THE SESAME SAUCE
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup sesame oil
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon honey (omit for Whole30)
1 tablespoon garlic chili sauce
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
THE ZOODLES + Noodles
4 chicken breasts, cubed
4 medium zucchinis
2 teaspoon sesame oil, divided
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
First, mix all the sesame sauce ingredients together. Place the chicken breasts in a bowl and pour 1/2 cup of the sauce over the top. Allow the chicken to set aside and marinate while you spiralize the zucchini.
Next, heat 1 teaspoon of sesame oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and all the marinade to the pan. Cook, occasionally scraping the brown bits off the bottom of the pan, until the chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes.
Last, combine the remaining teaspoon of sesame oil, the zucchini noodles and sauce to the pan. Continue cooking until the noodles are soft, about 5 minutes.
