Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450ºF.
  2. Place the sweet potato spirals on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  3. Slice the red onion and set aside with the zucchini spirals.
  4. Toss the sweet potato noodles with the avocado oil, Cajun seasoning, and sea salt. Set them aside while you prepare the chicken.
  5. Cut the chicken thighs up into bite-sized pieces. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat, when the pan is preheated add the avocado oil, cut up chicken, Cajun seasoning, and sea salt to the pan. Sauté the chicken until it’s no longer pink. Transfer it to a bowl and set aside.
  6. Place the sweet potato spirals in the oven to roast.
  7. While the sweet potato spirals are roasting sauté the prepared bell pepper, mushrooms, onion, zucchini, and garlic in the remaining 1 tablespoon of avocado oil until the veggies are just tender.
  8. When the sweet potato spirals have softened, but not turned to mush, about 8 minutes. Remove them from the oven and add them to the pan with the sautéed veggies. Add the sautéed chicken, chopped fresh tomatoes, and fresh cilantro.
  9. Cook just long enough to heat through and serve immediately!
