Do you ever eat a meal so deliciously healthy it puts you in a good mood? Mediterranean Chicken Over Zoodles is THAT dish for me. I seriously love when a whole meal consists mostly of vegetables but doesn’t necessarily feel that way. 🙂 Most Americans are under-consuming vegetables and over-consuming simple carbohydrates in the form of bread, pasta, and sugary treats. What’s the solution? Substitute vegetables for simple carbohydrates. I know you all knew that–I was just testing you. One of my favorite ways to do that is to use zucchini noodles (zoodles) in place of pasta noodles. Zoodles give you the mouth-feel of pasta and fill you up without weighing you down. Zoodles will easily take on the flavor of the dish you are using them in.
If you haven’t made or used zoodles before, don’t be nervous. They are super easy to make. You will have to buy a spiralizer (this is the one I use) or look for them pre-spiralized at your local grocery store. My spiralizer is hands-down one of my favorite kitchen tools.
Mediterranean Chicken Over Zoodles would pair nice with a dry white wine. Who am I kidding? It would pair nice with whatever wine you have in your pantry. Bottoms up and happy cooking!
