  1. Season chicken on both sides with salt and black pepper.
  2. Place flour on a plate or in a shallow bowl. Dredge chicken in flour until just lightly coated on all sides; transfer chicken to a plate.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons oil and swirl the pan so the bottom of the pan is coated.
  4. Sear chicken on both sides, working in batches as needed, until lightly golden brown, about 4 minutes per side; transfer to a plate. If you are working in batches, you will need to add more olive oil in between to ensure the chicken won’t stick.
  5. Reduce the heat under skillet to medium; add butter and let melt. Cook and stir shallots, garlic, and sliced mushrooms in melted butter until mushrooms are tender, about 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper.
  6. Mix chicken broth, almond milk, vinegar, lemon juice, and nutmeg into mushroom mixture; reduce heat and simmer sauce.
  7. Nestle the chicken back into the sauce and simmer until the sauce thickens and the chicken is completely cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the chicken should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  8. Cook zucchini noodles in a skillet over medium heat just until tender, about 2 minutes.
  9. Layer zucchini noodles with chicken and sauce and garnish with parsley.
