alfredo might be even better. Spaghetti squash noodles are the same thickness as angel hair pasta, which was always my favorite when I used to eat carbs.
This is one of my favorite easy low carb recipes to make for dinner, because I don’t have to make a separate main course and side dish. This one is both! It’s a delicious way for my family to enjoy veggies, too.
If meal prepping is your thing, spaghetti squash Alfredo will fit right in. You can prepare almost all of it in advance! It’s convenient to pre-cook your spaghetti squash and store the noodles in the fridge. You can do the same with the sauce. As for the chicken, it’s definitely better fresh (like any chicken recipe), but you can still bake it ahead of time if you really want to.
With all the pieces ready ahead of time, spaghetti squash Alfredo makes an easy weeknight meal. Just toss everything together and reheat in the oven at about 350 degrees, until hot.
Did you ever think you’d find such an easy, healthy chicken Alfredo recipe? Now you have one!
