  • 1 large Zucchini
  • 2 oz Chicken Breast
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 cloves Garlic minced
  • 2 slices Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 Tomato
  • 1 tbsp Cilantro chopped
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 Onion
  • Salt to taste


  • Thoroughly wash the chicken breast and dry properly. Chop the chicken into small pieces and place in a bowl. Add in the black pepper, salt, and minced garlic and allow to marinate the chicken slices.
  • Place a frying pan over medium heat and pour in olive oil. Fry the marinated chicken slices for about 5 minutes. Allow it to cook until it becomes tender.
  • Add in the onion and tomato. Allow it to cook for an additional 3 minutes. Remove from heat when the mixture becomes juicy.
  • Now wash the zucchini and cut off the tips. Begin at the top of a grater, then push the zucchini along the grater to make long and slim ribbons just like noodles. Make sure to do away with the seeds. You can also use a spiralizer to make zucchini spirals instead.
  • Place the zucchini noodles in a pot with water and boil for 1 minute. Drain the water and set aside. You can also choose to stir-fry the zucchini noodles for 1 to 2 minutes in olive oil if you don’t want to boil the noodles.
  • Place the cheddar cheese in a skillet already preheated. Allow the cheese to become crisp. Remove from heat when it becomes brown at the edges.
  • Place the boiled (or stir-fried) zucchini noodles inside a plate. Top it with the fried chicken and cheese crisps. Use the slices of tomato and chopped cilantro to garnish it.
  • Serve and enjoy your tasty lunch!
