This Chicken Pizzaiola recipe has chicken slow cooked with marinara and wine over healthy spaghetti squash. Perfect for make-ahead lunches, this is a meal prep chicken recipe for healthy eating during your busy week.
Put the chicken pizzaiola ingredients in a slow cooker, sprinkling the seasonings over the chicken before adding the marinara and wine.
Cook on high 4 hours or low 6 hours. Shred meat.
Roast the squash
Cut the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. Scrape out the seeds.
Brush the flesh with olive oil and place cut side down on rimmed bake sheet. Prick skin all over with a fork.
Roast squash at 400°F for 40 minutes.
Once cool enough to handle, use a fork to fluff and shred the squash into spaghetti-like strands.
Assemble the meals
In each of 5 meal prep containers, layer squash, chicken, beans, parmesan, and basil.
Refrigerate until time to eat, then microwave 1-2 minutes to heat up.
Note that it you feel your chicken is a little dry (this is lean chicken breast after all), add a couple additional tablespoons marinara when you assemble your meals.If using my homemade marinara sauce, omit the wine here because my recipe includes it already.
