Recipe: Chicken Zoodle Stir Fry

by JJ Virgin on April 13, 2018

Don’t you just love zoodles? Even the word is fun!

This stir fry features zoodles plus a bunch of other yummy, healthy veggies. Add cooked chicken and Asian flavors, and you’ve got a fast and easy meal that comes together in under half an hour, prep time included.

You can easily cube and cook organic free-range chicken breast for this recipe. On weeknights, I’ll take all the shortcuts I can get, so I usually opt for pulling the meat from a store-bought organic rotisserie chicken.

The same goes for the veggies – I buy pre-cut zucchini noodles, carrot, and bell pepper to save minutes. I can go from grocery bag to plate in 20 minutes or less!

You can eat this stir fry all on its own or add slow-low carbs like steamed quinoa or wild rice for an even more filling, nutritious meal.
