Creamy Crock Pot Chicken and Zucchini Noodles

One thing that has helped me lose weight and now maintain it, is swapping high calorie foods for healthier options and avoiding too many carbs. I’ve been replacing pasta with spaghetti squash but I recently found a new option: veggie noodles made with the Veggetti Spiral Vegetable Cutter! This simple tool works great and easily turns zucchini (and other veggies) into stringy noodles. Zucchini noodles made a great match up with this 4-ingredient creamy crock pot chicken!

Twist the zucchini in the grater and out come noodles! The very center seeds come out the other end in a little spiral. The ends of the zucchini look like the nub of a sharpened pencil. 

Ingredients:
– 4 chicken breasts
– 2 cans diced tomatoes (diced tomatoes with green chiles if you want to add a little kick)

– 1/2 cup fat free sour cream
– One 10oz can cream of chicken soup
– 4 zucchini

Directions:
1. Place chicken breasts on bottom of crock pot. Dump diced tomatoes and cream of chicken soup on top. Give it a little stir.
2. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 4-5. (I cooked mine on low for 8)
3. Stir in 1/2 cup sour cream. Sauce will thicken as it cools.

Place over zucchini noodles! You can boil your zucchini noodle for 6-8 minutes to make them tender or you can eat them raw. I tried both ways and preferred the raw noodles because they had a better texture. I thought the boiled noodles were a little too soggy.

This would be a great dish to make with fresh ingredients from your garden this summer. 
Happy Earth Day!

    I bought one of those from Bed Bath and Beyond and tried it with a carrot. Didn't work so well, so I took it back. Hmm, should have tried something softer?
    Been on a raw vegan diet for a month and feel FAB!! Saw some video of making zucchini noodles and they looked yummy. Maybe I'll give that thing another chance because the zucchini plants go into my garden soon!

    I just got another style veggie noodle makers. I have made some great zucchini noodle dishes. Even my carb loving husband was impressed. I just did a post on one of my dishes.
