PALEO CHICKEN CARBONARA

Funny how you get cravings when you start Paleo.

I never actually liked Carbonara that much, but was craving it one day, so went looking for a Paleo alternative recipe.

This is my variation of it – delicious and you won’t even know the difference.

Instructions

  7. Over medium heat, whisk in the arrowroot powder to the bacon grease and let cook for a few minutes
  8. While the arrowroot cooks, combine eggs, coconut milk, oregano, basil, salt, pepper, parsley & garlic in a bowl until all yolks are fully incorporated.
  9. Pour egg mixture into the pan that you cooked the bacon in, stirring frequently.
  10. Add the chicken & cook until the mixture is still wet but cooked through (about 3 minutes)
  11. While this is cooking, blanch zuchinni in boiling water for appx 1 min.
  12. Slice bacon into about 1 cm wide strips & stir through the coconut milk/egg mixture.
  13. Strain zuchinni ‘spaghetti’ and place into serving bowls.
  14. Top with sauce, sprinkle on a little chopped parslely and a little parmesan cheese (naughty but nice!)
