Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup Plain Non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 3 Tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice + additional for drizzling
  • 2 tsp Honey
  • 3/4 tsp Chia Seeds
  • 1 tsp Olive Oil + additional for drizzling
  • 3/4 tsp Garlic minced
  • Salt/Pepper
  • 8 Oz Chicken breast
  • 2 Large Zucchinis or 3 medium
  • 1/3 Cup Reduced-fat Feta cheese
  • Minced Parsley for garnish

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt, 3 Tbsp of lemon juice, honey, Chia seeds, 1 tsp Olive Oil, garlic and a pinch of salt and pepper. Place the chicken into the bowl and spoon the mixture over-top so it is well covered. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  2. Once the chicken has marinated, heat you oven to 350 degree and pour the chicken, along with the yogurt mixture into a small baking dish. Bake until the chicken is no longer pink throughout, about 25-30 minutes. Cover and set aside for 5 minutes to let the meat rest.
  3. While the chicken cooks, spiralize the zucchini noodles using the 3mm blade of your spiralzer (you can also use a mandolin if you don’t have a spiralzer.) Place the noodles into a strainer and set over top of a medium bowl. Lightly sprinkle the zucchini noodles with salt and let strain for 30 minutes to release the water, stirring around every so often.
  4. To assemble:
  5. Squeeze out as much remaining liquid from the zucchini noodles as you can and place into a bowl. Drizzle with a little bit of olive oil and squeeze of fresh lime juice. Toss to evenly coat and divide between two plates.
  6. Place the chicken on top of the zucchini noodles and whisk the sauce until it begins to come together (it will be a little clumpy) divide the sauce over top of each plate.
  7. Sprinkle with feta cheese, parsley and DEVOUR.
