Scale

Ingredients

The sesame sauce

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (Gluten-free, if needed. Coco aminosĀ for paleo + Whole30.)
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey (omit for Whole30)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

The zoodles

  • 4 chicken breasts, cubed
  • 4 medium zucchinis
  • 2 teaspoon sesame oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. Mix all the sesame sauce ingredients together. Place the chicken breasts in a bowl and pour 1/2 cup of the sauce over the top. Mix the chicken then set it aside to marinate while you spiralize the zucchini.
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon of sesame oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and all the marinade to the pan. Cook, occasionally scraping the brown bits off the bottom of the pan, until the chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes.
  3. Add the remaining teaspoon of sesame oil and the zucchini noodles and the sauce to the pan and cook until the noodles are soft, about 5 minutes.
