Ingredients (2 servings)
200g chicken breast
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp curry powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp chili powder (optional)
1 tsp olive oil
3 tbsp peanut butter
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1.5 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp sriracha
1 tsp monk fruit erythritol sweetener
4 tbsp water
400g shirataki noodles
1/4 head lettuce
1 small carrot
2-3 tbsp crushed roasted peanuts
Preheat oven to 220°C / 425°F.
In a small bowl, add all the seasonings and mix until combined.
Using a meat mallet or rolling pin, pound chicken breast to 0.8-inch thickness to ensure even cooking.
Drizzle olive oil on chicken and rub seasoning all over until evenly coated.
Bake chicken for 15-20 minutes or until internal temperature reads 75°C / 165°F on an instant-read thermometer. For the last 2-3 minutes of baking, change the oven setting to grill for a golden brown finish on the chicken.
Remove chicken from oven. Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
Prepare shirataki noodles
Drain the noodles, then rinse in a large sieve under tap water for a few minutes. Drain again.
Pan fry the noodles without any oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat for a few minutes. This is to remove as much water as possible to enhance the texture of noodles. Keep turning the noodles with tongs and take care not to let them dry out too much. Now the noodles are ready.
Make sauce and assemble
In a bowl, add all ingredients for the sauce and mix until combined.
Finely slice lettuce and julienne carrot.
Divide lettuce, carrot and shirataki noodles into 2 portions and transfer to servings bowls. Top with sliced chicken, satay sauce and crushed peanuts. Enjoy!
