Cilantro Lime Zucchini Noodles with Cumin Chicken

Winter blues? Tired of soups? Too many comfort foods making your waistline larger? 

This refreshing and low carb dinner will make you super excited for summer! I will definitely be making this again when Zucchini's are overflowing from everyone's gardens!

Just making lots of noodles! I got this "as seen on tv"-noodle-maker-from-vegetables from kohl's. I don't know the actual name of it but it I used Kohl's cash to get it. So glad I did! It's super easy to use!

All the ingredients you need for this refreshing dinner!

Final product! So yummy! If you aren't a health nut, you might think it's a little bland. But when you know how good it is for you, it tastes that much better!


    3 large zucchini
    1.5 lbs boneless & skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1" pieces
    1/2 tsp cumin
    1 tsp salt, divided
    1/4 tsp ground black pepper
    Optional: 2 tsp any small hot pepper/jalapeƱo or to taste, seeded and minced (leave seeds in for very hot version)
    1 medium or 1/2 large lime, juice of
    3/4 cup cilantro, chopped
    Cooking spray (I use my home made kind)


    Using a spiralizer or mandoline, make zucchini noodles, transfer into a large bowl and set aside. You can also chop zucchini into any size pieces, if you don't have the gadgets for making zucchini noodles.
    Preheat large deep skillet on high heat and add chicken. Saute until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Add cumin, 1/2 tsp salt and ground black pepper towards the end, stir and cook for another minute. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
    Wipe clean or wash and pat dry the skillet and return to the stove on high heat. Spray with cooking spray and add zucchini noodles. Saute for 1.5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and add previously cooked chicken, remaining salt, small hot peppers/jalapeƱos-we didn't use any, lime juice and cilantro. Stir gently and serve hot.
