Ingredients
  • 1 pound package Fettuccine Shirataki
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1¼ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup of dry white wine
  • ½ cup chicken stock
  • 1½ cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • 1½ tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon sherry vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon salt and more salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Drain and rinse Shirataki Noodles very well. Place on paper towels to dry.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium high. Season the chicken pieces generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add the chicken pieces, spreading them out initially and then not stirring them, so they have an opportunity to brown.
  3. When pieces are browned on both sides, and just cooked through, remove to a paper towel lined plate.
  4. Deglaze the pan with white wine. Use a wooden spoon to scrape up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add the chicken stock and let liquids reduce by half (turn up the heat if necessary).
  5. Add the cream, mint, thyme, lemon zest, honey, salt, and vinegar. Reduce the sauce by half again.
  6. Add Fettuccine Shirataki to cream sauce when cream sauce has been reduced by half and is thick enough to coat a spoon.
  7. Add chicken to the pasta and sauce. Add more salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Serve immediately.
  9. Garnish with a little chopped fresh mint and thyme.
