This Chicken Long Rice recipe is not only grain-free, but has just a handful of delicious ingredients that come together quickly for a great weeknight meal. With its Asian influence, this dish packs a lot of rich umami flavor and is highly versatile in terms of what kind of noodles you use. For those without dietary restrictions, classic rice noodles are a good choice, but corn- or wheat-based noodles can work too. For those on the autoimmune protocol, you can use spiralized veggies like zucchini, summer squash, or sweet potato or shirataki noodles, which are my personal favorite due to their close resemblance to rice noodles. Whatever you choose, this dish is sure to become a quick-and-easy favorite!
Struggling to Start the Autoimmune Protocol?
Living with chronic illness can be isolating enough without overhauling your lifestyle, often without the full support of family members who don’t want their diets to change. But you don’t have to go through it alone. SAD to AIP in SIX, from Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and author of The Alternative Autoimmune Cookbook Angie Alt, will coach you step-by-step through the transition from the standard American diet (SAD) to the autoimmune protocol (AIP). The six-week course includes coaching from Angie and her team, support from your peers in the program, and reference materials–it’s an incredible bargain compared to private health coaching sessions. If you’re struggling to make the change to the AIP or feeling isolated on your health journey, this is the program for you!
