    Instructions
    1. Cut the spaghetti squash in half, crosswise (not the long way).
    2. Scoop out the seeds and discard.
    3. Add 1 cup of water to the pot. Place the spaghetti squash halves in the instant pot, with the cut sides facing up.
    4. Place the lid on the pressure cooker and cook on high pressure for 7 minutes.
    5. After the 7 minutes, quick release the valve at the top of the pressure cooker to lower the pressure.
    6. Remove the lid and the squash. Poke the squash to ensure it's tender. Shred the squash with a fork to create "spaghetti."
    7. Pour out the excess water from the Instant Pot. Turn the pot on the saute' function.
    8. Season the chicken breast cubes with the seasonings.
    9. Add the olive oil to the pot. When the oil is warm add the chicken.
    10. Saute' both sides of the chicken until brown and cooked. (about 3-4 minutes each side) Remove the chicken from the pot and set aside.
    11. Add the minced garlic and cook until fragrant. Deglaze the pot by adding the chicken broth. Scrub the brown bits from the chicken from the bottom of the pot. The brown spots and bits from the chicken are packed with flavor. You want to keep this!
    12. Add the almond milk, whipping cream, cream cheese, and butter to the pot. Stir until combined.
    13. Stir in the broccoli and parmesan cheese.
    14. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the broccoli is soft and the sauce begins to thicken. Add the flour to the pot and stir. This will thicken the sauce. (If you would like a thicker sauce, add an additional tablespoon of flour. This adds an additional 5 calories and 1G of carbs per serving).
    15. Add the chicken back to the pot. Mix well to combine.
    16. Add additional salt and pepper to taste if needed.
    17. Serve the chicken and cream sauce over the spaghetti squash.
