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

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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!

Just bought a spiralizer and so excited to start trying your recipes! Would you mind posting your recipe for your cauliflower rice with measurements and specific directions? I am new to this and can't wait to try it. It sounds amazing! Thanks!
Sorry -I only post up recipes that are spiralized on this blog! You can google Cauliflower Rice - there are so many great recipes out there.

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.
NB says:
Mama has become a vegetarian so this would be AWESOME for her!!! Love this thing!

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!!
annie says:
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.

THREE BEST WAYS TO COOK ZUCCHINI NOODLES 🍝 ⁣

we're a month into summer and the zucchinis are LARGE. 👏🏼 they grow like weeds this time of year and there's only so much zucchini bread, soup, and fritters you can make - time to spiralize them! if you're new to spiralizing and not sure the best way to approach cooking spiralized zucchini, here are my top 3 ways to cook zoodles 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼⁣

1️⃣ SAUTÉ -  this is my favorite way to enjoy zoodles. toss them over medium-high heat until al dente (with or without cooking oil.) the moment you notice them getting soggy, remove them from heat, drain into a colander, and pat dry. I recommend pouring a sauce on top instead of tossing with a sauce, to avoid extra wateriness. I LOVE a bolognese over zoodles.⁣

2️⃣ SIMMER - zucchini noodles don't get soggy in soups, they cook evenly and they are an easy way to add veggies into soups. just add them to the end of the cooking process (3 minutes is all you need to simmer until al dente.) think chicken "zoodle" soups and "zoodle" ramens! ⁣

3️⃣ RAW - you can eat zucchini raw! in the summertime, there's nothing better than a cold zoodle salad, and I love simple pesto zucchini noodles or you can try an Asian-inspired Thai dressing like a peanut sauce.⁣

do these veggies make my belly look big? 😛🤰🏻 🧅🥒🍅 be honest! #29weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #29weekspregnant ...

I'll admit, it's been a minute since I posted a spiralized zucchini meal on here, so I'm throwing it back (and bringing it back!) with this MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN with SPIRALIZED VEGETABLES 🍅, originally made for the blog by my friend @skinnytaste! 🙏🏼⁣

I love the simplicity of this zoodle dish, it's one of those "what the heck am I going to make for dinner tonight?!" 🤔 kind of meals. you can bulk this up with some grains or some grilled potatoes, too!⁣

search the blog for the recipe! 🖥️⁣
