Love trying new things and while trying to eat healthier I decided to try a Lemon Garlic Chicken with a few twists. With a creamy lemon garlic sauce and plenty of parmesan cheese for Papa but I made it with ZOODLES this time!
Chicken Piccatta with a Creamy Parmesan Lemon Garlic Sauce
When I was fighting to get out of the pre-diabeties state, I knew pasta was one of those things I had to cut back or even eliminate. That’s when I discovered ZOODLES! In case you don’t know what zoodles are, you make them from zucchini by using a spiralizer. I got mine on Amazon HERE and LUV LUV LUV IT! It does a lot more than just zoodles!
You can substitute zoodles for just about any pasta recipe. And if you’re growing your own Zucchini, which usually comes in bounties, this is a perfect quick meal to use up the fresh ones. But you can always use spaghetti noodles too if you prefer. This is delicious either way.
One day I’m going to remember to take photos of the steps while making. 😉 But I did get a few to show you how delish this looks. It was a total hit with the family and even converted Papa on the Zoodles. He prefers his slightly cooked and warmed so it’s more like a spaghetti noodle, but I like them raw or cooked.
The recipe is at the bottom. You can substitute milk if you’re counting calories but we prefer the heavy cream version. It really is the only item in the ingredients that one could argue is not totally healthy. But hopefully soon I’ll have fresh cream to make this with once we get the new Homestead up and running.
Hope you try this and let me know what you think!
