This Chicken Caesar Spaghetti Squash Bake is the perfect quick and healthy weeknight meal! Paleo & Whole30 approved!

Guys I have great news – 2 things are BACK – me from New York and Creamy Caesar Dressing in your life.  Did that make sense?  I am sure the me being back from NY part is obvious but more importantly, Caesar dressing no longer needs to be feared.  For years I stayed away from Caesar salads because they were packed with terrible ingredients like milk, canola oil, cheese, sugar and so much more.  Just google “kraft caesar dressing ingredients” and you will understand.  But my favorite people over at Tessemae’s have managed to create a completely clean Caesar dressing that will bring this gem back into your life!  The stuff is so smooth and creamy and happens to also be Whole30 compliant which basically just means squeaky clean!  Instead of mixing this into a salad I wanted to create a super simple and tasty weeknight spaghetti squash bake.  The best part about caesar is the umami flavor – that savory flavor you can’t quite put your finger on.  If you are looking to this dressing it is at most Whole Foods and being added to new stores all around the country all the time!  Just look in the refrigerated section by produce! 🙂

I mixed the dressing with spaghetti squash, some kale and chicken, tossed it in a pyrex and baked until heated through.  The best part about this is you can toss in any cooked chicken you have.  Leftover chicken from the night before? YUP.  Shredded up rotisserie? YUP.  Pre-cooked chicken from Trader Joes? OH YEAH.  Heck, you could really throw in any meat that is cooked already… I bet chicken apple sausage would be amazing.

Oh and about New York – I can’t wait to tell you all about it!! But I will do a separate post about all of the fun and food we had there so stay tuned! 🙂

    YUM!!! I made this for dinner and loved it! I have leftovers to take lunch for the rest of the week too! I used regular Caesar dressing in mine. Thanks for a great recipe! (Wish there was an option to upload a pic!)

      1. Wow!!! THIS WAS SO GOOD. I didn’t have any greens but I did add some onion and used Primal Kitchen’s ranch because I could not find Tessemae’s. I will be make this again and I can’t wait to try your other recipes!

    Just wanted you to know that this recipe is being made monthly on demand of my now 13 year old daughter who would never eat these ingredients separately! Thanks for the addition of vegetables to this middle school mindset!

    Yummo! I’ve made this several times. It is all it is advertised to be, simple, flavorful, and W30 compliant. Second time I substituted spinach for the kale and it was just as good. This one is a keeper. Thanks!

    This was so tasty, light but filling, and easy to make and cleanup! I’ve made it twice using Cardini’s Caesar and now that I’ve memorized the recipe, will look for Tessamae’s dressing. Great winter dish!
