Instant Pot - The Healthiest Low Carb Chicken Alfredo Spaghetti Squash Recipe

Healthy Chicken Alfredo?  Is that even a thing?  

Hubby and I had the craving for alfredo (without the added fat, carbs, and calories), so I decided to do some experimenting.  And, as I mentioned in my previous post, I LOVE spaghetti squash as a low carb pasta alternative - so after finding a recipe where I was able to make it in only 6min instead of my usual baking for 45min... I may be on a spaghetti squash kick! :p  

{Click here if you missed my 6min Spaghetti Squash recipe}

Easy Prep Chicken 
1/2 medium spaghetti squash
1TBS garlic, minced
1/2 cup greek yogurt (full fat)
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
2/3 cup shaved parmesan cheese
2 tsp garlic powder
3 tsp himalayan salt
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 squeezed lemon
Olive oil spray
Fresh parsley


  • *Prepare Easy Prep Chicken or grab leftover chicken (we used chicken hubby grilled)
  • *Cut spaghetti squash in half, scoop out seeds
  • *Place spaghetti squash in Instant Pot with 1 cup of water. {If you don't have an Instant Pot, you can bake the spaghetti squash...it just takes more time!}
  • *Close lid, turn venting handle to sealed position.
  • *Push the manual button, push the down arrow to 6min.
  • *The Instant Pot will begin to reach high pressure.  Steam will vent for a few min, and the pressure pin will push up, and the 6min countdown will begin.
  • *Bring a pan to medium heat on the stove.  Spray with olive oil spray.  Add 2 tsp garlic.  Stir for a couple of minutes to brown.  Add 1/2 cup almond milk and 1/2 cup greek yogurt, whisk.  Remove from heat and add 1/4 cup parmesan cheese.  Stir until melted.
  • *Carefully vent steam by turning the venting handle of the Instant Pot, and remove the spaghetti squash.  
  • *Take fork and scrape the "noodles" from the spaghetti squash into the pan with "alfredo sauce".  Add lemon juice.  Stir until mixed and let thicken.
  • *Add Easy Prep Chicken.  Add additional salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste.
  • *Serve topped with the rest of the parmesan cheese and parsley.

Hope you love it!  Comment below and lmk what you guys think! :)
