Zucchini Noodles with Chicken and Tomatoes in a Lemon Garlic Sauce


I am just loving my spiralizer attachment from KitchenAid®, and it's been super busy in my kitchen! If you don't have the attachment, there are other ways to spiralize, including using a vegetable peeler. This recipe was inspired by leftovers. Before serving, top this dish with your favorite chopped fresh herbs! I love roasting 2 chickens at once and serving them for dinner one night, then cutting the rest up and using for several different meals. I freeze what I won't use in the next 2 days. I also keep a little packed away for Jake! Love my doggie...

If your zucchini noodles are very long, cut them in half before cooking to make them easier to eat.
