I love one pan meals. Who doesn’t? A one pan meal is exactly what it sounds like: a meal that can be made using just one pan.
Easy clean up, less time spent in the kitchen and more time doing what we all love: eating.
When I teased this recipe on Instagram, I got so many requests to post the recipe, so here we are: starting the week off right!
This weekend, I spent most of Saturday with my niece and my brother-in-law. We went to brunch, then walked around the water a bit, and then Gabriella (our niece) came over to take a nap. We used the nursery for the first time, haha!
There aren’t many babies on my side of the family, so I’ve never had any “baby training.” I remember when Gabriella was first born (she’s 2 years old now), I had no idea what to do/how to hold her and was always nervous. It’s funny how we’re so nervous around babies and then you realize how resilient they are, you feel silly for being so nervous!
And I’m sure, from what everyone tells me, one pan meals are going to become very important when we have a baby – easy, quick, and no clean up.
This dish is perfectly salty – the zucchini noodles and artichokes absorb the saltiness from the feta and kalamata olives and balance everything out.
The chicken is rubbed with simple spices (paprika, garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper) and baked, for a healthy, easy dinner that saves well in the refrigerator for leftovers.
Hope everyone has a great Sunday! I’m spending this one working, but it’s all for some very exciting projects upcoming!

Lemon-Herb Chicken and Roasted Artichoke Zucchini Pasta with Feta
15 minPrep Time
30 minCook Time
45 minTotal Time
1 boneless and skinless chicken breast
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil + more to drizzle
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon oregano
¼ teaspoon parsley
salt and pepper
2-3 lemon slices
½ cup canned artichokes, drained, patted dry
1/4 cup pitted Kalamata olives
1 medium zucchinis
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Place the chicken in a baking dish and rub with the olive oil. Season both sides with paprika, garlic powder, oregano, parsley, and salt and pepper. Lay the lemon slice on top of the chicken breast. On the other side of the baking dish, place in the artichokes and olives and drizzle with olive oil. Season with pepper. Bake the mixture for 20-30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.
Meanwhile, spiralize the zucchinis. 15 minutes after the chicken mixture has been cooking, add in the zucchini noodles, nestling in between the chicken, artichokes, and olives. Drizzle with more olive oil, if moisture is needed. Let cook for the remaining 10-15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.
Remove the baking dish from the oven. Place the chicken breast on a cutting board and slice into strips.
Sprinkle the feta into the zucchini mixture in the baking dish and toss well to combine. Divide the vegetable mixture onto plates and top with the chicken. Serve.

when @lightlifefoods challenged me to take a #CleanBreak from an unhealthy habit, I immediately thought of food waste. this is something I talk about all the time with you guys, and I'm constantly working on ways to reduce my food waste. ♻️🗑️️ #LightLifePartner
one of the ways we can reduce food waste is by keeping our fridge and freezers organized so that we can easily take inventory of what we have stocked so that we a) don't overbuy, b) don't let produce perish, and c) know what to buy to help us use up what we already have. 🙏🏼
that's why I've taken this #CleanBreak challenge with @lightlifefoods to organize my fridge and freezer and in the name of transparency and keeping it real, swipe to see my fridge and freezer before and after. #dontjudge, okay?!
for example, I had peppers and onions in the fridge that were almost too squishy and was going to throw them away and order takeout, but after organizing, I saw I had a package of @lightlifefoods Plant Based Italian Sausage and a pizza crust in the freezer, so I made a sausage, pepper, and onion pizza for dinner! and just like that, instead of buying extra groceries to make a meal, I used what I had on hand, because I could actually see what I had! 🍕
tell me... what do you need to make a #CleanBreak from? social media? toxic relationships? join me and head over to @lightlifefoods to share your own #CleanBreak and get honest advice from @lilly!
