Chicken with Lemon Basil Zucchini Noodles.

I'm back!...with a quick recipe by popular demand!  This Chicken with Lemon Basil Zucchini Noodles is sure to please and is good for you too!  I hope you like it!


4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
4-5 medium sized zucchini
2 cups basil, stems removed, packed and
3 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup butter, clarified
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1/2 lemon, juiced
salt and pepper to taste


  1. Dice basil and garlic, and place in a bowl with olive oil, red wine vinegar, and lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
  2. Next, clarify your butter.  Clarifying sounds fancy, but really, you're just removing the milk solids from the butter.  Heat butter in a medium high skillet until the butter begins to foam.  Skim the foam with a spoon and discard.  What you're left with is amazing. wonderful. heavenly clarified butter.
  3. After you've clarified your butter, place chicken in your skillet and allow to brown and cook on both sides, usually three to five minutes on both sides, depending on size.
  4. While your chicken is cooking, using a spiralizer, spiralize the zucchini and set aside.
  5. When chicken is done, remove from pan, place zucchini noodles in skillet and toss with chicken drippings and remaining clarified butter. 
  6. Lastly, toss the lemon basil mixture into the noodles and saute' for 2-3 minutes, until garlic is cooked and mixture is incorporated.
