Teriyaki Chicken and Zoodles
I love making healthy dinner recipes that my whole family can enjoy. This one hit the spot! My kids loved the chicken and I loved the healthful swap of spiralized zucchini in place of carb-heavy pasta!
I’ve told you of my love for the Ninja® brand before in my Ninja® Cooking System with Auto-iQ post, and I have one more Ninja® appliance I can’t live without that I just have to tell you about! I recently upgraded my Ninja® blender to this beauty of a kitchen system AND I was able to get rid of my food processor since this has one too! It’s AMAZING how much it can do!
The Ninja Intelli-Sense Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer has one smart base that transforms into four high-performance appliances including a 72 oz. Total Crushing® Blender, 64 oz. Precision Processor™, 24 oz. Single-Serve Cup, and Auto-Spiralizer. It’s AMAZING!
I love the Intuitive Touchscreen and Smart Vessel Recognition, which automatically senses which vessel is attached to the base and the touchscreen changes to display a customized menu of Smart Programs on the touchscreen, enabling one Smart Base to become four high-performance appliances! Pretty impressive!
It also features 12 Smart Programs that are Chef-designed, automatic recipe creations that deliver optimal results every time. It is SO cool when you press the button and precisely calibrated patterns of pulsing and pausing combined with ideal speed, power and torque for each attachment create everything from fresh salsa and pizza dough to margaritas and decadent ice creams—all it takes is a simple tap!
These zoodles are just one of the amazing things this Ninja Intelli-Sense Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer can do. It’s SO easy and I never thought making zoodles could be so effortless.

Next, mix together the ingredients for the teriyaki sauce in a small bowl.
Then, season chicken with salt and pepper and drizzle 1-2 tablespoons of your sauce over them. Heat oil in a skillet on medium high heat. Add chicken and cook until brown, flip and sear opposite side until brown.
Then, add pineapple and cook for a minute to soften it. Add remaining sauce and turn heat up to high. Allow sauce to bubble and thicken (1-2 minutes).
Finally, add your zoodles to the pan and toss with sauce. Cook until zoodles are al dente (firm but cooked).
Taste the zoodles and be sure not to overcook them! You don’t want them to turn to mush. It only takes a couple minutes to cook them in the pan.
Serve your teriyaki chicken and zoodles immediately. You may garnish with green onions, sesame seeds and crushed red pepper, as desired.
This teriyaki chicken is better than takeout and full of flavor! My kids LOVED it and there was nothing left in the pan by the time everyone was done eating. They devoured it.
Have a little fun and eat your zoodles with chopsticks! The combination of al dente zoodles with tender, moist chicken and juicy pineapple makes for an amazing easy dinner recipe that is sure to please.
