This low carb recipe for this quick zucchini, chicken and bacon dinner. It’s a great meal for busy weeknights!
With the holidays here, I’m finding that I need to have my meals planned and prepped if I’m going to avoid carbs and sugar and not completely fall off the low carb wagon. This quick low carb zucchini, chicken and bacon dish is simple and fast and tastes great for a weeknight meal. The whole family loves it!
Having the chicken cooked ahead of time saves dinner multiple times a week. I kind of love chicken breast, so I eat it a ton.
How to meal prep chicken breast in the Instant Pot or in the slow cooker!
To avoid getting watery zucchini, it helps to lightly steam it before cooking and then letting the extra water drain for a few minutes. This is totally extra, but makes a difference!
Sautéing all the ingredients together take just 10 minutes and dinner is on the table in under 30 minutes!
