Why homemade sauce?

Can you use other meats beside chicken?

Absolutely! Use ground turkey, beef, pork or sliced beef. Follow the Thai Chicken Noodles instructions the same for any ground or sliced meat you use. Just be sure to cook it through prior to adding any other ingredients. For sliced beef I would error on a slight sear as it will continue to cook throughout the cooking process and could be overdone by the end. If you use a flank steak I would suggest marinating it in some coconut aminos and lime juice for at least 30 minutes prior to using to tenderize it. 

What is tapioca flour and why do you always use it?

Tapioca flour is flavorless and mixes quickly unlike all-purpose flour which needs to cook a little longer to get rid of the powder-like texture. Tapioca flour is also gluten free. For this recipe we are using a tapioca flour slurry to thicken the Thai Chicken Noodles sauce at the end. You can also use cornstarch or any other thickener you’d like.

Is this gluten and dairy free

Sure is! These Thai Chicken Noodles are both dairy free and gluten free. The Thai noodles are gluten free and by using the tapioca flour to thicken vs. cornstarch.

How to make these Thai Chicken Noodles:

Prep the zoodles

Chop the end off the zucchini and using a spiralizer, slice into zoodles. Place the zoodles on a paper towel, sprinkle with salt and let sit while you prepare the dish. This helps get the moisture out of the zucchini. 

Cook the chicken

Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add garlic and chopped chicken to the hot oil. Cook until the chicken is cooked through. Approximately 5 minutes, stirring often so it cooks through on all sides. 

Prep sauce and noodles

While the chicken is cooking add all the sauce ingredients to a bowl or jar and combine, slice your red bell pepper into thin strips and cook your noodles. Cook the stir fry noodles according to the package directions (boil for 4-6 minutes and rinse in cold water. Tip: break in half before boiling to help distribute throughout the dish for serving). Be sure to weigh the noodles uncooked.

Combine ingredients

Once the chicken has cooked through add the red bell pepper to the pan and sauté for a few minutes to soften the peppers.

Add eggs

Push the chicken and bell pepper off to the side of the pan and add the eggs. Scramble until completely cooked and mix in with the chicken. 

Add ingredients

Pat the zoodles dry and cut in half to help distribute throughout the dish to make serving easier. Add the zoodles to the pan with the chicken.

Thicken sauce

Add the cooked and drained stir fry noodles and sauce. Mix together well to combine. Let the noodles simmer for a few minutes. Mix the tapioca with water to create a slurry and add to the dish. Mix together to thicken the sauce.

Garnish and enjoy!

Add chopped green onions, cilantro and peanuts. Serve and enjoy your Thai Chicken Noodles!
