So I made a crazy low carb version and itโ€™s everything. ๐ŸคคIf you are eating like a normal human, use normal vermicelli noodles. โฃ โฃ NONNEGOTIABLE: are the fresh lemongrass, mint, and cilantro. These herbs are what brought the flavors together and made this dish AMAZING.

Smash the lemongrass to release the lemony scent, then chop & mix together with the rest of the marinade ingredients. Marinate the chicken overnight. โฃ 2. Prep the Shirataki Noodles (I let them cool down a bit in the fridge after pan frying them)โฃ 3. Cook the chicken on a hot pan, searing each Side on high heat, then letting it cook through over low heatโฃ 4. Prep the dressing by combining all ingredients & stirring.โฃ 5. Place everything in your bowl (salad, noodles, herbs, chicken etc)โฃ 6. Top with dressing & enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚ โฃ โฃ As a side note: I only โ€œcountedโ€ the soy sauce in the marinade, since of course I threw the marinade out after. Since there was no oil in the marinade/nothing aside from the soy sauce except herbs, I feel this is still accurate. Thoughts? ๐Ÿค”

Lately, I’ve had higher carbs to work with, so I’ve been replacing the Miracle Noodles with 100g cooked white rice. The macros with rice come out to 299 cals| 31.3P | 1.4F | 39.1C.

I’ve also been using slightly less Rice Vinegar (10g instead of 15g) & slightly less sweet chili sauce (40g instead of 50g) and this version is slightly less acidic.

You can purchase miracle noodles on Amazon or on their website.
