Zoodles were a major hit a few years ago. They were the hottest things on the street (I may be exaggerating a bit), low carb, fun to make, and a great alternative when you were craving pasta. However, they quickly spiraled (pun intended ????) down a mushy and watery hill. Nobody wants mushy make believe pasta.
Well folks, we are bringing them back! Here's how to make sure our zoodles are thick and crispy ever time.
How to Properly Make Zoodles
1.) Don’t over cook them. They need 1 minute MAYBE 2 in a skillet to warm them up and they are good.to.go! 2.) Be sure to strain any excess water that is released when warming them up. Use a colander or pay dry with a towel. 3.) Finally, it’s all about the sauce. Top off your zoodles with a rich, tasty sauce and bam you’ve got yourself some delicious, flavorful, non-soggy zoodles.
Moreover, everyone needs a quick, weeknight meal that won’t break the bank and keep you feeling your absolute best. This Easy Chicken Zoodle Marinara dish meets both of those needs. It takes 25 minutes to whip up and is packed with veggies and lean protein. Can you say #WININING?!
The key to these zoodles it to remember we are warming them up not cooking them to mush (see above for how to make those crispy zoodles you’ve been dreaming about). For the sauce, I use my all time favorite marinara, Rao’s Homemade. I love it because the ingredients are simple and all natural and I can easily find a jar at my local grocery store. Love a different kind? Great! I’m not here to tell ya what marinara sauce to choose, you do you girlfriend! Finally, we are topping it all off with a juicy, tender chicken breast flavored with simple spices you probably already have in your pantry.
Simple right?! Hope y’all enjoy ????Print
