Chicken Fajita Zucchini Noodles

Nov 21, 2019

Ingredients:

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 4 medium zucchini, spiralized
  • 2 medium bell peppers – 1 red, 1 yellow, cut into strips
  • 1 large tomato, cut into chunks
  • 1 large onion, cut into strips
  • 1 package sliced mushrooms
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Teaspoon cumin
  • 1 Teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 1 Teaspoon chili powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • lime wedges for serving (optional)

Directions:

Following directions for spiral slicer, cut the zucchini into noodles (hint: thicker zucchini produces the best noodles). Lightly pat the noodles dry with paper towels to extract any moisture. Place to the side while preparing other ingredients. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. When the oil is hot, sear chicken for 3-4 minutes on each side. Turn heat to low and and cover, cooking an additional 8-10 minutes. Once chicken is cooked through, remove to a plate and cover with foil. Return the pan to medium-high heat and add peppers, onions, mushroom, tomato and the spice mixture. Saute 3-4 minutes until veggies begin to soften, turn the heat to high and add the zucchini noodles. Cook 2 minutes, until noodles are just slightly wilted. Cut chicken into bit size pieces and toss with noodles and veggies. Serve the fajita noodles with lime wedges for topping. Serves 4.
