Zucchini noodles + pesto + cherry tomatoes + chicken = delicious dinner!

Ingredients

    1/2 lbs. chicken breast

    1 tsp. avocado oil

    1/2 c. cherry tomatoes

    2 sml. zucchini

    2 tbsp. basil pesto

Directions

Heat a large pan over medium heat and add avocado oil. Once hot, add chicken strips to pan and cook through, about 8 minutes. Once cooked, set chicken aside. 

Add halved cherry tomatoes to the pan and cook for 1 minute over medium-low heat. Use a spiralizer or julienne peeler to turn the zucchini into “noodles,” and add the noodles to the pan. Add cooked chicken back to the pan, stir, and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat, top with pesto, and serve.
