Noodle-less Chicken Pad Thai

Okay, this picture is horrid, but dinner last night was fabulous!  Seriously good.  In fact, I wish I had this again tonight.  I made a few tweaks to the original recipe – swapped almond butter for peanut butter, coconut aminos for soy sauce, and I did double the sauce recipe because it was so, so good!

 

 

I found the recipe (and a much better photo) at:

Ingredients

–         1 large spaghetti squash, split lengthwise with seeds removed

–         1 large yellow onion, chopped

–         3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

–         2 zucchinis, chopped (I didn’t have any zucchini in the fridge, so I left this out)

–         1 red bell pepper, chopped

–         1 cup snow peas or sugar snap peas

–         1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed

–         1 ½ Tbsp almond butter

–         1 Tbsp coconut aminos

–         1 ½ tsp chili paste

–         1 Tbsp fresh lime juice

–         Cilantro if you like it

–         Green onion, chopped for topping

–         Salt and pepper to taste

–         Sriracha for topping if you like it!

 

Directions:

–         Preheat oven to 400 – put your squash, cut side down, in a large roasting dish.  I put water in the bottom of the dish, but I don’t guess you have to do that.  Bake the squash till it is tender and you can use a fork to scrape the ‘spaghetti’ strands off the skin.

–         In a large wok, add oil of your choice, and sauté your chicken until it is fully cooked.  Season with salt and pepper.

–         Add veggies and cook until tender (I held back on the snow peas and added them toward the end)

–         Meanwhile, whisk together almond butter, coconut aminos, chili paste, and lime juice. 

–         Add the strands of cooked squash to the wok, and then pour the sauce over everything.  Toss it all together for a minute or two and then plate it up.  Decorate with chopped green onions, Sriracha, and cilantro if you desire.
