HHFC Recipe: Cajun Chicken & Red Hot Pepper Sauced Spaghetti Squash

Cajun Chicken over Red Hot Pepper Sauce and Spaghetti Squash
Are you stuck in a healthy food choice rut? Not sure what you can make that the entire family will love? Well, don't you worry! I have some delish recipes that everyone will love! Before I give you the goodies, I want to take a few to discuss why it's SO very important to eat organically as much as possible.
Unfortunately, food labeling in the US & Canada has gotten pretty creative. They design packaging to confuse the consumer & have you thinking you are making healthier choices. In reality, you are getting processed, chemical filled and genetically modified crap instead of wholesome foods.
Organic foods have been produced without synthetic pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and cannot be genetically modified or irradiated. Organic meats and eggs are humanely raised without the use of hormones or antibiotics.
Words like "Natural" (not the same as organic-Stringent standards do not exist for natural food products.) "Made with real fruit," (can actually contain only 1 real raspberry to say real fruit) and so on and so forth. The use of synthetic chemicals and hormones can create many health problems within your body and that of your family. Invest more now to avoid trouble down the line.
Now for the fun stuff!
Cajun Chicken with Red Hot Pepper Sauce over Spaghetti Squash
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 2 hr Difficulty: Moderate to easy
Serving size: 4
You will need:
4 (16oz) Organic Chicken breast
3 Organic Red Bell Peppers
1 package of Organic haricoverts or green beans Or 2 cups cooked
2 Tbsp Organic Olive Oil
2 Tsp Sea Salt
1 Tbsp Organic Garlic powder
1 Tbsp organic Paprika
1 Tbsp Organic Onion powder
1/2 Tbsp Organic Cayenne
1/2 Tbsp Organic Thyme
2 tsp of hot sauce (depends how you like it)
Sprig of Organic Curly Parsley
*1 Organic Spaghetti Squash
*if short on time, I use Zoodles (zucchini noodles)
Pre-heat oven to 400 deg F.
Pierce small holes over the squash, place on a baking dish and bake for 1 hour, rotating every 20min. (when finished, remove, cut in half length wise and discard the seeds, use a fork to separate the squash into a spaghetti-like texture)
Cut Chicken breast into strips and place in crock pot, add 1 tbsp olive oil & all seasonings less 1 tsp of sea salt not the parsley)-cook 2 hours ((you may sautee the chicken in a pan with olive oil spray if you need a faster recipe, I like being able to start it & not worry about it for a couple of hours.
Cube the red peppers & place in steamer for 15-20 min
Boil Green beans until they reach desired tenderness-drain, cover, set aside
Add steamed peppers, 1tsp salt, olive oil, parsley & hot sauce to blender & blend until smooth saucy consistency.
Time to plate it!
Start with Spaghetti Squash, add haricovert, chicken then top with sauce, gently mix, top with additional parsley if desired and serve!
