Easy Chicken Pad Thai

Easy Chicken Pad Thai

Pad Thai is Asian comfort food for me. I used to love ordering take out and getting a to-go box overflowing with these saucy, delicious noodles. I never attempted a “clean” version until I found this quick and easy recipe from Ancestral-Nutrition.com. It was the perfect way to test out the shirataki “no guilt noodles” I had been wanting to try. The entire package is only 30 calories, so I wasn’t expecting much, but I have to say this meal was awesome! I bulked it up with some zucchini noodles too, which made this filling 30 minute meal packed with veggies and protein.

Container count per serving: 1 1/2 red, 1 1/2 green, 6 tsp

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 tbsp peanut butter (or use almond butter to make it paleo)
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1-2 tbsp Sriracha sauce
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger, or 1 tsp ground
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 6 oz shirataki noodles (can substitute rice noodles instead)
  • 1 1/3 cups chicken, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 zucchini, spiralized
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup carrots, cut into matchsticks
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 eggs
  • optional: chopped cashews and green onions or cilantro (for garnish)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Drain the noodles. There will be a strong smell, so rinse thoroughly until the smell is gone.
  2. Saute noodles in a dry skillet for 1-2 minutes over medium heat. Transfer to a bowl.
  3. In a blender or food processor, combine all of the ingredients up to but not including the noodles. Blend until smooth.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in the skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook about 6 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Transfer to a bowl.
  5. Add remaining 1 tbsp oil to the skillet and saute the sliced onion and carrot until very tender. Add the garlic.
  6. Whish the two eggs and add them to the onions and carrots. Cook until set.
  7. Add the noodles, zucchini noodles and sauce. Stir to combine.
  8. Optional: top with chopped cashews, green onions or cilantro.
