Garlic Lemon Chicken Zoodles

Ingredients:

  • 4 Large Zucchini, spiralized
  • 1 lb of boneless chicken breasts ( I prefer thin sliced)
  • 1 cup of cherry/ grape tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lemon
  • Fresh cilantro or parsley (chopped)
  • Salt and Pepper

Instructions:

  • Season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Melt 1 TSBP of butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add chicken and saute each side for 3-4 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
  • Remove from skillet and allow to cool off for a few minutes before using a fork to shred the chicken. (I shredded it into large pieces and threw the whole thing back into the skillet to cook for a couple more minutes just to ensure it was cooked all the way through.)
  • Melt the remaining butter and add the garlic. Cook for about one minute (or until you start getting the fragrance of the garlic).
  • Stir in the zucchini noodles and add half a lemon. Cook for 3-4 minutes and drain off excess moisture. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add in shredded chicken, tomatoes, and cilantro/ parsley. Gently toss everything together.

Top with parmesan cheese and enjoy!
