Ingredients
  

Broiled Salmon

  • 8 oz Chicken Breast Skin removed, Diced

Creamy Sauce

  • 2 tbsp Coconut Oil Organic Unfiltered
  • 6 oz Red Onion Diced
  • 3 cloves Garlic Cloves
  • 7 oz Mushrooms White button
  • 1 tsp dried mixed herbs Preferably Italian
  • 1/4 cup Vegetable broth or Water
  • 4 tbsp Dairy Free Cream Cheese we use the Daiya one

Zucchini Noodles

  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil Organic Unfiltered
  • 14 oz Zucchini Organic (use a sprializer or julienne the zucchini)

Instructions
 

Creamy Chicken & Mushroom Sauce

  • In a large skillet or frying pan, heat the coconut oil and fry the onions and garlic until softened.
  • Add the chicken, mushrooms and mixed herbs, stir until chicken is cooked through (don't worry if some residue is sticking to the pan slightly)
  • De-glaze the pan with the vegetable broth, stirring constantly
  • Remove from the heat, and serve as soon as possible

Zucchini Noodles

  • Whilst the salmon is cooking, take a large frying pan or skillet, heat 1 tbsp of Coconut Oil
  • Once the oil is hot, drop in the zucchini noodles and "stir-fry" for about 3-5 minutes. (don't over cook, you don't want mush)
  • Leave to drain in a colander for a couple of minutes
  • If you leave them to drain for longer than that, then just before serving the dish, return the pan to the heat and add the noodles to warm them back up (again not for too long)

Plating up

  • Place the noodles on the bottom of each bowl (we like our pasta bowls)
  • Top with the creamy salmon sauce
