Chili oil – especially homemade chili oil – is one of my favorite condiments…I use it in a variety of dishes from sautéed vegetables to grilled salmon to this keto Chili Garlic Noodles with  Chicken dish that I love. Garlic chili noodles recently became all the rage on social media and thanks to delicious and low-carb noodle options, this is a recipe we can enjoy as well!

The market for low carb and keto noodles seems to expand every month, with new options to choose from ranging from Konjac (a Japanese Yam) based noodles which are zero carb and practically zero calorie, to options made from pea protein, hearts of palm and other inventive and palatable creations. 

I typically use Konjac-based (aka Shirataki) noodles in my recipes – they are firm and hold up to sauces and heat, and in my opinion are closest to a real noodle in texture. For Asian-inspired dishes like this one, they work very well and mimic the rice or glass noodles you get in Asian restaurants. 

You can buy Chili Oil at the market, however I do prefer making it at home and it’s easy to make though it does require quite a few ingredients. I’ll post a recipe soon! While most chili oil is sugar-free, always check the label to make sure!

Coconut Aminos are a fantastic substitute for soy sauce – and I actually like the flavor much more. It’s less salty, but the flavors mimic soy sauce and is the perfect keto dupe in recipes.

Most Garlic Chili Noodle recipes are noodles only – no protein – however I like to add chicken and some baby bok choy for more substance, protein and vegetables. I’ll sometimes swap out the chicken for shrimp – play around with your favorite proteins!
