This Whole 30 Greek Chicken Zucchini Noodles Recipe is the perfect easy, healthy weeknight dinner. Packed with veggies, low in carbs + full of flavor!
If you like easy dinners – you are going to LOVE this Whole 30 Greek Chicken Zucchini Noodles Recipe. I’m pretty much the queen of easy dinners…Who has time to be all fancy on a Tuesday night? Not this girl. I work on the blog in the morning, have work all day, and then I either teach at the gym or workout on my own in the evening. By the time I get home – I want to plant my butt on the couch and turn on Netflix (we can’t stop watching Narcos lately). That’s why all of my recipes are simple and easy to follow.. because that’s how I cook in real life!
For those of you who follow us on Instagram, you know I love to share whatever I’m making for dinner on Instagram stories. Sometimes I have it all together, and follow a recipe… other times, I wing it and hope it tastes good. Without fail – every time I ‘wing it’ I get TONS of messages asking ‘where is the recipe for this?!’. Annnnnd then I have to go back and try to recreate it. Which, in this case – I was more than happy to have these Whole 30 Greek Chicken Zucchini Noodles for dinner twice in one week. Honestly… this was just the product of having half open jars of a few things in my fridge and being sick of them taking up space. But man am I glad I made this – cause it is deeeeelish!
Zucchini noodles are one of my favorite things to use in recipes for a few reasons. They’re an awesome alternative to regular pasta. Low in carbs/calories, gluten/grain free, and you’re getting extra veggies?? Heck YES! Doesn’t get much better than that! I also love that they don’t leave me feeling super full, or in a ‘carb coma’. Believe me, I love the real-deal, gluten filled, home made pasta… but feeling like you’re going to fall asleep after eating it is the worst! Another great thing about zucchini noodles? They take on the flavor of whatever you’re cooking with. So when you pair them with sun dried tomatoes, kalamata olives, and artichoke hearts.. you know it’s going to be good!
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 chicken breasts, cleaned, pounded and cut into 1 inch cubes
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- ½ teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- ⅓ cup kalamata olives, halved
- ⅓ cup sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil
- 1 cup marinated artichoke hearts
- Juice of one lemon
- 2 zucchini, spiralized - off to the side
- In a pan, heat olive oil.
- Add in chicken and spices + sauté until brown on edges, approximately 10 minutes.
- Once chicken is cooked, add in olives, sun dried tomatoes + artichoke hearts. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
- When ready to eat, add in lemon juice and spiralized zucchini. Toss with the rest of the ingredients and cook until noodles start to soften, approx 2-3 minutes.
- Toss all ingredients together over low heat until thoroughly combined, plate + enjoy!
Things we used for this recipe: olive oil, pepper, oregano, thyme, kalamata olives, sun dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, citrus juicer, spiralizer
The best part about this dish is that it is paleo, gluten free, grain free, and dairy free – but it really doesn’t even taste like it. The zucchini noodles make it seem like a big fancy pasta dish, but in reality – it’s super healthy! This would be great for serving for a fun date night.. but I can also verify that it is great when eaten in front of a TV, with sweaty gym hair, at a time that is way later than you should actually be eating dinner. (We all have those nights!)
