  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Heat marinara sauce in a saucepan over low heat.

  • 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.

  • Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  • 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.

  • Spoon marinara sauce over each chicken breast and top with mozzarella cheese.

  • Broil chicken in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Transfer zucchini to each serving plate and add chicken. Spoon warm marinara over each piece of chicken and top with Parmesan cheese.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

A tasty healthy meal that couldn't be easier! I used Bertoli Organic Marinara because I had it on hand and the finished product was delicious. A perfect weekday meal well suited for a low-carb diet. This one's a keeper! Read More

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! Read More

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 ingredient. Read More

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 with a nice crusty bread. Read More

My husband made this dish for me - it was terrific!! (As we are newly married this is actually his first meal he's ever cooked for me):) I loved the spiral zucchini 'noodles'! Also the fresh mozzarella and sauce were perfect toppings for the chicken. A guilt-free healthy meal - this recipe is a winner in my book!......I think he's a keeper too;) Read More

I used only two zucchini (large) and 3 large chicken breasts because that's all I had. We had enough zucchini. I used Vodka sauce instead of marinara because my hubby doesn't like the marinara as much as he gets older. Will I make it again? Yes. What will I do differently? Less Italian seasoning on the zucchini which I'm happy to say I did not overcook. I think I will cut the breasts into 3rds before pounding them and pound them more. I didn't pound them enough. Seems like it took a lot longer than 20 minutes to prepare... Read More

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! Read More
