ZOODLES

You don’t need to spend your whole entire pay check on a Zoodle maker. Mine looks like this:

With minimal ingredients, abeautifully rich and creamysauce is ready in less that 10 minutes with the extra additionof extra sun-dried tomatoes, a tonne of parmesan, red chilli flakes and dried basil.

Serves: 6 people

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 700 g | 1 1/2 lb skinless chicken thigh fillets , cut into strips
  • 120 g | 4oz fresh semi-dried tomato strips in oil , chopped *See Notes
  • 100 g | 3.5oz jarred sun dried tomatoes in oil , chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic , peeled and crushed
  • 300 ml |1 1/4 cup thickened cream , reduced fat or full fat (or half and half)
  • 1 cup shaved Parmesan cheese
  • Salt to taste
  • Dried basil seasoning
  • Red chilli flakes
  • 2 large Zucchini (or summer squash), made into Zoodles (use a vegetable grater if you don't have a Zoodle grater)

Instructions

  • Heat the butter in a pan/skillet over medium high heat. Add the chicken strips and sprinkle with salt. Pan fry until the chicken is golden browned on all sides and cooked through.

  • Add both semi-dried and sun dried tomatoes with 1 tablespoon of the oil from the jar (optional but adds extra flavour), and add the garlic; sauté until fragrant. (While the chicken is browning, prepare your Zoodles with a Zoodle maker OR with a normal vegetable peeler.)

  • Lower heat, add the cream and the Parmesan cheese; simmer while stirring until the cheese has melted through. Sprinkle over salt, basil and red chilli flakes to your taste.

  • Stir through the Zoodles and continue to simmer until the zoodles have softened to your liking (about 5-8 minutes) and serve.

Notes

*If you can't find semi-dried tomato strips (usually found in a deli), sub with extra jarred sun-dried tomatoes

    Love this recipe! Just made it for a second time but used Hearts of Palm pasta noodles. Works even better than the zoodles IMO. Fantastic recipe!

    I made this the other night and it was amazing. I added artichokes and sautéed mushrooms as well.

    My family loves this dish and we make it often. I like it better served over spiralized butternut squash. They have a firmer texture than the zucchini. Some capers also add some great flavor to this dish!

    This is SUCH a fabulous, rich, flavorful dish! I love the taste of sun-dried tomatoes and cream together. Tastes like a dish you’d get at a nice restaurant. Definitely would be just as delicious with mushrooms added or substituted for the zoodles and over a chicken breast, but amazing just as written. Thank you!

    I just prepared this for lunch today.
    The result was phenomenal!
    One of the best Keto dishes I ever made, a new favorite for sure!
    Since I couldn’t find “thickened cream” I substituted with 200g whipped cream (Schlagsahne) + 125g Creme Doublé.
    Turned out perfect!
    Although with a common potato peeler I just put the fettuccine style zoodles in the same pan, no simmering in water since they turned out too soft, straight in the pan is more like “al dente”… ?

    I came across your website yesterday whilst searching for low carb dinners and decided to make this dish. I wasn’t too sure about so many sun-dried tomatoes but WOW this dish is absolutely delicious!! I just used the sun dried tomatoes in oil from a jar as I couldn’t find the semi dried ones and I also substituted the cream for mascarpone cheese. This dish is super easy to make but is restaurant quality. Feeding a family of four is never easy but this was voted a real winner by all. If like my family you have a good appetite, add extra chicken!
