How To Make Shirataki Noodle Chicken Alfredo

How To Prepare Shirataki Noodles

Rinse the shirataki noodles with cold water to remove their unwanted natural smell before cooking. To cook the shirataki noodles, cook them in boiling water for 2-3 minutes and drain them out using a colander or strainer. You can use the same pot or saucepan to dry them completely or remove the excess moisture from boiling by stirring it around in medium-low heat. Set it aside until ready to combine with chicken alfredo sauce.

How To Make Chicken Alfredo Sauce

Heat up the cooked shredded chicken and season with salt and pepper; pour in the alfredo sauce. Stir it around, and your sauce should be ready when it’s heated thoroughly. You can give it a quick taste before combining it with the shirataki noodles and add more seasoning as needed.

How To Assemble Shirataki Noodle Chicken Alfredo

Combine your cooked shirataki noodles and warm chicken alfredo sauce and stir until the noodles are fully coated. You can use a serving bowl or plate and garnish with grated parmesan cheese and fresh basil leaves. Serve warm and enjoy!
