Creamy Chicken Spaghetti

Creamy Chicken Spaghetti

Hello from the frozen north 40 🙁 I’ve been switching things up here for the last week.  My hungry is turned on full blast!!!

For your dining pleasure, I searched the web and tweaked several recipes together to make a yummy hearty healthy delicious creamy chicken spaghetti that is mostly dairy free and low carb/healthy carb. And guess what? I’ve made it family size for you! So if you don’t need 8 servings, cut it down and then use it for lunch as well! This easily serves your 8 favorite peeps.😎

1# cooked shredded chicken (I used two big breasts in the crockpot for 4 hrs)

6-8 cloves garlic, the more the merrier!

2 1/2 – 3 cups mushrooms (optional)

4 cups chopped green kale…so many varieties but for this just use the regular curly known as green kale (I used a kale/chard spinach mix the next time! Yummy!)

8TBL grated Parmesan cheese
8 TBL fresh ground whole wheat flour (I have also used 6-8 TBL of a Kodiak cake mix in place of flour, worked well)
8 TBL real grass fed butter like Kerrygold (or you can mix it – olive oil AND butter but you need the butter)
2 – 3 Cups cashew MILK (click the link to make your own)
One large size roasted spaghetti squash, or heck use eggplant noodles or zucchini noodles
Fresh basil, like a handful chiffonade style
1 tsp each thyme, oregano, Rosemary

So, melt your butter in a large skillet. I love my extra large cast iron for this. Toss in the minced garlic and chopped kale and cook while constantly stirring for just a few minutes.creamychickenspaghetti3

Add in your flour and stir well for a minute.creamychickenspaghetti2

Now add the cashew milk and dry seasonings. Stirring continuously this will thicken over a low flame after a few minutes.creamychickenspaghetti4

When it is thickened, toss in your parm, your basil and chicken stirring well to incorporate, then finally add in your veggie noodles. I personally add a hint more cashew milk at the beginning because I like a lot more sauciness. Season with salt and pepper if you need it.creamychickenspaghetti5
