Chicken Stir-Fry with Shirataki Noodles : Low Carb


Asian fast food at its best, in the comfort of your own kitchen. Naturally gluten-free shirataki noodles are the secret ingredient in this tasty, healthy — and quick — dish.

Shirataki noodles are naturally gluten-free and are made from the konjac yam, a herbaceous plant from Japan (the word “shirataki” means “white waterfall”).

It’s important to first rinse the noodles really well in cold water in order to remove as much of the liquid (they came packed in) as possible. This rinsing eliminates a potentially unpleasant aftertaste.

The noodles can be consumed as they are or can be prepared in different ways. Try boiling them in water or broth for a few minutes, or try frying them in oil or butter. You can also heat them up in the microwave.

Ingredients:
Serves Two
8g carb per serving
½ lb / 225g shirataki noodles
¾ lb / 350g boneless chicken thighs or chicken breasts
3 tablespoons coconut oil or light olive oil
3 oz. / 75g celery stalks
5 oz. / 150g oyster mushrooms
½ orange bell pepper or yellow bell pepper
salt and ground black pepper
Hot sauce
2 tablespoons sesame oil or light olive oil
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon rice vinegar or cider vinegar
1 tablespoon tamari soy sauce
1 tablespoon sriracha sauce
1 garlic clove, minced

Please see cooking instructions on Diet Doctor site here

Oyster mushrooms are velvety and trumpet-shaped, they have delicate brown, grey, or reddish caps on grey-white stems. They have a peppery flavour that becomes very mild when cooked. Young, small specimens are considered the best.

I used to make stir fried chicken and served it over rice. My kids even liked it as they were growing up.....not made it in yrs. Today dinner will be grilled chicken! Yep, I will be frying up the grill for the first time this season!

Sounds great, though somehow I wouldn´t be surprised if I cannot find Shirataki noodles here in Germany! We don´t even have self-raising flour! I´ll keep my eyes open though.

Happy May to you! Hugs!

I've not heard of these noodles before, but a low-carb alternative to rice or regular noodles sounds fantastic! I'll be looking these up.

My hubby loves anything stir-fried.... He spent time in China back in the 80's and 90's before I met him... He was teaching English on an exchange program with his university here. He loved his times in China.... I know that he will love this recipe. Thanks so much.

Hugs,
Betsy

I'm not sure I would like the noodles, I have heard they taste fishy and for some reason that has sort of turned me off them ,, but this does look and sound wonderful!! I would just use rice noodles maybe,,

I tried cooking this type of noodles once but they didn't turn out very good. I'm sure I did something wrong. Maybe I forgot to rinse them, I'm not sure. I may give them another try sometime.
