Make the Zucchini Noodles - Wash a medium-sized zucchini, but you don't have to peel it if you like the green colour in your pasta. The peel contains a good portion of the zucchini's vitamins and minerals, so eat the peel!
Place the zucchini in your Spiral Vegetable Slicer (refer to my photo) and turn the crank.
Grill your boneless/skinless chicken breast in a non-stick skillet (or use non-stick cooking spray). If you are not in the mood to grill chicken, or if you are bereft of kitchen skills and fear giving yourself salmonella poisoning, then just buy it already made at the grocery store. Put the cooked chicken aside.
Toss all ingredients into a clean non-stick skillet on medium heat (in this order) - Olive Oil, Zucchini Noodles (I let them cook for 3 minutes before adding the next ingredients), Crushed Tomatoes and chicken.
Garnish with lemon juice, black pepper, oregano, and/or your favourite salt-free seasoning.
Plate the dish. Sprinkle 1 tsp of Nutritional Yeast, which will impart a cheesy flavour. It's dairy free.
NOTE: If you don't have a spiral vegetable slicer, I strongly recommend you get one, especially considering they are only $30 on amazon.com. Otherwise, you can use a mandolin or a vegetable peeler, neither of which are as quick or as neat-o as the spiral vegetable slicer).
