Pesto Parmesan Chicken on Zucchini Noodles

This super simple bad boy was created out of a carving for pesto one night. While I pretty much never do real pasta anymore, I do enjoy a great pesto sauce and pesto reminds me of great Italian pasta dishes. Instead of doing damage to my body with a high influx of carbs, I whipped out the veghetti maker and loaded up of nutrient and water packed zucchini noodles.  In less than 18 minutes, I was putting dinner on the table and getting rave reviews on the meal.

Pesto Parmesan Chicken on Zucchini Noodles
Serves: Serves 4 - 6
 
Ingredients
  • 2 large chicken breasts cut into chunks
  • 4 large zucchini peeled and left whole
  • ½ cup Shredded parmesan cheese (or Italian Cheese mix)
  • ⅓ cup Pesto sauce
  • Black pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. In a skillet with non-stick spray, cook chicken thoroughly seasoning with black pepper.
  2. In a separate pan use a veghetti (tool that spiral cuts vegetables into noodle like texture) to create zucchini noodles.
  3. Sauté on medium-high heat until the zucchini softens a little and starts to brighten.
  4. Toss in pesto sauce and mix well.
  5. Spray a glass baking pan with non-stick spray.
