Zucchini noodles are an easy way to add extra vegetables to your diet without feeling like you’re doing so.  I buy mine already spiralized and frozen, so I just boil mine for a few minutes and they are ready to go.  Super quick and easy for a weeknight dinner!  I added some olive oil, grilled chicken and bacon to this dish and the result was a hearty and savory flavor combo.  I’ve found that zucchini noodles truly taste like whatever they’re paired with; I’m not the biggest roasted zucchini fan but these noodles have become one of my favorite things to make recently.  You’ll love how quick and easy this healthy dinner is!


Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time:  15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Course: Lunch, Dinner
Servings: 4 servings


2 boxes frozen zucchini noodles (I buy mine from Trader Joe’s)
2 large chicken breasts
5-6 pieces of bacon (sugar free for Whole30)
2 TBL olive oil
1 cup spinach
Basil, to garnish


Allow zucchini noodles to thaw, or boil them for 3-4 minutes so they are not frozen.

Add bacon to a skillet over medium low.  Cook for 4-5 minutes or until crispy then remove from pan.  Keep bacon fat in pan.

Add chicken to the same skillet over medium low.  Once browned on all sides (about 4-5 minutes each side), add in zucchini noodles.

Let this cook for about 5-10 minutes together on low.

Just before serving, add spinach and bacon back to the pan.  Drizzle with olive oil and finally garnish with basil if desired.
