I bought a spiralizer a few weeks ago – It’s one of the best purchases I’ve made in awhile! This is one of the meals I had for dinner last week (I made a few using the spiralizer ) – This meal is so simple & easy. Check out the recipe below.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, cut 1/2-inch cubes
  • kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 3/4 lb grape tomatoes, cut in half
  • pinch crushed red pepper flakes
  • Kosher Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • 1 large zucchini, spiralized
  • 2 oz fresh mini mozzarella balls, cut in half

Directions

  1. Start by spriralizing the zucchini using the thickest noodle blade your spiralizer has.
  2. Season the chicken with 1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper and oregano. In a
    large non-stick pan set over med-high heat, heat 1/2 tablespoon of the
    Add the chicken and cook, stirring until browned and cooked
    through, about 6 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Reduce heat to medium, add the remaining oil and garlic and cook until golden, 30 seconds. Add the tomatoes, and crushed red pepper flakes, and season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and black pepper. Reduce the heat to low. Simmer, covered, until the tomatoes soften, 15 minutes.
  4. Increase heat to high, stir in the zucchini and basil, season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook 2 minutes. Add the chicken back to the skillet along with the mozzarella and serve right away.

Enjoy!
