Ingredients
  • 1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, cut 1/2-inch cubes

  • kosher salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped

  • 3/4 lb grape tomatoes, cut in half

  • pinch red crushed pepper flakes

  • Kosher Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh basil

  • 1 large zucchini, spiralized with Blade D

  • 2 oz fresh mini mozzarella balls, cut in half

Directions
  1. Start by spriralizing the zucchini using blade D if you have the Inspiralizer, or the thickest noodle blade your spiralizer has.

  2. Season the chicken with 1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper and oregano. In a large non-stick pan set over med-high heat, heat 1/2 tablespoon of the oil. Add the chicken and cook, stirring until browned and cooked through, about 6 minutes. Set aside.

  3. Reduce heat to medium, add the remaining oil and garlic and cook until golden, 30 seconds. Add the tomatoes, and crushed red pepper flakes, and season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and black pepper. Reduce the heat to low. Simmer, covered, until the tomatoes soften, 15 minutes.

  4. Increase heat to high, stir in the zucchini and basil, season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook 2 minutes. Add the chicken back to the skillet along with the mozzarella and serve right away.

The recipe is great but the nutrition info has something wrong in it. There is only 7 grams carb in this recipe per serving. The zucchini has only 4 grams and the grape tomatoes has 3 so that adds up to 7 and no where near 15 grams as stated. I have no idea where these people get their nutrition information I use the USDA NDB and the database is readily available and free so I don't understand why diabetic connect can't do the same.
