Chicken Pad Thai
- 1 tablespoon avocado oil
- 3 large eggs, whisked
- 1 cup sliced onion (100 grams)
- 1 pound chicken breast (thinly sliced)
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 4 medium-large sweet potatoes, spiralized (8 cups/750 grams)
- 5 large mushrooms, sliced (3 cups/200 grams)
- 1 1/2 cups sliced bell pepper (160 grams)
- 3 green onions, chopped
- 1/4 packed cup cilantro, roughly chopped
- salt and pepper, to taste
- for serving: bean sprouts, chopped cilantro, crushed almonds, chopped green onion, lime juice
Run your sweet potatoes through your spiralizer and set aside.
Make the sauce. In a small bowl, combine the coconut aminos, almond butter, rice vinegar, fish sauce, lime juice, tamarind paste, red pepper flakes, and salt and pepper and mix to combine. Set aside.
In a large sauté pan over low heat, add 1 tablespoon oil and let it get hot, about 30 seconds. Add the eggs and stir constantly until scrambled, but not cooked all the way through, about 1-2 minutes. Remove and set aside.
Turn up heat to medium and add onion and sauté until softened, about 2 minutes. Add chicken and garlic and cook for another 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken is slightly browned on the outside.
Add sweet potato noodles and sauté for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add in mushrooms and bell peppers and sauté for another 2 minutes. Add sauce and scrambled eggs and mix well to combine. Let simmer for 2 minutes until everything is cooked through and flavors are combined. Turn off heat and stir in green onion and cilantro. Serve with sides of choice and enjoy!
