LEMON GARLIC CHICKEN ZOODLES RECIPE

Chicken with zoodles come in a variety of recipes, this specific one has some tanginess to it, and a strong garlic taste. Not only is it one way to prevent leftover rotisserie chicken from going to waste, but it’s low on carbs, high on protein and of course nutritious. With rotisserie, you can also make: Creamy Crack Chicken Lasagna with ranch and bacon, Chicken Stuffing Casserole, or Classic Chicken Salad.

First make your zucchini spirals. In case you don’t own a spiralizer, you can use a mandolin and slice them into juliennes.

    1. Put a tablespoon of olive oil to heat over medium-high heat in a frying pan. Sear in your zoodles for 2 to 3 minutes.

    2. Take the zoodles out and strain them from the extra juices.

    3. Clean out the pan with a wipe, and pour in another tablespoon of oil over medium-high. Place in the shredded chicken and sear until browned. Add in the cherry tomatoes, parsley, and diced onion until tender.

    4. Mix your lemon juice, pepper, salt, and a tablespoon of olive oil in a bowl.

    5. Place the zoodles back into the pan, top with the olive oil and lemon mix, and saute for 2 to 3 minutes. Plate and add parmesan on top.

This is already a full meal. If you’re keeping it carb-free, you can serve it with a Cucumber Onion Salad as a side.

In case it’s only a low-carb diet, side with some Italian Bread since crusty bread pairs well with zoodles. Then for dessert, a great sugar-free option is Jello.

Recipe Variations (Lemon Garlic Chicken Zoodles)

Pasta is not too different from zoodles, so you can treat them as such!

    1. Eat them with some tomato sauce.

    2. A good dressing for zoodles is pesto. Anything from sun-dried tomato basil to regular basil.

    3. Zoodles topped with a combination of spinach and kale coated in honey, lemon juice, and olive oil are also delicious.

    4. Pad Thai-style zucchini noodles also sound amazing!

    5. Artichoke hearts mixed with tomatoes and roasted bell pepper go well with zoodles too.

    6. Roasted bell peppers are also an ingredient in Romesco sauce along with almonds which work well with zucchini noodles.
