Chicken + Pasta (Less than 400 calories!)

This is one of my all time favorite meals. It's super quick, super easy, and super filling. When you're trying to eat healthy, a lot of the time you hear about "no-carb" diets, but a world without pasta is just not a world that I'm interested in living in. (And don't get me started on zoodles!!!!)'

This dinner takes 30 minutes and can be modified however you like! It also makes amaaaazing leftovers.

What you'll need:

2 chicken breasts
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 small zucchini
cherry tomatoes
whole-grain pasta
seasoning of your choice (I used Italian seasoning)


Season your chicken and then slice it into cubes. Cook over a medium-high heat until no longer pink. Remove from heat and set aside.



While your chicken is cooking, bring water to a boil and slice your zucchini and tomatoes. Once the chicken is done, begin to cook your zucchini on a medium-low heat. Once the zucchini is a little browned, add olive oil and tomatoes.




























When your pasta is almost done, and the tomatoes are sautéing nicely in the pan, add the chicken to the zucchini and tomatoes. Add more olive oil if necessary.


Scoop out some of the pasta water and set aside. Drain the pasta and mix it all together. If it looks a little dry, add a little of the water to help. Finish off with a little more olive oil and voila! 


A delicious and healthy dinner that doesn't sacrifice any of the good things life has to offer (carbs).
