Cilantro Lime Chicken & Zoodles

Cilantro Lime Chicken & Zucchini Noodles


I have been working to help heal my gut. SO I am on a mission to find clean healthy recipes and to use 100% organic ingredients.  I found this Paleo recipe for Cilantro Lime Chicken on a friends Facebook page and just had to give it a try. I am not sure the original source but it was delish!


What you need:


3 large zucchini

1 lb Organic Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, cubed

1/2 tsp cumin

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp ground black pepper

2 tsp jalapeño or to taste, seeded and minced

Juice of 1/2 a lime

3/4 cup cilantro, chopped


What you do:


Wash, Peel and Spiral the Zucchini.  I use a Spiralizer OR you can use a mandolin.  If you don’t have either of those you can simply cut them into small slices.  Chop the jalapeño. Chop the cilantro. Set aside.

Heat oil in a large skillet. Add chicken and cook till browned.  Add cumin, salt and pepper.  Cook for another minute or two then remove from the heat.

In a separate large skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add the zucchini for about 2 minutes.

Remove from heat and add the chicken, cilantro, lime and jalapeño to the zucchini.  Serve hot.

I also cut the noodles in half because they can be super LONG if you use the spiralizer.
