Chicken Pesto

Until I got married, well, even after I was married for few years, I wasn't really a big vegetable guy.  Spaghetti squash was definitely out of the question.  Over the last 5 or so years though, I've ventured out a bit.  Here's a recipe we pulled togetherat  the firehouse the other day for some darn good Chicken Pesto Spagetti Squash:

4 Pounds Chicken Thighs

1 Spagetti Squash

1 Cup Fresh Basil

Tablespoon Minced Garlic

1/4 cup Olive Oil

1/4 cup Sunflower Seeds (We didn't have pine nuts)

1/2 cup Parmesan

Cook the Chicken in a little olive oil.  You won't need to much oil.  Salt and pepper to taste. Cut the spaghetti squash in half and place face down in the micro (a litytle trick I learned from Thea), with a little water in the bottom of the dish.  Cook for 8 minutes or so.  Food Process the oil, basil, garlic and cheese (No cheese if you're strict paleo!)  Harvest your spaghetti and mix it all together.  Serve with salad.  D Liscious.
