Zoodle Pad Thai

photo copyThis was a delicious dish that we made at home last night. This summer we’ve been eating out. A LOT. I attribute it to the beautiful weather and wanting to spend more time outside and around town. Ok, and my laziness. Anyway, I finally went to the grocery store and got a plethora of items to make some delicious dinners at home. This zoodle pad thai was first up on my menu. It did not disappoint! If zoodles (zucchini noodles) aren’t your thing, you can definitely make this with normal rice noodles.

Ingredients
  1. 2 chicken breasts (chopped)
  2. 1 tsp corn strarch
  3. 3 TBS soy sauce
  4. 2 medium zucchinis (spiralized)
  5. 2 eggs (beaten)
  6. 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  7. chopped peanuts for serving
For the Sauce
  1. 1 TBS lime juice
  2. 3 TBS brown sugar dissolved in 1/4 cup of water
  3. 2.5 TBS fish sauce
  4. 2 tsp chili paste
Instructions
  1. Dissolve one tsp corn starch in 3 TBS soy sauce and let chicken marinate in mixture for 10 min.
  2. Combine the lime juice, brown sugar, water, fish sauce, and chili paste to make your sauce.
  3. Prepare your zucchini noodles with a "zoodler" or spiralizer and set aside.
  4. Cook the eggs (scrambled) and set aside.
  5. In a frying pan over medium heat (with a little veg oil) cook the chicken for 5-7 min or until the chicken is done. If the pan gets dry you can add a little chicken broth or water.
  6. When the chicken is done add your zoodles, eggs, and pour the pad thai sauce over. Cook for a few minutes until the zoodles are "done". (I like mine a little crunchy) Use tongs to lift and stir the zoodles while you're cooking them.
  7. Serve with green onions, bean sprouts, and a wedge of lime!
Notes
  1. I had a lot of extra sauce for my zoodles. Add a little at a time until you have enough! Zucchinis don't come in standard sizes so it's hard to tell how much sauce you will really need :D
