I have heard a lot about shirataki noodles and more specifically, the Miracle Noodles brand. For years, I have said I would try them out and I’m finally getting around to doing that. I whipped up my infamous Alfredo sauce recipe, added chicken and green veggies.

Carbs in this Alfredo Recipe

Yes, alfredo sauce is low carb if you prepare it yourself. Many store-bought alfredo brands are loaded with added sugar. The ingredients in this recipe result in 3 net carbs (just for the alfredo sauce) per serving.

How to Make Alfredo Sauce with Heavy Whipping Cream

I like to add cream cheese to my alfredo sauce. You can totally omit it if you wish. I add cream cheese for additional flavor. It also helps add a little additional fat for keto macros.

  1. Melt butter in a skillet.
  2. Allow the butter to melt and then add heavy whipping cream, cream cheese, shredded parmesan reggiano, and salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Stir continuously until the cheese has melted.cooked miracle noodles and keto chicken alfredo with broccoli and spinach in a skillet

Can I Eat Noodles on Keto?

You cannot have regular noodles with carbs. My favorite substitutes are these noodles, zucchini noodles, and spaghetti squash.

Are the Noodles Good For You?

The nutritional information alone supports that these noodles make a great alternative to your typical starchy noodles.

What are Shirataki Noodles Made of? Where Can I Get Them?

The noodles are made of Konjac flour, water, and lime water. Konjac flour is a fiber that comes from the Konjac plant. The Konjac flour can you help to improve digestive and is good for the intestine.

The fiber also makes you feel fuller longer. The noodles are vegan and gluten-free. You can find the noodles here on Amazon.

What Do the Noodles Taste Like?

They don’t have much taste. The noodles will carry the taste of the dish that you pair them with. In this case, alfredo sauce. There is a very noticeable TEXTURE. The texture is very slick, and could be described as rubbery. They don’t taste anything like rubber, but the texture is very on par.

What’s the verdict? Did I enjoy the noodles. I think they are ok. I prefer zucchini noodles and spaghetti squash to the miracle noodles. However, the miracle noodles aren’t bad. This exact recipe can be made with zoodles or spaghetti squash.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh broccoli You can also use frozen, steamable broccoli
  • 2-3 7oz packages Shirataki Fettuccini noodles I used 3 packages in this recipe. The noodles are fairly long in length. Use your judgment and decide if you want to cut them in half
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 chicken breasts, mine were about 16oz total sliced into cubes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • McCormick's Grill Mates Montreal Chicken Seasoning to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream, If you prefer a lot of cream sauce try 3/4 cup try 3/4 cup
  • 4 oz cream cheese, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan reggiano cheese shredded
  • 2 cups fresh spinach

Instructions

Steamed Broccoli

  • Slice the broccoli crown into small florets. 
  • Add an inch of water to a saucepan. Boil the water on high heat. The exact amount of water you will need will vary based on the size of your pan.
  • Add the broccoli to the water. Reduce the heat to low. Cover the pan and cook for 5-6 minutes until the broccoli is tender. You can test it by poking with a fork.

Shirataki Noodles Prep

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil with the 1/4 teaspoon of salt (high heat) on the stove. 
  • Remove the Shirataki noodles from the packaging. Place the noodles in a strainer and rinse them thoroughly with water for a couple of minutes. The noodles may have an odor when you remove them from the packaging. This is normal. Rinsing them really well will help remove that. When they cook, this will also disappear.
  • Add the noodles to the salted boiling water. Cook for 2-3 minutes. 
  • Remove the noodles from the boiling pot and dry the noodles thoroughly with paper towels.
  • Place a skillet on medium heat. Add the noodles to the pan. Stir the noodles in the pan for 2-3 minutes. This will help drain the excess moisture from the noodles. These steps are important, so the noodles aren't watery.
  • Remove the noodles from the pan and set aside.

Chicken Alfredo

  • Add the olive oil to the skillet. Next, add the chicken cubes and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cook for 4-5 minutes, flipping the chicken until the chicken is no longer pink.
  • Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside on a plate.
  • Add the butter and garlic to the skillet on medium heat. Allow the butter to partially melt and then add the chunks of cream cheese, Parmesan Reggiano, heavy cream, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Stir continuously until the cheese has melted. The cream cheese may take some time to dissolve.
  • Add the chicken, steamed broccoli, fresh spinach, and noodles to the pan. Stir to coat the noodles. Cook until the spinach wilts.
  • Cool before serving.

Notes

I like to add cream cheese to my alfredo sauce. You can totally omit it if you wish. I add cream cheese for additional flavor. It also helps add a little additional fat for keto macros.

I made this recipe last night and OMG it was AMAZING!! I did add about 1/4 cup of real bacon bits to it just to add that extra flavouring and to mimic the taste of one of my favorite alfredo dishes. The consistency of the sauce was perfect and I did add the extra cream just to make all the veggies and noodles more creamier. I can't wait to make this again and more of your recipes!
