Buffalo Chicken Bacon and Sweet Potato Noodle Skillet Gluten Free Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • Homemade seasoned salt and pepper (see Notes)
  • 1 large sweet potato (or 2 small ones), peeled and spiralized
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup gluten-free buffalo sauce (adjust to your desired spice level)
  • 2 tablespoons chicken broth
  • 2 green onions, chopped

Instructions

1. Prep the spice mix: If making homemade seasoned salt, combine your favorite herbs and spices like parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, dried chives, etc.

2. Cook the bacon: In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the chopped bacon until crispy. Remove the bacon and set aside, leaving the rendered bacon fat in the skillet.

3. Brown the chicken: Add the chicken pieces to the hot skillet with the bacon fat. Season generously with your seasoned salt and pepper. Cook until the chicken is browned on all sides and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.

4. Cook the sweet potato noodles: Add the olive oil and spiralized sweet potato noodles to the skillet. Season with more seasoned salt and your preferred herbs. Sauté for 3 minutes, tossing frequently to ensure even cooking.

5. Simmer and combine: Add the water to the noodles and cook until al dente, about 1-2 more minutes. Return the chicken and bacon to the skillet, along with the buffalo sauce and chicken broth. Sauté for another minute until the noodles are tender and everything is heated through.

6. Garnish and serve: Sprinkle with the chopped green onions and any additional bacon you want as a topping. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes

Homemade seasoned salt: You can customize your mix based on preferences. Consider adding paprika, onion flakes, dried dill, etc.

Gluten-free: Ensure your buffalo sauce and chicken broth are gluten-free.

Spice level: Adjust the amount of buffalo sauce according to your desired heat level.

Alternative noodle options: If you don’t have sweet potato noodles available, you can consider zucchini noodles (“zoodles”) or even rice noodles for a different texture.
