Chicken Faux Mein!

So I have been on a bit of a Chinese food kick lately. I decided to make something that resembled lo mein, but was a heck of a lot healthier for us. The cabbage in this dish really resembled curly noodles and my 2 year old ate them without even questioning their vegetable status. It also provided a nice sweetness to the meal, without adding any kind of sugars. The sauce on lo mein is typically soy sauce based, so use whatever substitute here that you would like.



Paleo Chicken Lo Mein

Coconut oil (for greasing the skillet)
2-3 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into thin strips
2 onions, minced
1-2 heads of cabbage, cut into noodle type shapes
1/4 cup cider vinegar
3/4 cup coconut aminos
1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
3 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
6 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tsp arrowroot powder


Heat a very large skillet over medium heat. Melt coconut oil, then cook chicken until almost cooked through. Add onion. Cook until onion is translucent. Add cabbage. Toss to combine. Add vinegar, aminos, oil, ginger and garlic. Saute until cabbage is soft and tender. Add arrowroot and simmer for 2-4 minutes more. Serve and enjoy!
