Grilled Chicken Stir Fry with Veggies

This is another idea for using the angel hair pasta zucchini made with the spiral slicer.  It was very quick and easy to make too!  I had just come home from the grocery store very hungry and wanted something fast!  I threw this together very quickly without hardly thinking.  Just grabbed the stuff in front of me I just bought and made it.  It's easy to overcook the zucchini pasta so be careful to add that last and only just get it warm.  Doesn't take much.  It was really good!

Serving Size  : 1     
Categories    : Main dish

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
  1         tablespoon  coconut oil
  1         boneless skinless chicken breast -- cut in strips
  1/2      small  zucchini -- made into "angel hair pasta" with spiral slicer, or cut into noodles
  1/4      cup  roasted red peppers -- I get a jar of them already cut into strips
  1         cup  fresh spinach -- the baby spinach leaves are good
  1         tablespoon  minced garlic
                        garlic powder -- to taste
                        onion powder -- to taste
                        seasoned salt -- (Your favorite blend) to taste
  1/4     cup  parmesan cheese

In a medium saute pan, melt the oil.  Add the chicken strips, and seasonings, and cook, stirring until cooked through, about 3 minutes.

Move chicken to one side of pan and add the minced garlic.  Add roasted red peppers and stir about a minute.  Add spinach and stirr another minute, until wilted.  

Add angel hair zucchini and stir in just until warmed and then spoon the veggie mixture onto a plate and the chicken on top.  Toss with parmesan cheese.
