Chicken and Sweet Potato "Noodles"

Chicken is a staple in our household.  It is relatively cheap, can be made in numerous ways and is a healthy protein source so it is used a lot in recipes at our house.

Now when it comes to vegetables, a fun way to make them is to spiralize them (which is what this recipe calls for with the sweet potatoes).  You can pretty much spiralize any vegetable or starch.  This is a great alternative to your typical pasta noodles to help lower the carb content of your meals and makes food fun.  I use this spiralizer, but there are many others on the market.


2 tbsp coconut oil
2 pounds of chicken breasts, cubed
2-3 sweet potatoes
3/4 can of coconut milk
2 tbsp of butter, melted
Sea Salt
Black Pepper


  1. In a large pan, place the coconut oil in the center and turn on to a medium heat.
  2. Place the cubed chicken in the pan and cook it, turning the chicken throughout so that it does not burn.
  3. While the chicken is cooking, peel and spiralize the sweet potatoes.
  4. In a bowl, mix the sweet potatoes, coconut milk and butter together.
  5. When the chicken is cooked, add into the pan the coconut milk, butter and spiralized sweet potatoes and cover the pan.
  6. Bring to a boil then reduce to medium heat for at least 15 minutes or at least until the sweet potatoes have been reduced and are no longer crunchy.  Stir periodically so that the sweet potatoes do not burn to the pan.
  7. Remove lid and simmer for 5-10 minutes.
  8. Remove from heat and add salt and pepper to taste.


  • You can always add different spices such as red pepper flakes or even hot sauce if you like your meals to have a little kick to it.  
  • When you purchase the canned coconut milk, turn the can over so that the coconut juice and the coconut "fat" mix together in the can before opening it.
  • This recipe is very versatile so the additional ingredients are endless. 

Have you spiralized any vegetables yet?  If so, why kind and how did you use them?
