Spiralized Zucchini Chow Mein with Chicken


  • ¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 red bell pepper, julienned
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, julienned
  • 5 zucchinis, spiralized using the 3mm blade and trimmed into 1-inch lengths
  • 1 carrot, spiralized using the 3mm blade and trimmed into 1-inch lengths
  • ½ teaspoon sesame seeds, or to taste


For best results, we recommend using:


  1. Stir soy sauce, arrowroot, garlic, ginger, agave nectar, and sesame oil together in a bowl.
  2. Season chicken breast with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Sauté chicken in hot oil until golden brown, about 8 minutes; remove with a slotted spoon to a plate.
  4. Heat remaining oil in the skillet; sauté red bell pepper and yellow bell pepper in hot oil until softened, about 3 minutes. Return chicken to skillet and cook to reheat chicken, about 1 minute.
  5. Stir zucchini and carrot with the chicken mixture. Pour sauce into the skillet and gently toss to coat chicken and vegetables in sauce; cook until zucchini is tender, about 2 minutes.
  6. Remove pan from heat. Divide chicken chow mein into bowls; garnish with sesame seeds to serve.
Mealthy tip:

Vegetarian? Omit chicken and add tofu.

So delicious! Much better than I expected, being that it uses spiraled veggies. The carrot was a little awkward to spiraling, but I made it work. This is a new favorite, I'm so glad I tried it out.

I tried this healthy spin on chicken chow mien and it was so delicious. I especially loved all the bell peppers mixed in. This is the perfect dinner and makes generous portions for two people.

Really good chow mein with or without chicken. Sometimes I use steak. I really like this recipe because of the spiralized zucchinis. I don't even eat take out anymore!

Thought this recipe was much better with chicken thighs, instead of breasts. The sauce was really delicious, but I used honey instead of agave and added extra soy sauce. This is great for those days when you want Chinese food but not all the carbs.

I made this with chicken thighs instead. Really good recipe! I also used diced bell peppers instead of strips. I love getting takeout but its not always the healthiest option. I also added green onion on top for garnish.
