Paleo Chicken Pad Thai

My mom has always been my valentine. She is the one love in my life that I know will never go away. This year she gave my a spiralizer. If you don't own one or know what it is you need to! It is a way to turn vegetables into noodles. I have made a cold cucumber "noodle" salad with it, zucchini noodles, sweet potato curly fries... this thing is awesome! She got mine at William Sonoma for less than $40. This recipe uses sweet potatoes to make the noodles, if you don't have the gadget you could use spaghetti squash, or a peeler to make threads of potato then cut them into smaller "noodles".

- 1-1.5 lbs Chicken breast (2-3)- cooked and chopped into cubes 
- 2 Large sweet potatoes
- 3 Green onions
- 3 eggs
- 3 Tblsp Sunbutter (or any other nut butter)
- 2 Tblsp Fish Sauce
- 2 Tblsp Coconut Aminos (or reduced salt gluten free soy sauce)
- 1 Tblsp Siracha (or red pepper flakes.... change this if you dont want it so spicy!)
- 3 tsp. White vinegar
- 1/2 Cup Coconut Palm Sugar
- 2.5 Tblsp Sesame Oil
- 2 Tblsp Olive Oil
- 3 Tblsp Lime Juice (about 1 lime)
- 1 tsp. Fresh minced ginger
- 1 Garlic clove (minced)
- cilantro to garnish (optional)
- 1/2 cup chopped roasted cashews to garnish (optional)

1. Peel and spiralize the sweet potatoes. 

2. Whisk the Sunbutter through garlic together and pour into a large skillet over medium heat- whisk occasionally.

3. When the sugar has dissolved and the sauce has a smooth consistency add the onion and sweet potatoes. Cook until the "noodles" are tender- about 8-10 minutes.
4. Make a "well" in the stir-fry- beat the eggs and scramble them in the pan. Once they are cooked mix them with the rest of the stir-fry. Add the chicken... mix again and eat!
