Prep

  1. Chicken breasts - Slice into strips. Season with some salt and pepper and tenderize with a fork. (Can be done up to 1 day ahead)
  2. Zucchini - Turn zucchini into 'noodles' with a spiralizer or peel off strips with a peeler. (Note: If you prefer, you can also just slice your zucchini to make a zucchini saute.)
  3. Prep breading stations - In one bowl or container, whisk eggs with some salt and pepper. In a separate container with a lid (or Ziplock bag), combine almond meal, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper in a container with a lid or Ziploc bag.

Make

  1. Heat oven to 375F / 190C degrees.
  2. Dip chicken into eggs and then toss into almond meal mixture. Cover with lid or zip bag and shake until almond meal coats chicken. Brush sheet pan with some oil and spread chicken out onto sheet pan. Bake on the middle oven rack for 12 to 15 minutes, until chicken is done and golden.
  3. While chicken bakes, heat a skillet over medium heat. Add oil and zucchini with a sprinkle of salt. Saute until zucchini is tender, ~2 minutes for zucchini noodles and 4 minutes for zucchini slices.
  4. Heat sauce briefly in the microwave.
  5. Top zucchini with sauce and then chicken. Enjoy!
