Chicken and pesto zoodles

Chicken and pesto zoodles
Siobhan Berry, owner of, shares Chicken and Pesto Zoodles that are sure to be a winner with your little ones!
Courgette pasta, zuchinni noodles or zoodles - whatever you like to call them - are a great way of getting that little bit of added veg into the kids! By serving it with pesto (which they love) it masks the green of the courgette which may mean they are more likely to accept it.

4 chicken breasts
4 courgettes, spiralised
Mummycooks Pesto
Handful of sun blushed tomatoes
Parmesan to serve
Olive oil

Cut the chicken into small chunks and fry off in a little olive oil.

When the chicken is almost finished, heat another pan with some olive oil and sauté the courgettes for 4-6 minutes until cooked to your liking.

Stir in one spoonful of pesto into the pan with the chicken, add the remaining pesto to the pan with the courgettes, and stir until all of them are covered in the pesto.

Plate up and serve with some grated Parmesan and sun blushed tomatoes.
