Tastefully Fit Trimline’s Nadia Sharifi and Chef Wes joined us with another delicious and nutritious meal: Chicken (or shrimp) Scampi with Zucchini Noodles. The recipe is as follows:
Olive Oil Spray
6 oz or 8 oz Skinless, Boneless Chicken Breast halves
2 Medium Zucchini, cut into spirals using a spiral slicer (or purchase spiraled)
1/2 Large Red Pepper, sliced thin
1/3 Cup Mushrooms, sliced thin
2 Tablespoons crushed garlic
2 Tablespoons fresh Basil
1/3 Cup Chicken Stock (sodium-free, fat-free)
Sea Salt & Pepper
1 oz Parmesan Cheese (optional)
Coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Cook chicken in the hot skillet until browned and no longer pink in the center, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Add vegetables, garlic, basil and stock. Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes. While simmering place zucchini in another nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir until tender yet firm to the bite, 3 to 4 minutes.
Transfer zucchini to a serving plate and add chicken scampi on top. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese (optional).
Makes ONE Serving = 1 Protein, 2 Veggies, 1/2 Dairy (if you add Parmesan Cheese)
