Zoodles! Spiralized zucchini with chicken cooked in a sofrito sauce. There’s something so delicious about spiralized zucchini. This recipe is very easy to prepare and cook. All under 30 minutes!

A little secret to speeding up the process is using leftover chicken. I had leftovers of a rotisserie chicken and had decided to use that. That’s how this whole recipe came about!
