After updating my bruschetta chicken recipe a couple of months ago and sharing these (reader favorite) garlic butter steak bites with you guys, I thought it would be fun to combine a few of my favorite bits from each recipe to make these simple, easy, and delicious garlic butter chicken bites with zucchini noodles. Cooked in just one pan, this amazing chicken dinner will have the whole family asking for seconds! Faster than roasting an entire chicken or baking chicken breasts, this super fast dinner takes just 20, maybe 30 minutes to prepare and cook. Tops.
Prepare the chicken: Chop the chicken into small, bite-size pieces. Coat the chicken in a little bit of olive oil and season with the Italian seasoning, garlic seasoning, salt, and black pepper. Meanwhile, mince the garlic, chop the fresh parsley, and spiralize the zucchini. Set aside.
Cook the chicken: Add remaining olive oil and one tbsp of butter to a large pan set over medium-high heat. Working in batches, add chicken to the skillet in a single, non-overlapping layer. Cook on all sides until golden brown and fully cooked. Remove from the pan and set aside.
Cook the zucchini noodles: Add remaining three tbsp of butter, minced garlic, parsley, and chicken broth to the same skillet set over medium heat. Allow butter to melt and garlic to become fragrant before adding the zucchini noodles. Cook zoodles until warm, gently tossing as needed.
Return the chicken and assemble: Return the cooked chicken pieces to the pan and cook until hot, about 1 minute. Sprinkle with shredded parmesan cheese, if desired. Garnish with fresh lemon juice.
