Okay, this recipe HAS TO BE SHARED! It was crazy easy and I’m always looking for carb free dinner recipes. Because let’s be honest, I usually either eat my carb allotment well before dinner or my children have driven me insane and I desperately need to swap a carb for a glass of wine. Please tell me I’m not alone. We made this last night and couldn’t get over how easy it was and so so good. I mean, life would be so sad without pad thai, so now I have two healthy, plan approved ways to get my pad thai fix without completely blowing it. (Other recipe is in Recipes section).
Doodle Chicken Pad ThaiPrint This
- 8 oz. chicken breasts
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 3 stalks green onion, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup shredded carrots
- Zucchini Noodles, package or 2 zucchinis
- Sea Salt
- Crushed red pepper, just a dash or more if preferred
- 1 T Lime juice
- 1 T agave nectar
- 4 T coconut aminos
- Chopped peanuts
-Mixing 1 T lime juice, 1 T agave nectar, 4 T coconut aminos and crushed red pepper. Set aside.
-Cut the chicken breast into cubes and cook OR use pre-shredded chicken in the Crockpot from food prepped last Sunday OR if you’re REALLY lazy, get a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store. Set the chicken aside
-Scramble 2 eggs in pan. Remove when finished and set aside with the chicken.
-Cook the green onion and garlic for a minute or two
-Add carrots to the pan and stir fry for a few minutes
-Add the chicken and egg to the pan
-Add zoodles and cook for a minute or until they begin to soften.
-Add sauce and cook for an additional 2-4 minutes.
-Serve with chopped peanuts (and actually, I was too lazy to chop them) and you could add cilantro on top if you’re into that
As you can see, there are varying levels of laziness included in this recipe. I make a big batch of crockpot shredded chicken on Sunday during my food prep, so I always have it ready to go for recipes like this. It takes out half the work and the crockpot thing is so easy it's embarrassing. If you want to be EVEN lazier, then just buy a rotisserie chicken or some prepared grilled chicken from Whole Foods and cut it into cubes. Do what you need to do to make it work. Also, I don't have a spiralizer and never plan on spiraling my own veggies, so I always buy them ready to go.
