Low Carb Tom Yum Chicken Noodles

I’m posting this soon after my low carb tom yum shrimp noodles, as I want to use up the leftover lemongrass, mushrooms & kaffir lime leaves. This time round, I use boneless chicken thigh instead of shrimp.

Note: I’m reusing some of the photos from my low carb shrimp tom yum noodles recipe. 

Marinated Boneless Chicken Thigh
First, marinate bite-sized chicken chunks (I’m using boneless chicken thigh) in a bit of fish sauce, soy sauce & white pepper for 15 minutes.

Shirataki Noodles
This is my packet of shirataki noodles aka konjac (Japanese yam) noodles. These noodles are nicknamed “miracle noodles” as they contain zero calories. I got mine from Sheng Siong for S$1.95 per pouch. The water in the pouch should be discarded as it has a “fishy” smell after being soaked in the konjac.

Cooking Shirataki Noodles
To completely get rid of any fishy smell, boil the shirataki noodles in a pot of clean water for 2-3 minutes before using. Set aside the drained noodles after rinsing them in cold tap water. As an alternative to boiling, you can soak the noodles in hot water for 5 minutes instead. I prefer to boil them.

Lobo Instant Tom Yum Paste
This is my packet of instant tom yum spice. I’m using this recently as it is a single use portion. You can use any favourite brand of tom yum spice and season to taste.
