Teriyaki Chicken with Zoodles

1 1/2 pounds of Chicken Breast
   or thigh meat, cut into bite size
   pieces
Teriyaki sauce
1 Red Bell Pepper, sliced
1 Green Bell Pepper, sliced
1 Onion, peeled and sliced

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a 13x9 inch pan, add chicken to the pan, and surround with sliced vegetables.
  • Pour Teriyaki sauce over the top. Place in oven and bake for 40 minutes.


Zoodles
2 Medium Zucchini
1 Red Bell Pepper, halved and seeded
2 tsp Salt - for wilting zucchini
1/2 c. Smooth Peanut Butter
1 Tbsp. Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp. Honey
4 Tbsp. White Wine
1 tsp. Rice Vinegar
1″ Ginger Root, finely minced
1 tsp. garlic, minced

  • With your mandoline, and/or spiralizer vegetable noodle maker slice zucchinis and red bell peppers into thin noodles.  
  • Places ribbons of zucchini and pepper into a mesh strainer over a bowl. Sprinkle with 2 teaspoons of salt. And place in the fridge. This will help extract additional moisture from the "noodles".
  • While the "noodles" are wilting (so to speak), whisk together the remaining (peanut butter, soy sauce, honey, etc.) ingredients together in a bowl to create the peanut sauce.
  • When the 30 minutes are up, remove the "noodles" from the fridge. Rinse the salt from the noodles with cold water and pat dry with a towel. 
  • Pour the noodles onto a flat pan sprayed with Pam and then pour the peanut sauce over the noodles.  
  • Cook for 20 - 30 minutes in a 350 oven.

NOTE:  I usually end up making the Teriyaki Chicken the day before, then heating it up to serve with the warm noodles the next day.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
