Thai is seriously one of my all time favorite takeout dishes. Not only do I love it, but so does Joel. You know me, I’m always on a mission to recreate our favorite comfort dishes in a healthy way. Well y’all, I did it again, my brand new Faux Keto Chicken Thai Noodles is just as good or maybe even better than the takeout version.
This recipe is a spin and inspired by the traditional Thai recipe. I took inspiration from the flavors, but used ingredients that were also Keto, Paleo, Whole30, Dairy Free and Gluten Free.
Ingredients Needed for this Keto Chicken Thai Noodles:
- Natural Heavens Spaghetti Noodles
- Cooked chicken
- Garlic cloves
- Red bell pepper
- Green onion
- Yellow onion
- Sesame seed oil
- Coconut aminos
- Almond butter, no sugar added
- Rice vinegar
- Ground ginger
- Garlic powder
- Sesame seeds
- Red pepper flakes
How to make:
Heat a large skillet over medium/high heat. Add in the sesame seed oil along with the minced garlic and onions. Cook until the onions are translucent, around 2-3 minutes. Transfer the red bell peppers and cooked chicken and cook together for another 3 minutes.
Meanwhile, add a small sauce pan over medium heat and add in all of the almond sauce ingredients. Cook on medium heat until combined. Around 2 minutes or so.
Transfer the 2 packages of Natural Heaven Spaghetti Noodles to the large skillet with the onions, garlic, chicken and red bell peppers. Mix together and cook for 2 minutes. Pour the almond sauce and lime juice over the noodles and combine with a spoon. Sprinkle in the green onions and cook with a lid on for another 2-3 minutes or until the sauce is nice and combined.
Garnish with chopped cashews, fresh cilantro, sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. Enjoy!
What are Hearts of Palm Noodles?
I’m super excited I found Hearts of Palm Noodles. They are literally life changing and tastes so much like real noodles. They aren’t mushy and really hold their shape well. In my opinion, they are the closest thing to noodles out there. I buy from Natural Heaven and absolutely love their product and mission. They carry Angel Hair, Lasagna and Spaghetti.

While I didn’t have cooked chicken ready, the sauce sounded so appetizing that I forged ahead without the chicken. This dish was FABULOUS! I often make your dishes because they’re quick but filling and love that they’re often keto too. Specifically this was the perfect blend of Asian inspired takeout taste with healthier ingredients. Another great recipe I’ll make again and again!
This is so great! Thank you Camille!
Oh my goodness this is delicious! The picky hubs even loved it! I think that we will use just one package of the hearts of palm noodles next time (or double chicken and peppers.) I used peanut butter because we are out of almond but otherwise followed to a “t”! Always love your recipes!! Thanks!
Aww thanks so much Halley!! Means so much to hear that my creations are helping with time saved and tastebud explosions. Always so nice to hear that a recipe is now a favorite. Happy eating Halley.
