This Chicken Noodle Stir Fry is packed with veggies for a nutrient dense, one-pot meal that is the epitome of AIP comfort food. It’s AIP and paleo and can easily be made vegan and whole30 compliant.
Stir frys are some of my favorite meals because they’re quick, you can load them up with veggies, and they’re so comforting – especially when they include noodles. The AIP community has been blessed lately with some new AIP-compliant pastas on the market. But you can just as easily make this dish with some spiralized zucchini or butternut squash, or spaghetti squash!
This Chicken Noodle Stir Fry is packed with all the veggies including mushrooms, carrots, broccoli and cabbage. Together with coconut aminos, ginger, cilantro and green onions add a bright and zesty flavor profile to this stir fry. I’ve used chopped chicken breasts in this recipe, but you could easily sub with beef, or another protein of your choice – including ground meats!
Here’s how you make this Chicken Noodle Stir Fry:
- Prepare vegetable noodles or cook pasta to al dente, strain and run under cold water to stop from cooking.
- Make marinade out of coconut aminos, oil, cilantro, green onions, garlic, ginger and sea salt in a food processor. Marinate sliced chicken breast strips with 3/4 of the marinade for at least 20 minutes while you prepare the veggies.
- Once marinated, cook chicken in two batches, spreading it out evenly into your pan so that the chicken browns nicely on each side. Remove chicken from pan and set aside.
- Turn heat up to medium-high and add vegetables to pan in order of size/firmness. You don’t want any mushy vegetables! Add remaining marinade to pan along with chopped cilantro and sea salt and cook no more than 2-3 minutes.
- Finally, return chicken strips to pot, along with pasta and coconut aminos. Stir to combine. Taste for salt and adjust accordingly.
- Serve hot and garnish with additional chopped cilantro, green onions and/or additional coconut aminos, if desired.
This Chicken Noodle Stir Fry is truly versatile! In addition to substituting the chicken breast for another protein of choice, you could omit altogether for a vegetarian/vegan side dish. You can also make this dish with other AIP-approved veggies like as bok choy and cauliflower.
