Directions

1. Slice chicken breasts into bite-sized chunks and combine with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and hot sauce or chili powder, mixing until evenly seasoned. Marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to one hour.

2. In the meantime, wash and trim the ends of the zucchini. Using a spiralizer, make the zucchini noodles, then set aside.

3. Bring the marinated chicken bites to room temperature and heat two tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Gently stir-fry the chicken pieces on all sides until golden brown. Remove the chicken bites from the skillet and set aside to a plate. You might have to work in batches to avoid crowding the pan and have steamed chicken instead of browned. 

4. In the same skillet over medium-high, add two tablespoons butter, lemon juice, hot sauce, and chicken broth. Bring to a simmer and allow to reduce for 1-2 minutes, stirring regularly. 

5. Stir in fresh parsley and minced garlic, then add the zucchini noodles and toss for two to three minutes to cook it up. Allow the cooking juices to reduce for one minute if the zucchini noodles render too much water. Add the chicken bites back to the pan and stir for another minute to reheat. Garnish with more parsley, fresh thyme, crushed chili pepper, and lemon slices and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Notes:

  • Instead of broth, you can enrich the dish with dry white wine.
  • This recipe is intended for a keto friendly diet, so if you want to lighten it up just use 2 tablespoons butter instead of 4.
  • Zucchini tends to render a lot of water when cooking, so you can sprinkle with salt after spiralizing and allow to sit for a couple of minutes to take off excess water. Rinse well to get rid of salt and drain thoroughly in a colander and pat dry in a kitchen towel before cooking.

    So delicious and super flavorful. I used chili powder for the chicken, and sriracha for the noodles, since spice is hard for me, and it was perfect. Not too spicy, but not bland either. I have a couple of really picky youngsters, and they loved it! Thanks for the recipe. Will definitely make again.

    Its an automatic family favorite!! Used two packets of Sriracha from left over Chinese on chicken and zucchini and it was just perfect and 1/2 lemon with 5 chicken breasts and 3 zucchini. Wish I made all 7 breasts( but increase zucchini to 4or 5. Left overs for lunch tomorrow. Used one more pat of butter in both and used a large pan on high due to volume to brown. Didn't need Broth with extra butter. Put fresh smeared garlic 4 large cloves(back of knife) and dried garlic one teaspoon( in chicken marinade for only few minutes while melting butter and prepping the rest. I forgot the thyme. Love it! Thanks
