You don’t need to grab your spiralizer and your veggies, it’s all ready to go for you!

  3. To the skillet, add garlic, and cook until fragrant about 30 seconds.
  4. Add butter, oregano and lemon zest. Pour chicken broth to deglaze making sure to scrap up all the browned bits on the bottom of the pan.

  1. I am totally in love with zucchini noodles at the moment. And my kids eat them which is fantastic. I didn’t know these Green Giant products were available, that will save heaps of time mid-week. This chicken recipe looks delicious. I’m definitely going to make this in the next couple days. It looks really tasty.

  2. Crud, I immediately tried to add this to my Shipt order, and they don’t have it at my store. I have a Spiralizer but I’m too lazy to use it!

  3. This was HEAVENLY! The flavors are so delicious and light for the spring and summertime. Love the ease of the already spiralized zoodles. Triple yum!

  4. This was really tasty! My 2-year-old loved it and thought it was really fun to eat zucchini noodles.

  5. How many zucchini would this equate to? I love my Inspiralized and it’s more economical to spiralize 🙂 what a great recipe!

  6. Made this meal last night for lunch today for the family, so far 3/4 of us really like it!! (The fourth is still at school ?). Super easy to make and very flavorful!!

  7. Absolutely delicious! I used my spiralizer to make to own noodles, but it was still a super easy recipe that I will add to our rotation! Thanks Lexi!

  8. Made this tonight- delicious flavors! Judging by the package this should have been 8 servings of zucchini noodles, but they cooked down so much we got less than 4. Super soggy too. Boo! Glad I tried the frozen, but I will go with fresh when we make this recipe again. Luckily I can get them pre-spiralized at my grocery store!

  9. Made this last night, sans the zucchini noodles (didn’t have enough zucchini on hand to spiralize my own). We ate it over cauliflower rice instead. So flavorful and tender! My kids suggested a side of green beans or asparagus (love both of those veggies with lemon 🙂 ) which would have been delicious. Great light, fast and refreshing meal.

  10. My family absolutely loved this dish! It was so flavorful…and healthy!

    A couple of suggestions for the recipe:
    The Green Giant Veggie Spirals (Zucchini – needs to be added to ingredient details) cost $4.99 a package,so I bought 2 medium-sized zucchini and made my own. Then I steamed them in the MW for about 3 minutes. Delicious!

    Also, another editing error in step 4. The word scrap needs an e at the end. 😉

  11. Does the parmesan cheese need to be shredded, grated, shaved, or some other way? Please help. I’m shopping for everything right now but the ingredients list didn’t specify what kind of parmesan cheese! Please and thank you!

  12. If I make this on Sunday, will the noodles hold their texture if I want to meal prep for the week?

  13. This was delicious! I used fresh zucchini from our garden to make the zoodles, and it was a big hit! The kids and hubby loved it! I will definitely make this again.

  14. We loved the fresh flavors of this lighter dinner. We didn’t bother to cut up the chicken but just pounded each breast thin, which made it even easier. I prefer fresh zoodles, about 3 zucchini for 2 people, sauteed in a separate skillet – they’ll be done in about the same amount of time it takes to cook the chicken.
