Buffalo Chicken & Goat Cheese Spaghetti

Buffalo Chicken & Goat Cheese Spaghetti

Experimentation Day here!   

Typically this happens when one of two things is going on:  either I have an overly full fridge OR I happen to have a couple things I love and want to put them together in a dish to try something new; today both were true.  Buffalo Chicken & Goat Cheese.  I crazy love both, and I am a huge fan of mixing something creamy with something spicy, so I just went for it!  Spaghetti (Squash) tossed in Goat Cheese sauce and topped with Buffalo Chicken.  BAM!  I just ate this for lunch and seriously, it was AWESOME!  Already texted the hubby a pic to make him just a little bit jealous :)

This was a fast put together for me because I cooked the Spaghetti Squash last night and it was ready to go!  Meanwhile I had some cooked Chicken, leftover from the night before,  as well as a large Pyrex full of shredded Carrots just waiting in the fridge for me.   I cannot emphasize enough the importance of having all sorts of foods already prepped, cooked, and ready to go in the fridge for when meal time rolls around - it is so much easier to put together a healthy meal quickly when all you have to do is throw some stuff together!

So here is how it all came together...

Buffalo Chicken & Goat Cheese Spaghetti

Amy's Buffalo Chicken & Goat Cheese Spaghetti Recipe:

To prepare Buffalo Chicken, simply chop 2 precooked Boneless Skinless Chicken thighs into bite size pieces and mix with 1 cup shredded Carrots.  In a sauce pan heat up 1 Tbsp Butter.  Once melted add 1/4 cup of your fav hot sauce and 1 Tbsp of water.  Once well heated and mixed, toss in bowl with Chicken and Carrots.

To prepare the Goat Cheese sauce, add 2 heaping Tbsp of Goat Cheese to a large bowl, drizzle with 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil, and 1 heaping Tbsp of Plain Yogurt.  Mix together then heat in microwave for about 20 seconds, or until its all melty and saucey.

Get ready to eat:  Take 1 cup of the cooked and shredded Spaghetti Squash and add it to the Goat Cheese Sauce, stirring until thoroughly combined.  Pour this onto a plate and create a 'nest' being sure to leave a little whole in the center.   Then take 1 cup of the Buffalo Chicken mixture and put in the center of the nest.  Chop some sprigs of Cilantro to throw on top.  Sit.  Eat.  Enjoy!
