Cook Time:




  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 500g Diced Chicken
  • 4 medium zucchinis, spiralised into zoodles
  • ½ onion, finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup The Little Bone Broth Company Chicken Bone Broth
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 1/4 cup pesto
  • 1/4 cup parmesan, grated
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh basil, for topping
Cooking Instructions
  1. Prepare Zoodles: Wash the zucchinis and spiralise them into zoodles. Set aside for later use.

  2. Cook the Chicken: Season chicken pieces with salt and pepper. In a large frying pan, heat coconut oil over high heat. Add chicken and cook for about 5 minutes until browned on all sides. Transfer to a plate, cover, and set aside.

  3. Sauté Onion and Garlic: In the same pan, reduce heat to medium. Add onions and cook until translucent. Add garlic and cook for another minute until fragrant.

  4. Simmer Sauce: Add chicken bone broth, cream, and pesto to the pan. Reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer. Allow the sauce to reduce for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  5. Combine Chicken and Sauce: Return the chicken to the pan. Simmer for 5-7 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked through.

  6. Add Final Touches: Stir in Parmesan and cherry tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook for an additional 2 minutes.

  7. Cook Zoodles: While the chicken is finishing, heat a separate pan over medium heat. Add a splash of water or a drizzle of olive oil, then add the zoodles. Cook for 2-3 minutes until just tender. Avoid overcooking to keep them from becoming soggy.

  8. Garnish and Serve: Remove the chicken mixture from the heat and garnish with freshly chopped basil. Serve the creamy pesto chicken over a bed of zoodles for a delightful and nutritious meal.

Enjoy this Creamy Pesto Chicken with Zoodles, a dish that pairs the rich, comforting flavours of pesto and Parmesan with the lightness of spiralised zucchini noodles.
