Peanut Chicken Zucchini Noodle Bowls

Oh, HI Peanut Chicken Zucchini Noodle Bowls.

Peanut Chicken Zucchini Noodle Bowl

These bowls are super easy to make and perfect for those busy weeknights!  Might I add, they are insanely delicious and so so fresh.  The dressing can absolutely be prepped ahead of time and stored in the fridge until you’re ready to use. It’s okay if you sneak in a few spoonfuls, there is plenty and your secret is most def safe with me.

Alessandro approves of zucchini noodles, however, there is absolutely zero hesitation or gleam in his eye when I mix another kind of noodle in there.  This recipe didn’t originally call for flat rice noodles, however I added them to our bowls and it was beyond delish! I added it into the recipe as optional, so I’ll leave that up to you! You can get flat rice noodles at most grocery stores in the Asian/Vietnamese food section. It adds a nice crunch, I must say.





The rest of the ingredients in this bowl are as fresh as they come: sliced cucumber, avocado, jalapeño, peanuts, lime, and an incredible peanut vinaigrette that you may or may not want to eat by the spoonful.
