  • 3 teaspoons minced ginger
  • ½ cup honey
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon gluten-free soy sauce I like La Choy

  • Place zoodles in a colander and salt liberally (don't skip this step) let sit for 20 minutes and then soak up extra moisture with a paper towel.
  • In a medium saucepan, add 1 teaspoon of sesame oil, minced garlic and ginger. Sauté over medium heat for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add honey, lemon juice, lemon zest, apple cider vinegar, gluten-free soy sauce and gluten-free cornstarch stir to fully combine. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Let simmer and thicken while cooking chicken.
  • Cut the chicken into bite sized pieces and add to a medium skillet with 1 teaspoon of sesame oil. Add the shredded carrots and chopped cashews.
  • Sauté the chicken for about 4-5 minutes until lightly browned and no longer has pink in centers.
  • Add the sauce to the chicken and toss to coat.
  • Squeeze out excess water from the zoodles with a paper towel.
