Stir Fry Vegetables, Teriyaki Chicken, Spaghetti Squash "Noodles"

It’s Tuesday and Chef Jose is back with another edition of Chef Jose’s Corner. Today, Chef Jose shares a recipe for Stir Fry Teriyaki Chicken and Vegetables served with Spaghetti Squash "Noodles"



2 Spaghetti Squash

3 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 TBSP Garlic Salt

2 tsp Black Pepper


1.     Preheat oven to 350 (F)

2.     Cut both ends of spaghetti squash and split down the middle. Remove the seeds.

3.     Line a cookie sheet with foil, place Spaghetti Squash skin side down on the foil.

4.     Dust with garlic salt, black pepper and drizzle with olive oil.

5.     Turn the spaghetti squash skin side up and place in the preheated oven for 30- 45 min. Once it is cooked, the skin will cave if you apply pressure.

6.     Let the Spaghetti Squash cool for 5-10 min until you can touch it without getting burned. Using a fork, scrape the inside of the squash to yield stringy “noodles”.

*Note: Once the “noodles” are made, they can be vacuumed sealed and frozen for up to 6 months. They can be used in a variety of pasta/noodle dishes.
