First, rub the chicken with olive oil and seasonings. If cooking on stovetop, save some oil for the pan.
Heat the rest of olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat, place chicken breasts in and cook until edges are opaque, about 10 minutes.
Flip to the other side, then cover the pan, lower the heat and cook for another 10 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place chicken on broiler pan (recommended) or baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes, flip and bake 15 more minutes (or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit).
Setup oven so top rack is 3-4 inches from heating element.
Set oven to broil and preheat on high.
Broil chicken 3-8 minutes on each side. Actual time will vary based on thickness of breasts and proximity to the heating element.
Finally (and this is important) let the chicken rest for at least 5 minutes before you cut it or all the juice you made the effort to keep in will come running right out, resulting in a flavorless, rubbery mass. When it comes to a juicy chicken breast, patience is a virtue.
In a sealable bag, add the chicken, balsamic vinaigrette, and italian seasoning. Let the chicken marinate in the fridge for at least 10 minutes or up to overnight.
Heat oil in a grill pan or skillet over medium heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade (discarding extra marinade) and place it in the pan. Cook about 5-10 minutes on each side (depending on thickness) until the center is no longer pink. Serve.
Use a zoodler or a vegetable peeler with teeth to spiralize the zucchini.
Heat the oil in a pan on medium high. Add the zucchini noodles and saute them, turning them continuously, until they are soft but not soggy, about 5 minutes. Mix in the cheese and heat through until melted.

Spiralize zucchini, sprinkle some salt on the zucchini noodles, and place them between some towels to capture any excess moisture. Set aside.
Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add spiralized zucchini and saute until zucchini is soft, about 5 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and a dash of any other herbs or spices you have on hand, and serve.
