How to make parmesan chicken with 'pasta' #healthyeating


I've read a few times about using ribbons of courgette (zucchini) as an alternative to pasta for a healthier meal so decided to give it a go and here are the results!

Start by frying one rasher of bacon and about four chopped mushrooms per person in a little olive or rapeseed oil

Once brown remove from the pan and put to one side

Take one chicken breast per person and bang it flat. Dip in some beaten egg (or egg white) and sprinkle with Parmesan and salt and pepper

Fry in the pan turning occasionally until cooked through. Depending on the thickness it'll take about 5 mins on each side

In the meantime use a vegetable peeler to create ribbons of courgettes. You'll need one courgette per person

Boil these in salted water for two minutes and drain

Leave the water to drain off. This will be your 'pasta'

Once the chicken is done remove it from the pan and put it to one side to rest

Put the mushrooms and bacon back in the pan along with a crushed clove of garlic and the zest of a lemon

Add a tablespoon of low fat cream cheese. I used Philadelphia, add a teaspoon of Dijon mustard (or wholegrain) and stir well

Add a handful of shredded spinach and a little parmeaan

Stir in the courgettes with a little lemon juice and serve immediately. Don't cook the courgettes for too long as they will get too soft.

Serve the chicken on top of the 'pasta' with a little more Parmesan grated over. Yum!
