  • 1/4 cup or so butter to cook in
  • 2 small/medium onions chopped
  • 1/2 lb organic white mushrooms sliced
  • 6 cloves of garlic minced
  • 3-4 roma tomatoes cubed
  • 1 cup cooked chicken You can use more if you wish. I use my crockpot or oven roaster to cook multiple whole chickens at one time so I always have cubed, cooked chicken in the freezer for quick meals!
  • 2 medium zucchini spirilized
  • 2 medium yellow/summer squash spirilized
  • 1 TB dry basil or a handful of fresh chopped basil
  • 1/2 cup parmesan or other raw cheese plus more to garnish the top
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste


  • Saute the onion and mushroom in the butter over medium/high heat with a big pinch of sea salt to bring out their juices and sweeten for about 5-7 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and cook for a minute.
  • Add the tomatoes and chicken and cook for a few minutes until the tomato juices start coming out and make a sauce. You can garnish with grated Parmesan.
