Going gluten-free requires a bit of creativity when it comes to finding gluten-free alternatives to many of the ingredients we enjoy on a regular basis. This chicken pad thai recipe is the perfect example of how you can convert a favorite dish into a delicious gluten-free friendly meal.
Finding the right gluten-free substitute for your usual gluten-containing ingredients is a matter of personal taste, and involves experimenting with gluten-free flours and creative replacements.
To create this chicken pad thai recipe, we use spiralized zucchini as the pasta or noodle base for this meal. If you’ve never had spiralized zucchini, be open-minded to it as you’ll probably be surprised just how much you like this gluten-free substitute.
You can make your own spiralized zucchini with a spiralizer or you can buy fresh “zoodles,” as they’re sometimes referred to at your local natural foods store.
The resulting chicken pad thai dish will have fantastic flavor, while also being a low-fat and low-calorie meal.
