But alas, it’s here and I promise it’s worth the wait! This Lemon Chicken Zoodles with Spicy Sesame Oil is a game changer for your weeknight menu.
Time: 30 minutes
1 lb chicken breasts (about 2 large)
6 cups zucchini spirals
1 Tbsp avocado oil
1 tsp fresh minced garlic (dried works fine also)
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
4 fresh sage leaves, torn
1 lemon, sliced in half
3 Tbsp Chosen Foods Spicy Sesame Oil
1.) If you have a favorite way to cook chicken breast, feel free to do it your own way. MY personal favorite is to season with salt and pepper then use an indoor grill with a press, but if you don’t have one of those, here are the simple steps to successfully cooking chicken breast that I first learned from The Kitchn!
2.) While your chicken is cooking, chop the tomatoes and walnuts.
3.) Once your chicken is almost done cooking, in a medium skillet heat the avocado oil. Add the zoodles, garlic and pepper and saute for about 3-4 minutes. Squeeze the lemon halves over the zoodles and stir.
4.) Add in cherry tomatoes and cook for additional 2 minutes until they soften slightly.
5.) Slice chicken and place on top of zoodles and tomatoes, followed by the walnuts and torn sage pieces. Squeeze additional fresh lemon juice on top, if desired, then drizzle with Chosen Foods Spicy Sesame Oil and enjoy!
