Low-Carb Asian Noodle Bowl with Chicken and Sesame Ginger Dressing

March 28, 2019 0 Comments



Low-Carb Asian Noodle Bowl with Chicken and Sesame Ginger Dressing Recipe

The lure of Asian takeout—and sometimes even those stalls in mall food courts that beckon you closer with free samples on a toothpick—is real. There’s something oddly comforting and satisfying about twirling saucy noodles around chopsticks or a fork, lifting them straight out of the white box with the red pagoda on the side, and slurping a pile of them into your mouth.

We know that Asian takeout is often laden with canola, soy or corn oils, sugar-sweetened sauces, MSG, soy, and more salt than even most endurance athletes need in a day. But still. There’s something so undeniably tempting about the sweet, salty, umami and sometimes spicy flavors of Asian food.  

We took on the challenge of remaking an Asian-fusion dish that’s comforting, satisfying, a balance of contrasting flavors and textures, and, above all, craveable. Our low-carb Asian noodle bowl uses shirataki or kelp noodles, which are very low in carbs, to add that twirly flare; both stir-fried and raw veggies for crunch and color; kimchi for spice and fermented probiotic goodness; and chicken marinated in our Sesame Ginger Dressing to impart lightly sweet, sour, and spicy flavor. If you want to make this dish vegetarian, just leave out the chicken.

Ingredients

Instructions

*How to prepare the chicken...

  • Place the chicken in a bowl and season both sides with salt and pepper. Pour about 2 tablespoons of Primal Kitchen Sesame Ginger Dressing on top.
  • Flip the chicken so it gets coated in dressing on the other side too. Place in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 hour.
  • When chicken has finished marinating, remove from refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature on the counter (about 10 minutes).
  • Heat an indoor grill pan or cast-iron skillet to medium-high. Add 2 teaspoons of Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil to the pan.
  • Cook chicken thigh for about 6 minutes per side (depending on how thick your chicken pieces are). Cooked chicken should register 165ºF on a meat thermometer when inserted into the thickest part of the meat.
  • Remove the chicken from the pan and allow to rest on a cutting board for 5-10 minutes. Slice chicken into bite-sized pieces.
