  4. Return chicken to pan. Heat until warm.

Notes

Do not add zucchini noodles to pan. The zucchini will cook down becoming too watery. They will create liquid and your sauce will be too runny. (Ask me if I did this once before) 🙂

If your sauce has gotten too thick, no problem – just add some cream back in until it’s the right consistency.
