Perfect for two (or for one with delicious lunch leftovers) This gem stems from one of the first recipes I ever learned to make: a sour cream based cream sauce with chopped zucchini, served over pasta. In an attempt to make it lighter, this is what happened...

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sprinkle chicken liberally with all the seasoning, using paprika the most. Cayenne pepper is to your liking.
  2. Heat grill, or grill pan, to medium high heat.
  3. Grill chicken breast until done, about 5 minutes per side.
  4. Meanwhile, heat olive oil over medium heat in a large pan with lid. Add zucchini. Once zucchini cooks to al dente, drain excess water, then return to heat and add sour cream and lemon juice.
  5. Stir to coat "noodles.".
  6. Add Parmesan cheese to taste.
  7. Portion zucchini in the sauce into two low bowls and topped with sliced blackened chicken.
  8. Enjoy :).
