Cucumber Noodle Salad with BBQ Chicken

A chicken breast, a cucumber, plain yoghurt and bbq sauce – these are the ingredients chosen to create the perfect quick and easy lunch.

When Cody and I buy condiments, we always spend a long time reading ingredient lists and labels. We always search for the ones that contain only real, whole ingredients. When it came to finding an “all natural” BBQ sauce, we ended up choosing the Annie’s Naturals brand. It had the shortest list of ingredients with mostly whole ingredients.

Cucumber noodles might be my new favorite way to eat vegetables. As mentioned before, we use the Veggetti (more information on our resources page).

Once I finished noodling the cucumber, I seasoned it well with salt and pepper. There is nothing better than cucumber with a bit of salt and pepper, especially when the cucumber is cut into noodles! I seriously could’ve eaten the cucumber noodles alone – it tastes that good! When you throw some thin slices of chicken on top and drizzle it with plain yoghurt, it takes it to the next level.

    1. Hi Mary,

      Wow thanks for this question…I had no idea I somehow missed adding that in! I used 1/4 cup of yoghurt and 1/4 cup of bbq sauce. I’ll fix it on the recipe as well! 🙂
