Lemon Chicken Courgetti Recipe


Lemon Chicken Courgetti Recipe

Serves 2

Spiralising is all the rage at the moment as it is a healthier replacement for pasta. If you want the pasta consistency, you could had a handful of pasta as well. Once you spiralised your courgette, it takes a few minutes to cook, so this lemon chicken courgetti recipe is super easy for a quick weekday dinner.


2 courgettes
1 onion
2 chicken breasts
90g feta cheese
2 tsps olive oil/rapeseed oil
1 lemon


Spiralise your courgette.

Finely chop the onion.

Heat the olive oil in a wok, when hot, add on the onion and cook for a couple of minutes until soft.

Meanwhile chop the chicken into bitsize piece and then add to the wok.

Cook for another 3 – 5 minutes and once the chicken has browned, add the courgette.

Cook for a few more minutes. The courgette will start to give out moisture. This is what makes the soupey-sauce. Once the courgette does this, crumble in the feta.

Then slice the lemon in half and squeeze each half into the wok, careful not to get any pips in there.

Once the feta has melted into the soupey-sauce, serve immediately.

I like this dish as the combination of lemon and feta works really well. The courgette’s moisture gives a natural liquid base to the sauce. Once you have eaten all the solid ingredient, you can grab a spoon and gobble up the rest of the sauce.

We actually use lemon rapeseed oil instead of standard oil in this lemon chicken courgetti recipe, but either is fine. It just gives it a bit more of a lemoney zing.

Happy spiralising!

    Love the sound of this recipe; lemon and chicken work so well together. Have RT’d on twitter too. @dartzie62

  2. Oh I keep thinking about getting a spiralizer but don’t know whether it would just end up in the back of the pantry! I’m not a big fan of pasta so it would be perfect for me though. Thanks so much for linking up to #SundayKitchen hope to see you back tomorrow

      I think you would become a big fan quite quickly Toni. I love trying all the new recipes and mixing it up with vegetable noodles/pasta. Especially if you aren’t a big pasta fan. Maybe start with one of the smaller, cheaper handheld ones.

  3. I love courgetti and it has become a real favourite in our house so will be giving this ago. Thank you for joining us at #BloggerClubUK hope to see you again this week x

      Oh I bet that they are Katie. Such a nice alternative to pasta if you want something a bit healthier.

  4. I’ve never ‘spiralised’ anything! It looks like it would be a lot of effort and I am terrible in the kitchen. However this looks really tasty! 🙂

    • Sally Sally says:

      It’s actually really easy if you have the right equipment. I have a spiraliser and it takes me only a couple of minutes to spiralise two courgettes. Really simple.

    • Sally Sally says:

      Me too! It’s such a good flavour. I’ve been growing my own lemons on my kitchen window sill (it catches all day sun) for the last few years. They taste amazing. I can’t believe how big they get considering they are grown inside on a small tree.

    • Sally Sally says:

      I know. How easy is this one Joy? One of our favourite weekday meals, so quick to knock together and super tasty.

  5. Oooh, that sounds lovely. Love lemon and feta together … will think about looking into a spiralizer, keep hearing good things about them #anythinggoes
