Healthy low-carb spiralized zucchini noodles tossed in fragrant garlic chicken. This simple yet flavorful dish comes together in under 15 minutes with just 4 simple ingredients. Summer is right around the corner and all I want to eat in summer is zucchini noodles. They’ve became a great replacement to pasta over the past few months and have helped me et much healthier dinners and trim off a few pounds as well.
These garlic chicken zoodles have become my go to dish because of how simple and delicious these zoodles are. The whole dish consists of chicken breasts cut into small chunks, a few cloves of minced garlic, spiralized zucchini noodles and olive oil. After those 4 main ingredients, you can add in pretty much anything else you’d like. I like to stick with salt, pepper and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes but parmesan is a great option too!
- 2 medium chicken breasts cut into 1/2 inch pieces
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 cloves garlic minced or crushed
- 3 zucchini spiralized
- 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes optional
- salt & pepper to taste
- Heat a large heavy-duty pan to medium/high heat. Add olive oil and minced garlic. Cook garlic for 30 seconds to 1 minute or until fragrant. Be careful not to burn the garlic.
- Add chicken, red pepper flakes and salt & pepper. Cook chicken for 5-6 minutes or until golden and cooked through.
- Toss in spiralized zoodles and cook for 1 minute then turn off heat. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese if desired.
Very simple and delicious! I will definitely be making this again.
I made it tonight and it was delicious! I halfed the recipe for 2 people and still have leftovers for tomorrow.
Wondering if this recipe could be made with frozen doodles??
It should work!
What is the Carb count? 😊
Am I missing the nutritional facts?

The best and soon easy!
Are you making the zoodles or buying them? Hoping to have a succesful first go at Zoodles.. please guide me. Suggestions how to make or what kind to buy?
I usually make my own zoodles but buy them when I am in a rush. You will need a spiralizer if you want to make them at home. If purchasing, any size will work just fine!
This is straight up DELICIOUS! Easy, healthy, and it reheated like a dream! I would omit some of the red pepper flakes if you don’t like spice – LEFTOVERS have some heat (which i love!) it will definitely be on regular rotation in our house!
HEy, this recipe looks great i was just wondering what the calorie count was for each serving. It would be great if you got me back asap because im hoping on making it tonight!

Looks great. How does it hold up and next day leftover? I’m afraid it my get to squishy?
The hold up to the next day but they do release a lot of water.

I made this yesterday and it was delicious. My husband, who does not even eat zucchini tried it and thought it was “pretty, pretty, good!” I served a second batch with a little spaghetti sauce and he really enjoyed it. Thank you for a recipe that gets my husband to eat zucchini!
