prepping zucchini noodles for the chicken pesto zucchini noodles recipe

You don’t have to sneak healthy veggies into your meals when they taste THIS good.

Replacing pasta with zucchini noodles is delicious. Add to fresh-from-home pesto and grilled chicken, and you have an amazing meal.

Hip Tip: To make the zucchini noodles, I used this micro plane spiral cutter found on Amazon.com (pictured above) or try using a cheese grater turned on its side. Collin’s favorite is this World Cuisine Spiral Vegetable Slicer.

steps to make the chicken pesto zucchini noodles recipe

My family absolutely loved this meal – the zucchini noodles rock!

They are super light but also very satisfying! The pesto was super flavorful and yummy as well. If you’re in a rush and don’t have time to make your own pesto, feel free to grab a jar at the store instead.

Hip Tip: For grilling, I use a cast iron grill pan like this one for grilling indoors, and I LOVE it!
