  • ⅓ cup almonds
  • 1 - 10 oz chicken breast
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 fresh lemon
  • 2 zucchinis
  • 2 carrots
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic salt
  • pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Begin by pounding the chicken breasts to an even thickness, then season them with salt and pepper.
  3. In a shallow dish, place the finely chopped almonds.

Cooking Instructions

  1. While the chicken is baking, prepare the lemon zucchini noodles. Using a spiralizer or a vegetable peeler, create long, thin strips of zucchini noodles.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add minced garlic and sauté for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant.
  3. Add the zucchini noodles to the skillet and toss with the garlic-infused olive oil. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until the noodles are just tender but still have a slight crunch.
  4. Squeeze the juice of half a lemon over the zucchini noodles and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
