  1. Heat 1 tsp olive oil in skillet over medium heat
  2. Sprinkle garlic powder, black pepper, and paprika over chicken breasts and place in skillet
  3. Cook chicken for 4-5 minutes on each side, making sure the center is thoroughly cooked
  4. When chicken is almost done, heat 1/2 tsp olive oil in separate skillet over medium heat and add spiralized zucchini
  5. Cook zucchini for 1-2 minutes, stirring occasionally (Tip - make sure not to over cook the zucchini or it will soften and release all of its water. You just want to warm it up in the skillet)
  6. Remove zoodles from heat and strain any excess water or pat dry with a paper towel
  7. In a pot, heat marinara sauce over low heat until warm (approx. 1 1/2 minutes), stirring continuously
  8. Place zucchini noodles on plates, spoon half the marina sauce on top of each plate of zoodles, and top with chicken breast (sprinkle with nutritional yeast if desired)
