Chicken Scampi-ish over Zucchini Noodles

This evening, I made a quick and simple dinner -- my Chicken Scampi-ish.  I normally like to serve it on top of Rich & Thick Parmesan Cauliflower Mash.  This evening I decided to try it over zucchini noodles (made with my little Spirelli) instead.  While it turned out good...I must be honest, I still think it tastes best on top of the Parmesan Cauliflower Mash.  It has loads more flavor than the zucchini noodles.  I tossed the zucchini noodles with finely grated Parmesan cheese to flavor them a bit first...and while it was good -- the other is much more flavorful (in my opinion).  I love the simple, fresh flavors in the Chicken Scampi-ish.  I snapped a quick photo below for you to see. The link to the recipe is above.  Enjoy!

We've tried this with the Parmesan Cauliflower mash and we LOVE it with the cauliflower mash it's so GOOD!!! So I probably agree that I would like it better with the mash but this Chicken Scampi-ish is one of our favorites.

Only problem is my hubby (he's the cook) can never get the cauliflower dry enough, it's always a little soupy but it's still so good.

We even tried it with our left over chicken breasts from a Rotisserie Chicken, it came out great.

Thanks for all you wonderful recipes.

Best to you,

Thanks, Roye! With the cauliflower -- when you cook it, once it is tender and done...turn the heat up to high or medium-high and remove the lid of the pan and stir it around until there is no moisture left at all on the bottom of the pan -- almost dry but not yet scorching the cauliflower. See if that might help -- that is what I usually do because all of the chicken stock isn't gone, but is mostly gone by the time the cauliflower is. So glad you enjoy it! Thanks, again! :-)
