Gluten Free Chicken Piccata with Zoodles

I must admit, I was very skeptical of any noodle shaped vegetables replacing my pasta. I held off on the zoodle faze for a very long time but they have withstood the test of time. As I started cycle syncing and being more aware of how gluten affected my gut, I decided to buy some zucchini. This dish is delicious and healthy! The zoodles keep it light and the chicken is gluten free but the piccata keeps it tasty.
