  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place zucchini spirals in a colander and sprinkle 1 teaspoon salt and Italian seasoning over zucchini; toss to coat. Set colander over a bowl to allow water from zucchini to drain.
  3. Wrap chicken in plastic wrap and place on a work surface; pound into 1/4- to 1/2-inch thickness. Remove plastic wrap and season chicken with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat marinara sauce in a saucepan over low heat.
  5. Coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Cook chicken in the hot skillet until browned and no longer pink in the center, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  7. Place zucchini in the same nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir until tender yet firm to the bite, 3 to 4 minutes.
  8. Spoon marinara sauce over each chicken breast and top with mozzarella cheese.
  9. Broil chicken in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, 1 to 2 minutes.
  10. Transfer zucchini to each serving plate and add chicken. Spoon warm marinara over each piece of chicken and top with Parmesan cheese.

I often wonder how something so simple can be so flavorful. I used the "Best Marinara Sauce Yet" recipe from this site that I make and keep on hand. Perfect!

This one is a keeper. Quick for a weeknight meal. And, oh so good left over!! I only had small fresh mozz balls at home, and this worked well in the recipe. I think I will stick to this ingredie...

Yum! I left out the salt and added spirals of carrots (I needed to use it up) and minced garlic. Otherwise prepared as written. I liked this better than conventional chicken parmesan. Serve w...

We have lots of garden zucchini in the summer and we tired of having grilled, baked, and fried. This is different way to use it that our whole family loves!

This recipe was easy, healthy and yummy. Will definitely make again.
