Paleo Chicken Pad Thai  From Chrissy and Eat2Bee Healthy!

My husband and I are big foodies, and he told me last night this is the best dish I have ever made him.  Huge compliment coming from him!
Serves 2-3
Ingredients: 1 Bunch of green onions – diced (green & white parts) 6oz Sweet potato vermicelli  – Huge thanks to Simone over at Zenbelly Foods for finding this yummy pad Thai ingredient on amazon! – Link here: http://www.amazon.com/Dragonfly-Sweet-Potato-Vermicelli-20-Ounce/dp/B005S9U0A8
4 Cloves minced garlic
1/4c Toasted raw pistachio nuts (I did mine on the stove top for a couple of minutes in a pan) – chopped
1T Sunflower butter (tastes a lot like peanut to me in recipes)
2T Apricot & Date chutney – If you have tamarind you can use instead if you prefer.  But we love the taste of the chutney in our pad Thai.  Recipe here: http://www.eat2beehealthy.com/2013/07/apricot-date-chutney.html
2T Red Boat fish sauce
2T Palm Sugar (optional)
1T Apple cider vinegar 1T Sriracha (gluten free brand only)
4oz Tara Firma Farms – Chicken breast/thigh meat – We had some left over from a roasted chicken – Diced
2 Tara Firma Farms pastured eggs – whisked
1T Coconut oil 1 Lemon – cut in half
1/4c Salted red cabbage – Dice, sprinkle with salt and set aside
Directions:

  • Prep everything before getting started.
  • Boil a pan of water
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl add fish sauce, palm sugar, apple cider vinegar, sriracha & sunflower butter – whisk until combined – set aside.
  • Add sweet potato vermicelli – cook for 5 min
  • Strain sweet potato vermicelli and run cold water over it to stop it from cooking
  • In a large skillet add coconut oil melt over medium heat
  • Add salted red cabbage, green onions – saute for 3-5 min
  • Add garlic – saute for 1 min
  • Add whisked eggs – stir for 2 min into onion/cabbage/garlic mixture
  • Add chicken and noodles – warm for 2-3 min
  • Add fish sauce mixture (made earlier) and apricot & date chutney, and pistachios – mix everything together well – cook for an additional 2-3 min
  • Taste test – see if you need more lemon or fish sauce based on your taste.
  • Serve up & enjoy!  I love to add a little extra sriracha on my just before I eat it.  I personally enjoy a spicy pad Thai, and my hubby loves to add more fish sauce on his.  It’s all a matter of taste and experimentation on your part.  Enjoy!

Here is a photo I snapped from my iphone last night – just to give a little sneak peak but this one does not do this dish justice!
