Sweet Potato Noodles with Chicken and Tomato Basil Sauce

Last week was one of my busiest weeks – on Monday, I flew to Kansas City for an exciting project I’m working on.

After spending all day Tuesday on my feet in a test kitchen, I flew back to New Jersey that evening.

Wednesday, I had meetings during the day and then that evening, 5-10:30pm, I taught an Inspiralized cooking class!

Sweet Potato Noodles with Chicken and Tomato Basil Sauce

What a blast that was! I’ve been slowly posting some of the photos that my wedding photography, Nadya Furnari, took. The class was entirely spiralized – all recipes made from the blog! It took place at Hudson Table in Hoboken, NJ.

We made my Shredded Kale, Brussels Sprouts and Pear Noodle salad, my Pesto Zucchini Noodle Stuffed Bell Peppers, my Bikini Bolognese with Sweet Potato Noodles and then ended it all with my Zucchini Noodle Chocolate Chip Muffins.

The class was BYOB and everyone drank wine and made deliciously healthy spiralized meals, using the Inspiralizer!

On Thursday, Lu and I had a rehearsal dinner in the city and then on Friday, our friends got married in Battery Park. What a gorgeous ceremony and beautiful event – we danced our feet off! I do appreciate a good wedding photo booth.

So on Saturday, we woke up at 12pm. I can’t remember the last time I slept in that late – I think I was 23!

Long story short, it was an exciting, jam-packed week and now, although I’m traveling again Thursday – Sunday of this week, I’m excited to make some healthy spiralized meals – quick, easy ones!

Sweet Potato Noodles with Chicken and Tomato Basil Sauce

That brings me to today’s recipe: I make this recipe a lot during the fall and winter. It’s the first time I’ve made it this fall season and I’m excited to bring it back into rotation.

I use my favorite clean-eating friendly tomato basil sauce (Rao’s Tomato Basil), cook chicken with oregano, salt and pepper and serve it with sauteed sweet potato noodles.

The sweetness of the tomatoes brings out the inherent sweetness of the sweet potatoes and works deliciously with the savory chicken. This dish is packed with fiber, protein and flavor!

I hope you try it for yourself and work it into your own rotation – it takes less than 30 minutes and it can all be prepped in advance!

Sweet Potato Noodles with Chicken and Tomato Basil Sauce

Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time25 mins
Servings: 2

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 pound boneless chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1 cup Rao’s tomato basil sauce or favorite tomato sauce brand
  • 1 tablespoon chopped curly parsley to garnish
  • optional: grated parmesan cheese to garnish

Instructions

  • Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and add in 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. While oil heats, season the chicken with salt, pepper, oregano and garlic powder. Once oil heats, add in the chicken. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink on the inside.
  • While chicken cooks, peel and then spiralize the sweet potato with Blade D on the Inspiralizer. Set aside.
  • Set the chicken aside on a plate and cover to keep warm. Then, carefully wipe down the skillet and add in the other tablespoon of olive oil. Then, add in the sweet potato noodles, season with salt and pepper and cook, tossing frequently, until al dente, about 7 minutes.
  • While sweet potato noodles cook, place a small pot on medium heat and heat up the tomato basil sauce. Let simmer while sweet potato noodles finish cooking.
  • When sweet potato noodles are done, divide onto two plates. Top the noodles with tomato basil sauce and then chicken. Garnish with parsley and optional parmesan cheese.

I am preparing this recipe - sweet potato noodles with chicken. The recipe specifies blade D, but the picture looks like blade C was used. I am using Blade D, but wonder if this was a typo. Thanks
Ali Maffucci says:
It's Blade D on the Inspiralizer!
Nettie White says:
I sent you an email explaining my confusion. My knob is off - My D is your blade A and makes discs. I made matchsticks out of the discs and the recipe was delicious.
Anonymous says:
I gave a new Inspiralizer, and the D setting is making my sweet potatos look like wide crrly chips. I switched it to C and it's now making 'noodes' like the ones pictured in this recipe...(?)
Carolyn says:
This dish looks delicious and perfect opportunity to use my brand new Inpiralized spiralizer.
LINDA says:
Ali, I cannot wait to try this recipe. Hubby will get sweet potatoes at the store this afternoon, and I will make the recipe as soon as I go to Sprouts to get organic, range-fed chicken breasts. Yum, Yum!!! I love, love, love, my Inspiralizer. It is awesome.
Ali Maffucci says:
Sounds like the perfect evening! Enjoy!
Judy says:
Why is the fat percentage so high in the sweet potato recipe?
Anonymous says:
The olive oil.
Mmm! This meal would make a perfect dinner for me!
What has changed about this website such that I can no longer print out the nutrition panel nor a picture of the recipe. I still am able to print out the recipe.
Ali Maffucci says:
The nutritional information and images have never been printable - they are separate from the printable recipe. It's a change we're going to try to make soon!
Hillary says:
I really like when you post "intuitive" recipes like this. I call it intuitive because I have these ingredients at home.. and I would think to do something similar with leftovers! Last night I did a sauté of chicken sausage, one sweet potato spiralized, diced peppers/onions, ginger/garlic seasoning. It was a warm bowl of awesome!! LOL. Thank you for posting "real" recipes like this that are everyday, healthy and delicious. it really makes cooking on the fly easier
Cindy says:
Is there something done to the sweet potatos before they are put through the inspiralizer? Mine are always so hard that even with the ribbon disc, they break up. They won't go through the d disc to make noodles. Do they need parboiled? I'd love to try making noodles but the sweet potatos are not cooperating like a regular potato.
This looks healthy and delicious! Perfect for a weeknight dinner!
[…] aardappel noodles. Hoe lekker klinkt dat? Dit gerecht is perfect voor de herfst- en wintermaanden. Ik ben dol op de wat zoetere smaak van deze aardappel. […]
SUMIT SINGH says:
Dear sir/ma'am please give me any ideas for making nutritious new food products development.
Victoria says:
Will this work with zucchini? I don't like sweet potatoes. Thanks
Meaghan says:
Yes, of course! That would be great!

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...

a year and 5 days ago, I started @invisalign to correct my cross bite and fix some crowding on my lower teeth. 👄🦷 a few weeks into treatment, my dentist gave me some extra aligners (the clear trays that you wear that miraculously shift your teeth) “just in case” the Corona virus came to the US and the office has to shutdown. well, a LOT has happened in this past year (my teeth and bite have corrected and Corona certainly made its way here!) and today was the final appointment to perfect my teeth and bite with some veneers (which I haven’t quite gotten used to yet, but all of the stories you shared and kind compliments you gave in my DMs has made me feel A LOT better.) 😬⁣

in two weeks, I get my overnight retainers, which I’ll wear forever (but only to sleep.) aside from that, I’m done with #invisalign and it feels SO good. I cannot believe how drastically it has changed my face, and when I watch myself talk in a video or look at a photo of myself, I no longer cringe at my lisp or how crooked my face looks. it wasn’t something I was self-conscious of every day, but it’s definitely something that I noticed when looking at photos and it secretly bothered me. it’s silly, but it did! ⁣

now I can proudly say that I love my smile, and I feel more confident than ever. it’s a shame I’ll have to wear a mask and cover up this expensive smile 😂😂😂😂 but hopefully in 2022, I’ll be able to fully whip it out. right?!! 🤞🏼💉 ⁣

I’m going to write a blog post all about the process, share a ton of before and afters, but I wanted to ask.... are there any questions you have specifically that you’d like me to include/address? leave a comment below and let me know! and in the meantime, you can check out my Invisalign highlight for the whole journey!
