I want to make love to this dish. Sweet, sweet love. It’s that good. Trust me, you need to try it.

You don’t have to make love to it, though. That could get weird.

I feel really bad for my duplex neighbors. Their baby won’t stop crying. All day, all night. It just cries. The worst part is the only part of our house that is attached to theirs in my room. Lovely. Thankfully I just LOVE children. Lies. That was a lie.

I hate when you order something online and it can’t seem to get to your house fast enough. So you look out your window every time you hear a truck drive by because you think it’s the delivery truck. And open your door at least 5 times just hoping they secretly dropped off the package without you hearing. I do all of those things. I refuse to believe the tracking number which tells me it won’t arrive for another two days, I just am too optimistic for that bull.

So I recently talked about how I have a hard time drinking lately. And how it puts me in a weird spot when I want to hang out with my friends but all of them are out drinking. Well, I’m still feeling that way. So I’ve been spending more time at home on weekends. Which you’d think would be saving me money, but then I end up buying things to fill my time with. Like last Saturday. All my friends were going out and told me to meet them, but what did I do? I went and bought myself a new down comforter and duvet set. Do you know how expensive that sh*t is? Well, I didn’t. I haven’t gotten a new comforter since I was a freshmen in college. I don’t want to age myself, but that was 7 years ago. Anywho, it’s stupid expensive. I spent $300 and I bought on sale! Sales are straight up bullish*t. It’s just a ploy for you to feel like you’re saving money so you’ll actually buy it. And buy more. And I fell for it.

And after spending at least 3 hours rearranging my room, an hour of which was dedicated to putting my comforter into the duvet, I quickly regretted not going out. I don’t understand comforters. How the hell are they suppose to stay in place in the duvet? I used safety pins but I don’t believe that will do the trick. I was literally hopping on my bed holding the duvet in the air hoping the comforter would just fall into place. Doing stuff on your own is hard sometimes.

Now go make love to this food. Make love to it. Just do it. Don’t get a new duvet cover. Don’t do it.

Buffalo Chicken Pasta

5 Stars 4 Stars 3 Stars 2 Stars 1 Star

4.9 from 89 reviews

  • Yield: 4-5 1x


  • 1 large spaghetti squash, cut in half lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoons fat (I used duck fat)
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 1 large carrot, finely chopped
  • 2 stalks of celery, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce (I used Tessamae’s mild or hot wing sauce)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • chopped green onions, to garnish
  • sprinkle of red pepper flakes

For the mayo (this will render about 2/3 cup mayo)

  • ⅔ cup avocado oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 415 degrees
  2. Place spaghetti squash open side down on a baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until skin of squash is slightly soft and the threads of the squash easily come out with a fork
  3. While spaghetti squash is cooling, place a large pan over medium heat. Once pan is very hot, add fat and chicken to brown with a bit of salt and pepper. Once chicken has browned and no longer pink, remove from pan and place in a bowl
  4. In that same pan, still over medium heat, add garlic, onion, carrot and celery to the pan to cook. Sprinkle with a bit more salt. Once onion has become translucent, remove from heat.
  5. Now make the quick mayo. Add all mayo ingredients to a tall container, place an immersion blender to the bottom and turn on. Once the mixture begins to become thicker, slowly pull the immersion blender up the container to make sure mixture mixes completely.
  6. Now finish the dish off by adding the spaghetti squash threads to the pan, along with chicken, mayo, and hot sauce to the pan. Mix together and sprinkle with a bit more salt and pepper. Garnish with green onions and red pepper flakes..

    Just letting you know that I first made this recipe when you posted it 2 years ago and continue to still make it every few months.
    Thank you for this recipe and for introducing me to mayo making! Life Changer. 🙂

    This is a great recipe! I normally don’t like using the substitute of spaghetti squash for pasta because I don’t like the sweetness, but the hot sauce and the mayo complement it very well. I’m not a huge mayo person, but it really adds a creaminess and provides substance. As you say, you really need the immersion blender because it’s so easy to get the mixture emulsified (the Cuisinart even comes with a container that you can use for this). I used Louisiana Hot Sauce and it was really good and spicy. I’m going to try the buffalo chicken casserole soon.

    This dish was OMG awesome!!! I didn’t want to mess with making my own mayo so I used avocado instead. It was really good!!! My husband’s stepmom thought it sounded good with the exception of the avocado (she doesn’t like avocado), but once she tried it she couldn’t taste the avocado! It was wonderful as left overs today!

  6. Connie says:

    This dish is one of my favorites. It has become a staple month after month. The only thing I do differently is I use zucchini noodles instead of squash. (Just not a squash fan). I love buffalo chicken everything. Love love love this recipe. Your recipes are so consistent. I have yet to make anything that I wouldn’t give 5 stars. Thank you!
