Chicken Parmesan with Zucchini Noodles


Yum!!! This was one of the best meals I've made in a while and it was delicious!! My boys cleaned their plates so I know it was good!! Hope you like it as much as we did. I used a couple different recipes and just combined them to make it my own. You can find them here and here. For this recipe, you will need a spiraler. Mine is from William Sonoma and you can find it here. You can find one at Bed, Bath, and Beyond for a bit cheaper. 

Ingredients:


3-4 medium zucchini, spiraled 
1/4 onion, diced
1 garlic clove, diced 
4 (about 8 oz each) chicken breast, fat trimmed, sliced in half to make 8
3/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs (I used Italian)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp butter, melted (or olive oil)
3/4 cup mozzarella cheese 
1 cup marinara or your favorite spaghetti sauce
cooking spray

Directions:

  • Place zucchini noodles in a colander and sprinkle with salt.
  • Allow the zucchini noodles to drain. Toss and squeeze out any extra moisture. Set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 450°. Spray a large baking sheet lightly with spray.
  • Combine breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese in a bowl. Melt the butter in another bowl. Lightly brush the butter onto the chicken, then dip into breadcrumb mixture. 
  • Place on baking sheet and repeat with the remaining chicken. Lightly spray a little more oil on top and bake in the oven for 20 minutes. 
  • Turn chicken over, bake another 5 minutes.  
  • Remove from oven, spoon 1 tbsp sauce over each piece of chicken and top each with 1 1/2 tbsp of shredded mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted.
  • Add oil to a large saucepan.
  • Add the onion and cook for 2-3 minutes until tender.
  • Add in garlic and cook for an additional minute.
  • Add zucchini noodles to the sauce and cook for 2-3 minutes or until tender.
  • Add enough spaghetti sauce to lightly coat noodles and toss


Serve noodles with chicken on top..... It was perfect with a salad and garlic bread. Enjoy!!
