Ingredients

  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 3 tbsp olive oil **
  • 2 tbsp cajun season or your favorite blend
  • 1/2 cup onion diced
  • 1/2 cup green pepper diced
  • 2-3 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar
  • 3 large zucchini spiralized

Instructions

  • Cut each chicken breast into cubes and season with Cajun season (or your favorite blend!)
  • In a large skillet, heat 2 tbsp olive oil to medium heat and add chicken to skillet.
  • Brown chicken on both sides and cook until no longer pink, about 7 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.
  • Heat additional 1 tbsp olive oil and add onions and peppers to skillet. Saute for 3-4 minutes until soft and onions are translucent. Add in garlic and saute additional minute until garlic is fragrant.
  • Whisk in heavy cream and bring mixture to a low boil. Be careful to continue whisking so cream does not scald. Once boiling immediately turn down heat to simmer.
  • Toss spiralized zucchini into skillet and coat with the sauce mixture. Place lid on top of pot and let simmer for about 3 minutes until the zucchini is just tender.
  • Remove skillet from heat, add chicken back to pan and stir in cheddar cheese. This will help the sauce thicken up the rest of the way.
  • Let rest for 1-2 minutes before serving!

Notes

** You could substitute butter for the oil. Please note it will make a much richer sauce, and will add to the fat macros.
