Our Thai Chicken and Zucchini Noodles Recipe is the perfect dish for those who are craving pasta but are searching for a lighter and healthier meal. 

We love pasta in our house, but unfortunately, the excess amount of carbs in a typical meal is not so helpful when trying to lose weightchicken and zucchini noodles. So, in an effort to make everyone happy with a healthy, yet delicious dinner, we decided to combine chicken and vegetable noodles with a rich and creamy peanut, soy sauce. The end result – a dinner that everyone loved! 

This recipe does take a little bit of prep work before it can be assembled. The chicken needs to be cooked and shredded before adding it to the skillet. There are two easy ways to get this accomplished: buy/cook a whole chicken or cook 3 chicken breasts in an Instant Pot (in 20 minutes) and then shred the meat. 

You also must spiralize your zucchini to get your ‘noodles’. We use a 5 blade Spiralizer which turns vegetables into the perfect noodle substitute. Just add a little sauce and protein and everyone will be asking for seconds!
