Chicken Bacon Carobona w/ Shiritaki Noodles

This was SUPER good!

Note* You can use Ramen or Spaghetti instead of Shiritaki (tofu) noodles, but it will greatly increase the calorie content!)

Ingredients:
  • 1 bag House Foods Tofu Shirataki Spaghetti Shaped Noodle Substitute
  • 1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Original Swiss cheese
  • 1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
  • 1 tbsp. reduced-fat Parmesan cheese
  • 3 oz chicken tenderloins
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms (canned)
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 slices cooked and crumbled Turkey bacon
  • Optional: salt and black pepper to taste
Directions:
  1. Use a strainer to rinse and drain noodles well. Pat dry. In a microwave-safe bowl, nuke for 1 minute. Drain excess liquid. Dry thoroughly, using paper towels. Cut noodles up a bit. Set aside.
  2. Break cheese wedge into pieces, and place in a microwave-safe bowl. Nuke for about 15 seconds, and stir until smooth. Add egg substitute, Parmesan, and 2 tbsp. water, and whisk until mixed and almost smooth. Set aside.
  3. Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. If you like, lightly season chicken with salt and pepper. Add chicken, mushrooms, and garlic to the skillet, and cook until mushrooms are browned and chicken is mostly cooked through, about 2 minutes. (NOTE: I just cooked my chicken on my Foreman grill, or you could just boil it)
  4. Add noodles and bacon to the skillet, and toss u ntil mixed and hot. Reduce heat to lowest setting. Add cheese-egg mixture and immediately toss with other ingredients, until everything is coated and sauce has fully thickened. Add salt and pepper to taste, if you like. Enjoy!
The original recipe says this makes 1 serving, which would be fine for dinner, but at lunch, I eat lighter so I split this into 2 servings.
