One night, I made one of my go-to healthy weeknight spiralized meals. Then, I posted a picture on Instagram (obviously.) It got so many likes (515!) that I knew I had to share it with you all – how selfish of me not to!

What does “go to healthy weeknight meals” mean? Well, when I’m in a rush or I’m not planning on testing out a recipe for the blog on Lu for dinner, I have my “go-tos” that I don’t have to think about and always have ingredients for.

For example, cauliflower rice, salmon and a veg. I always have cauliflower rice, I always have salmon in the freezer and I obviously always have some sort of other vegetable in the fridge.

My cauliflower rice is da bomb, it really is. I sautee garlic, red onion, cauliflower and red pepper flakes together, add chicken broth, then the cauliflower rice, cumin, oregano, salt, pepper and more chicken broth. I cook it for a mere 5-10 minutes and then serve it alongside my salmon. Deeeelicious!

But, this blog post isn’t about cauliflower rice. This blog is only reserved for spiralized recipes. Obviously, I always have zucchinis in the refrigerator. The day I don’t have zucchinis is the day you’ll need to check my pulse.

Whenever I know it’s going to be a crazy week, I’ll buy bok choy and corn for this “go-to” meal. I hate to admit it, but I used a canned teriyaki sauce. Annie Chun’s is the best. Most importantly, it’s quick.

This meal is so flavorful, for minimal effort. I love the warmth of the garlic broth combined with the softness of the bok choy and the sweetness of the teriyaki sauce. It’s a home-run.

Speaking of bok choy, in the recipe it says to “remove tough bottoms” – this is what I mean:

Lu loves this dish. He always says, “Why isn’t this in a restaurant? Everyone would order it!” Well, honey, technically you’re in the greatest restaurant in the world: The Inspiralized Kitchen!

Teriyaki Chicken, Bok Choy and Corn Zucchini Noodles

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time25 mins
Servings: 2


  • 3/4 cup cubed chicken breast
  • 2-3 tbsp favorite teriyaki sauce I use Annie Chun's
  • 1 ear of corn
  • 1 large garlic clove minced
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • 2 bunches of baby bok choy bottom tough stems remove
  • 1 tsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 medium zucchinis Blade C


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place your chicken on a baking tray and pour over with teriyaki sauce. Mix together so that the chicken is covered. Let marinade while oven preheats. Once oven preheats, bake for 15-17 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  • While the chicken is marinading, cover your corn with water in a medium saucepan. Lightly salt the water and cover, bringing to a boil. Cook for another 2 minutes once boiled and then set aside to strain in a colander.
  • Place a large skillet over medium heat and coat with cooking spray. Once the skillet warms, add in the garlic and red pepper flakes. Let cook for 30 seconds and then add in the bok choy. Toss to combine and let cook for about 2 minutes or until bok choy begins to wilt. Then, shave off the kernels of the corn with a knife into the skillet. Then, add in the soy sauce and chicken broth.
  • Let reduce for about 3-5 minutes or until most of the liquid is gone. Then, add in the zucchini noodles. Toss to combine and let cook for 2-3 minutes, tossing frequently, or until noodles have softened to your preference. Remove from heat, place in the cooked chicken, toss to combine and then divide into bowls. Enjoy!

I'm stocking up on zucchini so I can whip up a fab dinner using the Spiralizer.
Vivian says:
Spiralizer arrived last week and I have been having a great time! Imagining all kinds of thingss to use it for...not all vegetarian...Spam perhaps? The shapes could be so interesting in so many applications...the density and texture must just mimic vegetables. In the meantime, I am planting lots of zucchini plants in the garden this year! Thanks for your diligence and creativity.

Where did you get the s & p shakers?! Totally adorable I love elephants!! Oh and the recipe looks awesome too!
Thank you - just at Pier 1!!

Looks good. But what closed the deal is the comment about Lu. Experience tells me if a husband says "this should be in a restaurant", it must be pretty darn good. Will make it in the next couple weeks when I feel the holiday bloat creeping up. Enjoy your first Christmas as husband and wife!!
Meg says:
Its says "Serves 1"... that cannot be right, can it?

Looks delicious, except corn is a grain, so a no go.

What do you think about replacing corn with mushrooms and red bell peppers? These recipes look great but I'm trying to watch my carbs. This is my reason for even exploring spiraled veggies.

VEGETARIAN ZUCCHINI & QUINOA LASAGNA, a fan favorite 👏🏼😍 the zucchini cooks to just al dente for a real lasagna-like texture and the quinoa gives this vegetarian dish a burst of protein and texture. I love making this during the summertime with fresh zucchinis and basil, but it’s amazing year round ☀️ grab the recipe up on the blog! ⁣

the crib to bed and the nap to quiet time transitions all happened within a month or so of each other for us and today on the blog, I’m sharing all about how we got through them smoothly-ish 🤪 also, as just a general thought, all of these baby and toddler transitions tend to be “easier” than we hype them up to be. I think the anxiety of the unknown makes them scarier than they are! anyway, you can check the post out on the blog today for all the details! it’s a quick but to-the-point post ✌🏼 ⁣

and not to contradict myself 🙈, but I need all the tips for putting toddlers together in the same room, which I’m going to have to do soon, so we can start preparing the twins’ nursery (we’re planning on moving Luca into Roma’s room and using Luca’s room for the twins, because it’s larger.) moms/dads who have done it - what’s the secret?! 🤔⁣
