Spicy Asian Chicken Stir Fry, under 250 calories

  Oh don't worry, you haven't been redirected to the wrong page. The dish pictured above was indeed 218 calories total!

  The stir fry came out spicy and sweet with a hint of toasted sesame. More importantly it's super filling thanks to the lean chicken breast and Miracle Noodles. Check out Miracle Noodles (shirataki noodles) online if you haven't heard much about them, I bought mine off Amazon.

Spicy Asian Chicken Stir Fry
  • 113 grams (4 ounces) extra lean Chicken Breast (100 calories)
  • 170 grams (6 ounces) Stir Fry veggies (50 calories)
  • 1 tsp. Toasted Sesame Seeds, optional (17 calories)
  • 7 ounce pack angel hair Miracle Noodles, optional
      For the Sauce:
  • 1 tsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tsp. low sodium Soy Sauce (3 calories)
  • 1 tsp. Toasted Sesame Oil (43 calories)
  • 1 tsp. Sriracha or other chili sauce (5 calories) 
  • 1 packet Truvia or Stevia
  • Black Pepper & Garlic Powder, to taste
  • pinch Red Chili Flakes
Preparation & Cooking Instructions

Cut away all excess fat from the chicken, cut into 1 inch cubes or a similar size. Place in a plastic baggie and add a splash of vinegar, soy sauce, and a packet of Truvia. Let marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. To make the sauce simply combine all of the ingredients and place in the fridge while the chicken marinates. I bought a pack of exotic stir fry veggies from Fresh n Easy, you will want some combination of veggies such as Bok Choy, cabbage, snow peas, peppers, onion, etc.

Prep the Miracle Noodles. To do so rinse them under hot water for about a minute using a mesh colander, this will eliminate the fishy smell. Let the noodles strain, press on them a bit with a paper towel. Transfer to a cutting board and roughly chop so the noodles are shorter. Place in a bowl and microwave for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. 

Heat a skillet over medium-high to high heat, add a tablespoon of coconut oil or other oil for frying if you desire. Add the chicken and cook until it begins to brown and caramelize. Throw in the veggies and noodles and stir fry the whole mixture until the veggies are to the desired tenderness, I like mine to have a bit of a crunch. Add the sauce and continue to stir fry over high heat until the noodles have absorbed the sauce, this happens very quickly. You shouldn't have too much liquid because the whole mixture will absorb the sauce. If you want more liquid simply add a splash of water or more soy sauce to the mixture. Stir in the sesame seeds and enjoy!

They taste like whatever you cook them with, just like how tofu absorbs flavors the noodles do the same. I'm excited to try them with cheese once I'm past this low calorie phase!! =D
