Every keto eater needs a zoodle maker, to turn the simple zucchini into quick and easy zoodles!
We aren’t fooling anyone that Keto zoodles don’t taste like pasta, but they are easy, quick and a simple way to bulk out Keto meals like simple chicken dishes.
I’ve seen some fancy spiralisers recently that can spiralise even more vegetables like carrots, but zucchinis are always best for the Keto carb count.

Substitutions and Ingredient tips
This is a versatile and easy Keto dish, that you can change up to your tastes.
If you don’t like mushrooms, you can leave them out or substitute for some yummy roasted eggplant.
The zucchini noodles can be substituted for the magical Keto noodles known as Shirataki noodles. I don’t love the texture of these noodles so usually have them more in crunchy Keto stir fry.
If you decide to use Shirataki noodles, make sure you rinse them well (they have a weird fishy smell).
I then fry off my Shirataki noodles in a dry pan until they are ‘squeaky’ – you’ll know what I mean when they start squeaking when you move them around your frying pan! I find this helps make them less rubbery, and soak up sauce better.
You could also use Chicken thigh if you wanted to reduce the calories, just make sure you don’t overcook it so it doesn’t end up dry.
Lastly, the bacon could be left out, but I love the carbonara like flavour it adds to this easy, comforting Keto dinner.

- ADD INGREDIENTS Add the bacon and mushrooms and saute for 4 – 5 minutes until lightly golden.
- CONTINUE COOKING Add the chicken and garlic and continue cooking until lightly browned.
- SIMMER Add the white wine and simmer for 1 minute, scraping the bottom of the pan for any stuck bits of bacon or chicken.
- POUR OTHER INGREDIENTS Pour in the cream, then add the chilli, salt and pepper.
- SIMMER Simmer on low for 12 – 15 minutes until the chicken is cooked through, and spiralise your zucchini in the meantime.
- SERVE Taste for salt and pepper, then serve over zoodles
- Keto Creamy Chicken Zoodles stores well in the fridge for 2 – 3 days, like any other cream and chicken based recipe. Don’t add the zoodles if you are saving it for later, just make up the chicken part and add fresh zoodles.
- You can freeze the cooked Chicken and cream for up to 3 months. Add fresh zoodles after defrosting. Cream based Keto sauces can sometimes separate when frozen and reheated so just give it a good stir, it will still taste delicious!
