Spicy Chicken Zoodles

Zoodles (zucchini noodles) are a very healthy alternate to pasta. They help us increase the vegetable portion in our diet and reduce the carbs. I bought ready-made Zoodles from the Superstore (in Canada) right where the salads are. The one there is called Zucchini Courgette Fettuccine Cut. Many people make them at home also with a vegetable spiralizer.

Spicy Chicken Zoodles Recipe

Ingredients:

Zoodles – 2 boxes of 350 grams

Chicken – Precooked chicken slices cut into strips

Tomato paste – 1/2 cup

Carrots – 2 chopped

Green Chillies – 3 chopped

Nando (or any other chili sauce) – 2 tablespoon

Chedder Cheese – 1/2 cup shredded

Olives – chopped

Soya Sauce – to taste

Black Pepper – to taste

Sesame seed oil – 3 drops

Canola Oil – 2 tablespoons

How To:

  • For this recipe I used leftovers from chicken behari boti I had made earlier (recipe by Fauzia’s Kitchen Fun). You can use any left over chicken or simply marinate chicken in some ginger garlic paste with salt and bake. Cut into thin strips.
  • Heat the pan with some oil and add the carrots. Stir fry till they are cooked and then remove.
  • Put the zoodles (zucchini noodles) in a strainer and place that in the sink. Pour boiling water on top and let it run through the zoodles. Make sure all the water runs through.
  • Place the zoodles in the heated pan with leftover oil and stir fry for 2 minutes. Now stir in the tomato paste, chicken slices, nando sauce, soya sauce, green chilies, olives, carrots and cheese.
  • Let the cheese melt and then shut off the stove. Pour 3 drops of sesame seed on top and cover the pan for a minute.
  • Zoodles are ready! You can garnish with some shreds of cheese or chopped coriander.

These zoodles taste even better the next day after the sauces are truly mixed in!
