This low carb Creamy Cajun Chicken Spaghetti Squash has under 400 calories per serving and tastes every bit as indulgent as the restaurant version.
Cajun chicken pasta - it seriously has me drooling any time I see it on a menu. But with over 1500 calories at most restaurants, it's something that I have to reserve for rare indulgences and that's with only eating half.
Luckily it's easy to make a lower calorie and lower carb version at home using spaghetti squash, lots of veggies, lean chicken breast, and reduced fat cream cheese. Depending on how spicy you like things, you can add extra Cajun spice to pack in more flavor or add a couple of tablespoons of chipotles in adobo sauce. You can also use zucchini noodles, summer squash noodles, or any other veggie noodle since not everyone is a huge fan of spaghetti squash.
