Garlic Basil Chicken Bowls

Hopefully someone with a nutrition background reads this and comments. I know cornstarch is nothing more than a processed carb. That being said, one tablespoon makes all the difference. Chicken coated in cornstarch has this crispy, delicious layer.

Back to what you came here for- the recipe. This recipe is gluten-free and dairy-free. Minus the cornstarch and vegan mozzarella, it fits most diet plans. Scroll to the bottom for the recipe!

Over low heat, place the frozen carrot spirals in a saucepan with 1/2 the garlic. Cover the saucepan.

Cook the chicken over high heat until it is no longer pink.

Using a food processor, blender, or Nutribullet, add basil, garlic, avocado oil and nutritional yeast. Process together until it is blended into a smooth sauce. (See pictures above).
