  • While chicken in saoking in buttermilk, fill another shallow pan with ½ cup Panko bread crumbs.
  • Add to the bread crumbs 1 tsp oregano, 1 tsp basil, ½ tsp thyme, ½ tsp, salt, ¼ tsp pepper. Mix well.
  • Take your chicken breasts and transfer to the Panko, coating both sides.
  • Transfer to a baking sheet brushed with 1 ½ Tbs olive oil.
  • Bake in oven at 350º for 25 minutes, turning the breasts half way.
  • While the chicken is in the oven, take your zucchini and cut in half.
  • Take a zester and run it down the zucchini. Do this along all the sides until you get to the core.
  • Discard the core.

    Love zucchini noodles...if you really want to low carb it....try crumbling up pork rinds as your crusting material for the chicken...crushed pork rinds = zero carbs. Love this recipe.
