Healthy Fried Chicken and Zucchini Pasta

Ingredients (per serving)
-1 chicken breast, split in half
-approximately 1/4 C almond meal
-1 egg
-1 TB or desired amount of cajun seasoning or similar

-3 zucchini (if small, less if chunky), sliced or cut into strips using a vegetable peeler if you don't have a spiralizer
-3/4 C cherry tomatoes, halved
-1/2 C onion
-2 cloves of garlic, finely minced

Sauce (a big batch):
-4 red peppers
-1 C onions
-2 TB italian seasoning or other preferred combo

You will also need EVOO to fry the chicken.

Anyway, mix the egg with just a little water and drench the chicken in it before plopping into the almond meal mixed with whatever seasoning you prefer. Puree the red peppers with the onion and the seasonings and cook on medium or just a bit lower while you are cooking the rest of the goods.

Heat a skillet on medium or just a little higher with EVOO.  Add the chicken and start frying.

In another skillet, start sauteeing the veggies for the pasta with the garlic.

Flip the chicken after about five minutes or so, and continue to cook and flip as needed until done.  Serve with pasta and red pepper sauce.

Sorry for the lackluster photo, my phone camera is slowly dying.  I have it on my to do list to upgrade my phone soon.

I love fish and chicken made in almond meal, and zucchini is a great pasta substitute.  This has been one of my better zone diet-friendly meals in the past couple of weeks.  This would work too for paleo or pretty much any healthy initiative that you may be on.

Happy crafting! Pin It Now!
