1# chicken breasts
( You could easily substitute fish or shrimp.)
2 large zucchini
7oz jar of roasted red peppers
1 tsp red pepper flakes
2 cloves garlic
(You could use roasted garlic if you don’t like the strong flavor of fresh garlic.)
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
Cook your chicken however you like. (I prefer it grilled, but when it is below zero outside, I usually just bake it or pan-fry it in a little EVOO.)
Make yourself some “zoodles” with your zucchini while your chicken is cooking. I just love my spiralizer! It makes this task so very simple. If you don’t own one, get one here!
Place the roasted peppers (juice included), garlic, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper in your food processor. Combine until a chunky sauce is formed.
Cook your zoodles in a little EVOO for 3-4 minutes. Add your red pepper sauce and toss to combine flavors.
A few reasons you should eat more garlic:
1. It gives your immune system a boost!
2. It is full of antioxidants.
3. Garlic helps control blood pressure and cholesterol.
4. It beats inflammation!
The best way to enjoy garlic’s health benefits is to eat it raw, or close to raw. A temperature above 140F destroys the allicin in garlic. If you wish to add it to a meal, try to add it at the very end of the cooking process after you’ve removed the dish from the source of heat.
