Zucchini "Pasta" with Basil Chicken
- 3 medium zucchini
- 1 extra large or 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
- 2 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
- 14 manzanilla olives, sliced in half
- 2 oz fat free feta
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- salt and pepper
- 2 tbsp dried basil
- cooking spray
Slice the zucchini with a spiral slicer or julienne peeler into long, thin strips, avoiding the seeds. (Save the inner part with seeds for another zucchini salad.) Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Salt the water. Add the zucchini and boil for approximately 5 to 6 minutes. Drain.
Meanwhile, preheat saute pan to medium high heat. Spray with cooking spray. Coat chicken lightly with salt, pepper and dried basil. Cook chicken in saute pan until cooked through. Slice into strips.
Add tomatoes, basil, olives, feta, olive oil, salt and pepper to a large bowl. Add warm zucchini. Toss.
Plate the zucchini pasta onto two plates. Top with chicken and serve.
