Teriyaki Chicken Zucchini Noodles

The easiest 10-minute HEALTHY and LOW-CARB Asian zucchini noodles with a homemade teriyaki sauce made from scratch.

On my way home from NY to LA, I decided to stop by New Orleans.

It hasn’t been a cute trip.

All I’ve been eating is beignets.

That’s all I’ve been doing.

Because Cafe Du Monde is open 24 hours.

It’s dangerous territory, guys.

But fortunately, I am heading home to Los Angeles today.

I’d be eating 37 more beignets in a 12-hour period.

So I’m just going to stay home and stick to this strict zucchini noodle diet.

Teriyaki Chicken Zucchini Noodles

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 1 hour

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes

The easiest 10-minute HEALTHY and LOW-CARB Asian zucchini noodles with a homemade teriyaki sauce made from scratch.


  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds (4 medium-sized) zucchini, spiralized
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and 1/4 cup water; set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, add soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, honey and 1 cup water; bring to a simmer. Stir in cornstarch mixture until thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 2 minutes; let cool to room temperature. Reserve 1/4 cup and set aside.
  3. In a gallon size Ziploc bag or large bowl, combine soy sauce mixture and chicken; marinate for at least 30 minutes to overnight, turning the bag occasionally. Drain the chicken from the marinade.
  4. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 3-4 minutes.
  5. Stir in zucchini noodles and 1/4 cup reserved soy sauce mixture until well combined, about 2 minutes.
  6. Serve immediately, garnished with sesame seeds, if desired.

I’ve recently bought a spiralizer so I can’t wait to make this!

Yay! It’s the best investment ever!

Any recommendation on a spiralizer that works well?

I used this spiralizer from veggiespize.

Any recommendations on spiralizers? Thanks!

Any recommendations on a brand/model of spiralizer?

This looks yummy. What did you use to get the zucchini to look like that? What
kind of spiralizer? thanks.

What kind of spiralizer did you use to make thicker spirals??

I used this spiralizer from veggiespize.

Unfortunately, corn starch, brown sugar and honey means it is not low carb!

I agree and would love if she would put the nutritional values
with her recipes.

The nutrition facts are right there under the recipe. 9g carbs.

If I don’t have fresh ginger, can I substitute dry? If so, about how much? Thanks! Love your recipes!

Yes, of course! The ratio for dry to fresh spices is typically 1:3. Hope that helps!

I have a spiralizer. It is a little hand held variety. But how did you get the nice ribbons shown in the recipe? We are on the lookout for low carb meals. This recipe looks great and the ribbons are very attractive. Thanks.

I recently purchased the spiralizer’s for my Kitchenaid stand up mixer. My goodness how fast it works…truly love it.

Trying to loose weight. Can’t wait to try this out!

Veggiespize purchased! I can’t wait to add this to our low carb regimen — and colorful too. 🙂

Would there be any way to adapt the recipe if you do not have a spiralizer?

Jessica, it is best (and easiest!) to use a spiralizer to create zucchini noodles.

This recipe is great… I use a vegetable peeler and make ribbons very much like yours but they are flat

so, i love how practically every recipe comment i read is “so excited to try this” and the person who posts said recipe feels compelled to answer “thank you” to each and everyone when no one actually tried it!
Common sense seems to dictate that the comment section is for: how easy, tasty, soggy, or perfect each recipe is…you know useful to folks like me actually interested in the recipe and not desperate to take part in a comment section adding no value. That being said heres my useless comment about the recipe that looks delicious. Sorry if i sound…Jaded. Its just irritating.

This recipe was delicious! I really appreciated it.
