chicken parmesan and zoodles...

I made this last week and it was delicious. This is what I did...

  • Spiralize two zucchini and one yellow squash and wrapped the zoodles / noodles in paper towels.
  • Heat good marinara sauce in a large sauce pan.
  • Pound two chicken breasts.
  • Crack one egg into a bowl and whip it until frothy.
  • Mix Panko Crumbs, Parmesan Cheese, Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs and pepper into a bowl.
  • Heat a sauce pan that was streamed with oil.
  • Add butter to the pan and melt.
  • Dipp the chicken in the egg mixture, then the crumb mixture, then back into the egg mixture and crumb mixture.
  • Cook the chicken until done.
  • Add marinara sauce to the top of each breast, then mozzarella cheese, chopped, fresh basil and cover the pan that was taken off of the burner.
  • Add the zoodles to the hot marinara and tossed.
  • Place the zoodles  on a  plate and top with the chicken breast.

This dish was both light and delicious as were the leftovers.
The secret: Use a really good marinara sauce as it truly makes a big difference.
