  • 2 medium zucchinis
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh basil leaves, for garnish


  1. Begin by preparing your zoodles. Using a spiralizer, turn the zucchinis into noodles. If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can use a vegetable peeler to create thin ribbons. Set zoodles aside.

  2. Season both sides of the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for about 5 minutes per side or until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through. Remove from skillet and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing it into strips.

  3. In the same skillet, pour in the marinara sauce and warm it over medium heat. Stir in half the grated Parmesan cheese until it is well incorporated into the sauce. Keep the sauce warm on low heat.

  4. Combine the zoodles and the remaining Parmesan cheese in a large salad bowl, tossing well to mix. Top with the sliced chicken and pour the warm marinara sauce over the salad. Toss gently to ensure everything is well coated.

  5. Garnish with fresh basil leaves and serve immediately. Enjoy your delectable and nutritious Chicken Parmesan Zoodle Salad!
