Creamy Spinach-Tomato Chicken with Zoodles

We’ve figured out the perfect way to prepare zucchini noodles (or zoodles) in your Suvie. While we experimented with slow cooking and using the starch zone, we found the best way to ensure perfectly cooked, non-mushy zucchini noodles in the Suvie is to broil them while completing the finishing touches on the rest of the meal. This dish is creamy, savory and bursting with flavor from the spinach-tomato cream sauce we slow cook alongside the chicken. This keto-friendly dish is perfect for anyone looking for a low-carb meal but feel free to add a starch to the starch zone if you’re making this meal for picky eaters or kids.

Low, 1 hour

Starch: 0 minutes

During the cook, toss the zucchini noodles with 1 tsp salt and place in a strainer over a bowl in the fridge. This will help release excess water from the zucchini noodles making them less soggy when broiling. 

After the cook, remove the pans from Suvie.

Drain excess liquid from the chicken pan, move the breasts to a cutting board and pat dry. Take the zucchini noodles from the fridge and squeeze excess water from them. Toss with 1 tbsp olive oil and place in a dry Suvie pan. Broil for 8 minutes tossing halfway through. 

While the zucchini noodles are broiling, slice the chicken against the grain.

Optional step: remove tomato skins as they will often loosen or separate from the tomato flesh during the cook becoming tough to eat.

Add the sliced chicken to the cream sauce and toss to coat. Taste and adjust seasonings. 

After the broil, remove the zucchini noodles from Suvie. Place noodles in a large bowl, then top with the creamy chicken. Garnish with the freshly grated parmesan, sprinkle with parsley and serve.
