Cuisine: Italian

kcal: Approximately 350 kcal per serving


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach
  • 4 medium zucchinis, spiralized into zoodles
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • Optional: Crushed red pepper flakes for a hint of heat
  • Fresh basil leaves for garnish


  1. Season the chicken breasts with salt and black pepper on both sides.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  3. Add the seasoned chicken breasts to the skillet and cook for 5-6 minutes per side, or until they are cooked through and have a golden-brown color. Once cooked, transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside.
  4. In the same skillet, add the minced garlic and cook for about 30 seconds, or until fragrant.
  5. Pour in the chicken broth, scraping the bottom of the skillet to deglaze it and incorporate the browned bits.
  6. Lower the heat to medium and add the heavy cream to the skillet, stirring to combine with the chicken broth.
  7. Stir in the grated Parmesan cheese until it melts and the sauce becomes creamy.
  8. Add the chopped sun-dried tomatoes and fresh baby spinach to the sauce. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the spinach wilts and the tomatoes are softened.
  9. Add the spiralized zucchini noodles to the skillet and toss them with the creamy sauce. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to warm the zoodles.
  10. Sprinkle in the dried oregano and dried basil, and season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  11. Optional: For a hint of heat, add crushed red pepper flakes to the dish.
  12. Slice the cooked chicken breasts into thin strips and place them back into the skillet with the zoodles and creamy sauce. Gently toss everything together to combine.
  13. Once all the ingredients are well combined and heated through, remove the skillet from the heat.
  14. Garnish the Creamy Tuscan Chicken & Zoodles with fresh basil leaves for a burst of flavor and freshness.

Note: If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can find pre-made zoodles in the produce section of most grocery stores.
