To start off our week in a healthy way, we sat down yesterday and came up with meals that would involve more proteins and vegetables and less carbs. I went to the grocery store and then we cooked up this scrumptious meal together. It's actually one that Jeff surprised me with not too long ago. I was working late one night, and when I came home, he had made this for me. I was so impressed with him! (I'm easily entertained okay. :) ) It fits in perfectly with our new dinner plans.
Easy Chicken Spaghetti
Garlic, diced fine
Onion, diced fine
Rotiserrie Chicken (we buy these pre-made at our local grocery store)
Zuchinni, sliced into ribbons
Squash, sliced into ribbons
The first step is to make your own sauce, using the first 8 ingredients. Improvise as you'd like adding seasonings and herbs to get the flavor you want. Next simply shred the chicken into pieces and add it to the pot with the sauce.
Using a potato peeler, shave the zuchinni and squash into ribbons. These will be your "spaghetti noodles." We used 2 zuchinnis and 3 squashes. Again, use what you like!
Saute the ribbons of veggies in olive oil until just tender.
