Heat 1 tablespoon of the 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. Remove the chicken from the pan.
Add the remaining tablespoon of sesame oil and the zucchini noodles to the pan. Let them cook for 2-3 minutes, until they begin to soften.
