Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 3


  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 teaspoons taco seasoning
  • 4 1/2 cups spiralized zucchini noodles 
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt 
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Spray a large skillet with cooking spray. Heat the skillet to medium-high heat and add the diced chicken breast. Season with taco seasoning. Cook until the chicken is lightly browned and cooked through. Once cooked through, transfer the chicken to a separate dish and set aside.

Sprinkle in the chopped cilantro and add the lime juice. Remove from heat and toss to combine. Season with garlic salt and black pepper. 
  3. Divide into three equal portions. Add 1 1/2 ounces of diced avocado to each serving.
