A delicious and classic twist on the classic buffalo chicken dip. Tastes just like the classic - Buffalo Chicken Spaghetti Squash.
That that we have all of the major holidays over we can start to focus on football food! When any games come on, he always want buffalo this, buffalo that. Let's just say we are HUGE buffalo chicken dip lovers here. 🙂
Just look at all of the yummy, deliciousness on that fork. Come to mama.
Now that January has started, have you started thinking about any goals that you want to set for this year? I typically set way too many goals that I never have the time to accomplish. This year I have started to set realistic goals for myself and with Gal on a Mission.
I am a tad bit late, but when I finish them I will definitely share them with you all! 🙂
Let's get back to this cheesy, buffalo goodness, okay?
I love how easy this is to make. The longest part of the entire recipe is baking the spaghetti squash; however, you aren't really doing anything and just waiting. My favorite kind of recipes, your's too?
If you don't already have the chicken cooked and shredded as stated in the recipe below, you can cook it on low on the stove top with a lid. I did not season it because once you add of all of the ingredients it has so much flavor already. If you insist on seasoning it, just add a pinch of salt and pepper. Simple is always better.
- 2 small-to-medium spaghetti squash
- 1 8oz package of cream cheese
- ½ cup Frank's Hot Sauce
- ½ cup ranch dressing
- 1 large chicken breast or 2 medium chicken breast cooked and shredded
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Using a fork, place small holes into the spaghetti squash so it can breath while baking.
Place the spaghetti squash into a large casserole dish and bake for 50 minutes.
Allow the spaghetti squash to cool for 5-10 minutes.
While you are letting the spaghetti squash cool, prepare the buffalo chicken by place the cream cheese and the hot sauce in a large saucepan. Allow the cream cheese to completely melt.
Add in the ranch dressing and chicken breasts.
Cut the spaghetti squash length-wise in half and scoop out the insides. Place the buffalo chicken on top of the spaghetti squash and sprinkle with the cheddar cheese.
Bake for another 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese has completely melted.

I love any recipe that involves speghetti squash! Thnks for linking it up at Monday Funday!
Chelsea, Your Buffalo Chicken Spaghetti Squash looks delicious! I'm confused on one part. It says to scoop out the insides of the spaghetti squash and then put the chicken mixture on top of the spaghetti squash. Do you save the insides to use in something else or does it go into the mixture as well?
Donna - Scooping out the insides of the spaghetti squash means to take out the seeds. After you remove the seeds, you will then use a fork to loosen up some of the spaghetti squash.
Please let me know how you like it, Donna! Have a wonderful weekend 🙂
Thanks! That makes sense. Hope to try soon for some South Beach diet friends as an appetizer--maybe Superbowl.
Ohmigosh, I'm so mad I just saw this now! I bought some spaghetti squash last week so that I could make this southwestern style squash dish with black beans, corn, peppers, cheese, salsa and it's yummy. But right after, I turned to pinterest and found this recipe! It looks AMAZING. Normally it bothers me when people post about a recipe without actually trying it out personally - but I am positive I will absolutely LOVE this when I make it. And hopefully it will be soon. So, thank you for posting this! 🙂
Lauren - Hope you enjoy it! We love it 🙂
Jean Lynd says
Buffalo chicken sp sq is going on the next menu...thx!
Hope you family enjoys it, we do!
I wanted to check on something.....Do you really only use one large chicken breast? It seems to be a lot of sauce so I am trying to make sense of it....Sounds so yummy!
Hi Lisa! Only one large chicken breast is needed! 🙂 Enjoy!
Shelly Buhr says
