14 Mar Lemon Garlic Chicken “Zoodles”
Lemon Garlic Chicken Zoodles:
2 six oz. chicken breasts (cooked), cut into 1-inch cubes
4 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
1 cup Heirloomtomatoes, quartered
1 clove garlic, minced
Juice of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon fine grain salt
Ground black pepper to taste
Grated parmesan cheese (Phase 2 option)
Using a spiralizer create zucchini spaghetti.If you dont have a spiralizer use a regular vegetable peeler to vertically peel long, thin strips of the zucchini.
Spray non-stick spray on to a pan.
Once hot, add zucchini noodles and cook for about 2 minutes, until zucchini noodles (zoodles) are tender but still retain some crunch.
Let the noodles rest for about 3 minutes so that they can release all of the moisture. Transfer noodles to a colander and drain the excess water from the pan.
Add cooked, diced chicken breast to the zoodle pan.
Add tomatoes and parsley, lower to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes, or until tomatoes start to break down and release some of their juice.
In the meantime in a small bowl combine lemon juice, garlic, salt, and lemon pepper.
Add zoodles to the pan alongside the lemon juice mixture.
Stir until everything is combined and heated through.
Phase 2: Sprinkle shreddedParmesan cheese on top and use olive oil for lemon juice mixture.
