We love a good plate of eggs and bacon but sometimes breakfast can get boring – which is why when we tasted this Breakfast Zoodle Bowl, we knew it would be on our breakfast rotation list for a long time. It’s grain free, dairy-free (optional), Whole30 approved and is the perfect way to get a full serving of vegetables + a bit of bone broth into your morning routine. Enjoy!
6-8 large zucchinis
2 tablespoons ghee or avocado oil
1 1/2 pounds organic boneless, skinless chicken thighs- cubed
1/4 cup bone broth
1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, cubed and roasted
6 garlic cloves
2 large avocados halved and pitted
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup Whole30 Approved Mayonnaise
sea salt and black pepper to taste
pickled onions, for topping
fresh herbs, for topping
toasted pumpkin seeds, for topping
soft boiled eggs, for topping
Make the avocado sauce.Add garlic into food processor and process until minced. Add the rest of the aioli ingredients and process until smooth, scraping down the bowl as needed. Add sea salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside.
Spiralize the zucchini first. I like to use the “C” blade on the Inspiralizer. Feel free to spiralize it as thick or as thin as you’d like! Add the spiralized zucchini to a large colander and place it over the sink. Add a few teaspoons of kosher salt and massage it well into the zucchini. Let it sit for about 20 minutes, as this process will release a lot of moisture. Rinse the zucchini well with cold water and let it drain for another 10-15 minutes. Pat it as dry as you can with a kitchen towel and set aside.
Season cubed chicken liberally with salt and pepper. Add ghee to a large frying pan on medium high heat. Once the pan is hot and the ghee has melted, add the cubed chicken. Saute on medium high until cooked through. Remove with a slotted spoon and discard excess fatty liquid.
Deglaze the pan with bone broth and add the chicken back into the pan with zucchini noodles. Heat for 2-3 minutes and add sauce until combined. Serve noodles and chicken in a bowl and add roasted sweet potatoes with all toppings. Enjoy!
