Chicken and Zucchini Noodle Caprese

This fresh low-carb summer dish is a great way to enjoy your farmer’s market finds. I love swapping noodles for zucchini in so many of my dishes, a few favorites are Kung Pao Chicken Zoodles, Shrimp Scampi Zoodles, and Chicken Zoodle Lo Mein.

How To Make Perfect Zucchini Noodles

When making zoodles (zucchini noodles) I prefer a thicker noodle because it has more of bite and I’m careful not to overcook them so they don’t get watery. Under two minutes is all they need, then I quickly remove them from the hot skillet or they will keep cooking.

The Inspiralizer is the best spiralizer out there in my opinion, all the blades are built-in so easy clean-up and it’s tough enough to cut through a butternut squash with ease.

  1. This is SO good! My husband can’t get enough of this. He loves the zucchini noodles. I had to make this two times already this week. One of our favorites!

  2. Delicious!!! So much flavor and my entire family loved it (picky teens included)  I will for sure add this to our rotation. 

  3. This was packed with ao much flavor.
    I added fresh lemon juice in it too.
    Highly recommend this recipe.

  4. Just made this recipe.  Not great.  Sautéed chicken was a little tough since it’s not marinated.  15 min for tomatoes is way too long.  Cut that time in half.  Recipe Needs a little tweaking  the next time I make it, but I still love Skinnytaste!

  5. I love this recipe but if you cook down the tomatoes as instructed for 15 minutes, they definitely don’t look like the picture here. Just sayin 🙂

  6. Made this last night for dinner to use up some zucchini from the garden – absolutely delicious! I will be making this one again.
