Cilantro Chili Chicken & “Noodles”

For months my family has been loving replacing carbs with veggie varieties – cauliflower for rice and mash, zucchini for noodles, zucchini as fries, etc. But now… oh the possibilities!! In the first few days I have already made zucchini noodles, beet noodles and sweet potato noodles – all AMAZING!!

I paired the sweet potato noodles with cilantro chili chicken and wow wow… The flavor profile was on fleek (Ok, I’m totally trying to be Food Network-ish and hip with that last statement. The fact that I just used “hip” shows you that I’m a nerd LOL).

Ok, this meal is a must! TRY it!! You’ll love it!!




What you need:

1LB ground chicken

1 small sweet onion, diced

1/2C chopped cilantro

1tsp chili powder

1tsp sea salt

1TBSP coconut oil


What you need:

1 large sweet potato

1TBSP coconut oil

How to:

Make your “noodles” by washing a sweet potato and then spiralizing them. Set aside. In a large pan, saute onion w/  oil. Add chicken and seasonings. Cook through. Add cilantro and “noodles”. Cook on medium for 5-8 minutes until potato noodles are the texture you like (best with a little crunch).

      I use a spiralizer. It has a few different attachments and there’s a couple that do noodles. It’s a really cool contraption and you can make all sorts of veggies noodles and chips with it! Not a strange question at all! I should’ve put that in the post! Let me know if you try the recipe and what you think!
