  • 2 Teaspoons Golden Swerve or Lakanto (note 1)
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Xanthan Gum (note 2)
  • 1/3 Cup Warm Water
  • 1/2 Cup Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Thai Fish Sauce


  • 2 - 8 Ounce Packages Shirataki Noodles fettucini style
  • 1/4 Cup Sesame Oil
  • 2 Small Shallot thinly sliced
  • 3 Cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 Bell Pepper thinly sliced
  • 1-2 Thai Chilis minced. Can sub for jalapeño peppers
  • 8 Green Onions cut into 2" pieces
  • 1 Pound Chicken Breast boneless + skinless
  • 1 Cup Fresh Basil roughly chopped


  • Make the sauce. Add warm water (1/3 cup), erythritol (2 teaspoons), and xanthan gum (1/8 teaspoon) to a bowl and whisk until dissolved. Be sure to sprinkle the xanthan gum over the top, otherwise, it will clump (note 3). Add the soy sauce (1/2 cup)and fish sauce (1 tablespoon), and whisk. Set aside.
  • Rinse noodles. Rinse your shirataki noodles (2 - 8 ounce packages) thoroughly by draining them in a colander and running water over the top as your toss the noodles with your hands for at least 1 minute. Set aside to drain.
  • Sear. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken (1 pound) and sear each side (about 1-2 minutes) until golden (it won't be cooked through yet). Set seared chicken aside on a plate.
  • Saute. Add remaining oil to the skillet, along with the bell peppers (1) and shallots (2 small) and cook for two minutes. Add Thai chiles (1-2), garlic (3 cloves) and green onions (8), and cook for another 2 minutes, or until they become fragrant. Add the noodles and toss to coat in the veggies and oil. Fry for about 3 minutes (this helps remove any weird taste the noodles may have, don't skip).
  • Simmer. Add the chicken back to the skillet, as well as the sauce. Toss to coat everything. Bring sauce to a simmer and allow it to cook for about 5 minutes until the sauce thickens, the chicken is cooked through, and the veggies are tender to your liking.
  • Serve + enjoy! Remove from heat, stir in the basil (1 cup), serve warm, and enjoy!


  1. Lakanto and Swerve are equally as sweet as sugar. If using a different brand, you may want to add more erythritol (it's 70% as sweet as sugar).
  2. Xanthan gum is used to thicken the sauce so it coats the noodles. Only a little is needed, but it makes a big difference!
  3. Xanthan gum will clump if not added properly, so be sure to sprinkle lightly over the liquid, then quickly whisk to combine.
