Accidental Thai Noodles | The Paleo Diet

Special thanks and congratulations to Beth G., The Paleo Diet Recipe Contest Winner!

Accidental Thai Noodles are an epicurean dream blended with a medley of herbs and spices.


Serves 2-3

  • 2 Tbsp cashew butter (you can find it at any health store)
  • 3 Tbsp chicken broth
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp freshly grated ginger
  • 2 tsp tamari (gluten free soy sauce)
  • 1 tsp chili powder (or sub 1 tsp Paleo Sriracha)
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

Meat and Noodles

  • 2 large chicken breasts, cubed
  • 1 Spaghetti Squash
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp fresh garlic
  • 2 tsp freshly grated ginger
    • 4 scallions, chopped thinly
    • 1 Tbsp fish sauce
    • 1 Tbsp tamari (gluten free soy sauce)
    • 1/2 cup fresh chopped cilantro
    • Pepper, to taste



1. Slice the Squash Lengthwise, and using a spoon clean out the seeds and ‘guts’. Place in oven with open-face up and bake for 45-60 min, at 375 degrees.

2. In a bowl, whisk all dressing ingredients together and set aside so the flavors can marry

3. Melt the coconut oil in a skillet and add the chicken, garlic, scallions and ginger.  

4. Cook the chicken all the way through, and add remaining ingredients and stir.

5. Turn skillet down to low and add dressing.

6. When the squash is done, use a fork to pull out the ‘noodles’. They should easily pull out and fall into noodle-like pieces. Serve meat and dressing mixture over noodles.

Live Well, Live Longer.

  1. This recipe is fantastic! Even my reluctant husband loved it and had 2 helpings. The contrast of the sweet spaghetti squash with the spicy chicken is perfect! I don’t think I will ever cook regular noodles again.

  2. This recipe sounds soooooo amazing. I was wondering how I could use my spaghetti squash other than a side dish.

    I just had gastric sleeve surgery and am still on a liquid diet, but this will definitely be added to one of the “solid food” meals within the next month or so.
