This noodle bowl is so fresh and delicious, you won’t miss the grain based variety a bit.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken thighs
  • 1 teaspoon salt-free Chinese five-spice powder
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 cups unsalted chicken stock
  • 1 1-inch piece ginger, peeled and cut into matchstick-size pieces
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 4 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stems removed and sliced
  • 5 ounces fresh baby spinach, roughly chopped
  • 2 hard-cooked eggs, halved lengthwise
  • Sliced scallions
  • Crushed red pepper (optional)

Instructions

To make zucchini noodles, use a julienne slicer or spiralizer to cut zucchini into thin slices. Set zucchini noodles aside.

Preheat broiler. Rub chicken thighs with five-spice powder; sprinkle with black pepper. Place chicken thighs on a foil-lined baking sheet. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat 8 to 10 minutes or until done (175°F), turning once halfway through broiling. Let stand 10 minutes. Slice chicken and set aside.

Meanwhile, in a large saucepan combine stock, ginger, and garlic. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Add mushrooms; simmer, uncovered, 2 minutes. Add zucchini noodles; simmer 1 minute. Remove saucepan from heat. Add spinach; stir just until wilted. Stir in chicken.

Divide among four bowls; top with hard-cooked egg halves and scallions. If desired, sprinkle with crushed red pepper.

  1. I made this for dinner last nite (altho’ I did use shirataki tofu noodles, in addition to thinly sliced zucchini) and we LOVED it! Will definitely put it in serious rotation.

    Do you have the nutritional information available?

    Thanks.

  2. New to Paleo..need to lose 25-30 mlbs. pr doctor. He recommended the Paleo lifestyle. Since I am on a fixed income and cannot always purchase grass-fed meats, is this way of eating still doable?

    Thank you so much
