Low Carb Pad Thai Chicken Recipe – Diabetic Chicken Pad Thai

Pad Thai is one of my husband and my favorite dishes at our favorite Thai restaurant.  To be honest, we haven’t gone in a while because then I eat the noodles & I’d rather avoid eating them.  I decided I would try to make something similar without the real noodles, a low carb pad thai chicken recipe.  So here goes!!

I chose to use carrots & zucchini ribbons.  I used a plain vegetable peeler to peel the carrots, I used 2 carrots.  Next time I’d probably add 4 because when I peeled them, it’s not possible to peel the whole carrot, so I was left with the center of the carrot that wasn’t able to be peeled.

For the zucchini ribbons I used my new (ish) mandolin, which worked perfectly, but I was left with some of the zucchini as well.  So instead of one small zucchini, I’d probably use 2 next time.  I did chop the remaining zucchini and add it to the pan so it didn’t go to waste.

I also decided to add a red pepper because I loved cooked peppers:)  You could use any color bell pepper you like:) Also, I thought about adding broccoli, but there is only so much room in the pan:)

For the chicken, I sliced 2 chicken breasts very thinly.  Then I added the marinade to the chicken and let it sit about 20 minutes.  Next time, I may let the chicken marinade for a few hours or more.  It was delicious with the sauce, but on it’s own it didn’t absorb quite enough.  Sriacha fixed it for me.  My kiddos asked for seconds, so it will be on our weekly menu regularly.

Next time, I may add the mushroom noodles, then it would be like offical Chicken Pad Thai!!

I could also have served this with my cauliflower fried rice (my family also loves this recipe!).
