  5. Push the chicken to the side of the pan, add zucchini noodles and cook for 1 minute.
  6. Pour the sauce over the noodles and cook for 3-4 minutes until the noodles are tender but lightly crunchy, toss the noodles with pasta tongs while cooking to make sure the sauce is spread evenly.
  7. Transfer the noodles and chicken to a plate with pasta tongs.
  8. Pour the sauce over the zucchini noodles and chicken.
  9. Garnish with fresh basil leaves, lime wedges, roasted peanuts and serve immediately.
Zucchini noodles are super delicate, avoid overcooking.
