Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. If using whole zucchini, spiralize it or cut it into zoodles and set it aside.
  2. Add all the sauce ingredients together in a saucepan and blend until smooth with an immersion blender. (Or blend together in a food processor, then transfer to a saucepan.)
  3. In the saucepan, bring the sauce to a boil on medium heat. Lower the heat and let the sauce simmer while you prepare the chicken.
  4. Season the chicken with thyme, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  5. Heat up a large frying pan with oil on medium heat. Fry the chicken for about 6 minutes per side or until the center is no longer pink.
  6. Right before serving, toss the zoodles together in the Alfredo sauce until they are completely covered.
  7. Divide the creamy zoodles onto plates and place sliced pieces of chicken on top. Garnish with shredded Parmesan, ground black pepper, and parsley.

Tip

If you don't have a spiralizer, you can often buy packaged spiralized zucchini. You can also just use a vegetable peeler or a sharp knife to make noodle-like ribbons.
