Cilantro Lime Chicken

I am constantly on a quest for healthy easy dinners. I like to try new recipes and new ingredients regularly to keep it “spiced ” up in our house hold. This was such an easy recipe and delicious too. I love recipes that are so flavourful but don’t need to many ingredients. I loved how this chicken was served with zucchini noodles too, so delicious I am going to have to keep this recipe for the summer when I have zucchinis on demand from the garden. Hope you give it a try !

Ingredients

3 large zucchini
1.5 lbs boneless & skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1″ pieces
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt, divided
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
2 tsp any small hot pepper/jalapeño or to taste, seeded and minced (leave seeds in for very hot version)
1 medium or 1/2 large lime, juice of
3/4 cup cilantro, chopped
Cooking spray (I use Misto)

Directions

Using a spiralizer or mandoline, make zucchini noodles, transfer into a large bowl and set aside. You can also chop zucchini into any size pieces, if you don’t have the gadgets for making zucchini noodles.
Preheat large deep skillet on high heat and add chicken. Saute until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Add cumin, 1/2 tsp salt and ground black pepper towards the end, stir and cook for another minute. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
Wipe clean or wash and pat dry the skillet and return to the stove on high heat. Spray with cooking spray and add zucchini noodles. Saute for 1.5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and add previously cooked chicken, remaining salt, small hot peppers/jalapeños, lime juice and cilantro. Stir gently and serve hot.
