Teriyaki Chicken Zucchini Noodles - The easiest 10-minute HEALTHY and LOW-CARB Asian zucchini noodles with a homemade teriyaki sauce made from scratch!!!

On my way home from NY to LA, I decided to stop by New Orleans.

Except.

It hasn’t been a cute trip.

All I’ve been eating is beignets.

Literally.

That’s all I’ve been doing.

Because Cafe Du Monde is open 24 hours.

It’s dangerous territory, guys.

But fortunately, I am heading home to Los Angeles today.

Or else.

I’d be eating 37 more beignets in a 12-hour period.

So I’m just going to stay home and stick to this strict zucchini noodle diet.

K, thanks.

1 hour10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds (4 medium-sized) zucchini, spiralized
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and 1/4 cup water; set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, add soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, honey and 1 cup water; bring to a simmer. Stir in cornstarch mixture until thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 2 minutes; let cool to room temperature. Reserve 1/4 cup and set aside.
  3. In a gallon size Ziploc bag or large bowl, combine soy sauce mixture and chicken; marinate for at least 30 minutes to overnight, turning the bag occasionally. Drain the chicken from the marinade.
  4. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 3-4 minutes.
  5. Stir in zucchini noodles and 1/4 cup reserved soy sauce mixture until well combined, about 2 minutes.
  6. Serve immediately, garnished with sesame seeds, if desired.
