Let this Chicken Pad Thai with Zoodles be your go-to low-carb recipe the whole family will enjoy.

I am going to tell you a secret.  When you make this dish, there is no need to even mention the word zucchini.  Just let them eat it first, then surprise them with the zoodles.

Let this Chicken Pad Thai with Zoodles be your go-to low-carb recipe the whole family will enjoy.Somehow the jokes was on me when I was preparing this dish.

After chopping all the ingredients, and getting the dish started, I noticed that my upper lip started to get moist.  I swiped my finger across my nose and then washed my hands. But unfortunately, it was too late.

Let this Chicken Pad Thai with Zoodles be your go-to low-carb recipe the whole family will enjoy.Yes, there was an incredible burning sensation on my upper lip.  I was on Google trying to find home-made remedies to get rid of the incredible hot pepper burn.  I literally dipped a towel into a cup of milk and compressed it onto the burn area.  This lasted approximately 15 minutes.  But nothing could stop me from eating this dish, and in between milk soaks, I was sopping up every last bite of this dish.

  9. I love zoodles! I feel you on the pepper burns, too. I was making hot sauce then for some explicable reason I decided to scratch the skin next to my eye. All I can say is I’m so thankful I didn’t touch my actual eye! 😛

  12. If I weren’t allergic to zucchini I’d be all over this. My husband loves Pad Thai. I could always de-fool it and use your recipe with rice noodles. I’ll try to avoid touching my face though. 😉

I love hearing from my readers!
