Cooking the Chicken

I seasoned my chicken breasts with just salt and pepper and cooked them over medium heat on the non-stick skillet until cooked through.

I set the chicken aside to be cut into strips for later.









Zoodling!

We have this fancy zoodle machine that makes turning zucchini into zoodles a breeze - I also have used hand zoodlers in the past, they just take a tad longer and you get a forearm workout in! I spiralized the zucchini and set them aside








Sweet Corn Sauce

To make the sauce for this dish, I took 5 cups or corn and blended it in the blender until somewhat smooth. I used frozen corn and just cooked the 5 cups in the microwave for 6 minutes before adding it to the blender

If the corn isn't blending well, add a small amount of chicken stock to make it easier to blend.







Next, I cooked up the shallots, garlic, and lemon juice in a non-stick skillet. Once they were translucent, I added in the blended corn and stirred


If the sauce is too thick, add low sodium chicken stock in 1/4 cup increments until it forms a creamy consistency










Putting it all Together

I tossed the zoodles and halved cherry tomatoes in the pan the chicken originally cooked in and cooked until the zoodles were soft- about 5 minutes


I divided the "pasta" evenly between bowls and topped each bowl with a few spoonfuls of the sweet corn sauce and the strips of cooked chicken

Top each bowl with some fresh basil, Serve and Enjoy!
