Cilantro Lime Chicken with Zucchini Noodles

Main Dishes

Looking to a wonderful light dish for those warmer weather days? This is the meal to answer all your questions. The lime, cilantro, spicy Mexican taste adds a lot of pizzazz to the chicken along with zucchini “pasta” that just makes your mouth water. The zucchini provides a perfect substitution to pasta noodles with a very low amount of carbohydrates and you don’t even realize that it’s not pasta! This is quite possibly one of my favorite main dishes for dinner.
