COOK THE SQUASH
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Cut the squash in half, lengthwise. Use a spoon to scrape the pulp out and remove the seeds.
Place the squash on a baking sheet with the cut side down. Line the baking sheet with foil for easy clean-up. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until a fork easily punctured the skin and the squash seems soft.
Scrape the cooked squash with a fork, to create the stringy, spaghetti squash.
PREPARE THE CHICKEN:
Heat the coconut oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for about 5 minutes or until soft. Stir in the mushrooms and cook for about 5 more minutes. Add the chicken, chicken broth, lemon juice, tomatoes and spinach to the pan. Stir about 5 minutes until the spinach is wilted and the chicken cooked through. Stir in the parmesan cheese
To serve, place about 1/4 of the spaghetti squash on a plate and top with about 1 cup of the chicken veggie mixture.
