Step 1Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C).
Step 2Brush squash with canola oil and place squash flesh side down on baking sheet. Bake 40 minutes or until squash is tender.
Step 3While squash is baking, combine flour and oregano in shallow bowl. In second shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs with pepper. In third bowl, add whisked egg.
Step 4Dip chicken into flour mixture, then egg, then bread crumbs shake off excess with each step.
Step 5Mist breaded chicken with canola oil cooking spray on both sides and place on baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes, top with marinara and Parmesan cheese and bake additional 15 minutes until heated and cheese is melted.
Step 6Once squash is cooled, pull fork through flesh, creating spaghetti-like strands.
Step 7Serve chicken on top of spaghetti squash and sprinkle with fresh basil.
