Zucchini “Noodles” with Chicken and Avocado Sauce

I love zoodles! What are zoodles? Well it’s when you use zucchini as noodles. Unfortunately, I don’t have a snazzy spiralizer😦 So, I am inventive and use a vegetable peeler to make my noodles! This recipes is amazing! I am seriously in love with the sauce!
