Chicken Zoodle “Lo Mein” For Two

A lighter Lo Mein using zucchini noodles in place of pasta – under 300 calories!

This faux lo mein dish is made with zoodles (zucchini noodles) in place of noodles and the results are DELISH (and bonus under 300 calories)! Each bowl is loaded with chicken and vegetables in a savory sauce. If you want to make this meatless, tofu would also be great in this dish. Start to finish this takes about 20 minutes to make… quicker than waiting for your take-out to get delivered!

To make the zoodles you can use a vegetable spiralizer such as the Paderno Spiral Vegetable Slicer or a mandolin fitted with a julienne blade although the spiralizer is so much easier and safer.

Since zucchini releases a lot of water as it cooks, I use it to my advantage and purposely leave the sauce a little thick. Once the noodles cook and release their liquid (I only cook them 2 minutes TOPS) the liquid from the zucchini thins the sauce and it comes out perfect.
