Or like this awesomely tasty dish, we've used zoodles (aka zucchini noodles). Owning a handy gadget like the Paderno Veggie Spiralizer is a big help for making these noodles. But if you don't have a veggie spiralizer, you can use a regular vegetable peeler and make zucchini strip noodles.
We recently shared a super easy homemade basil pesto recipe, so if you're keen to make your own, which is highly recommended, then give it a shot. The recipe has never failed to please the crowd. 🙂
I call this chicken pesto zoodle recipe a salad because eating it cold is the way it was originally designed. But my partner heated his up in the microwave for 1.5 minutes and he loved it just the same. I also have a a slightly different recipe for a hot pesto chicken, which is also why I named this a salad. But given that my partner liked it hot, it would work equally well for a hot dinner meal as well.
Remember you don't want to over cook the chicken because you want it super tender.
Hope you enjoy it.
