ZUCCHINI NOODLES WITH PEANUT DRESSING
It's always exciting when you can dig into your favorite dish and enjoy it without any guilt. And that's just what our Zucchini Noodles with Peanut Dressing serves up. Chef Lisa takes noodles to the next level by swapping the usual carb-laden option for spiralized zucchini, adding deli-roasted chicken breast, crunchy peanuts, spicy Sriracha and fresh cucumbers, and tossing it all in a creamy Peanut Dressing. This twist on the classic and tasty Thai dish will have you deleting that neighbourhood takeout spot from your speed dial in no time!
