Shirataki Noodles with Chicken, Feta & Tomato

We pair shirataki noodles with feta and tomatoes in this quick and vibrant dinner recipe. The tomatoes release their juices to create a glossy sauce that clings to the noodles and carries with it the flavors of garlic, oregano and basil. Crumbled feta and Kalamata olives add a briny punch.

  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided

  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano

  • 2 (7 ounce) packages shirataki noodles, rinsed

  • ½ cup lightly packed fresh basil leaves, plus more for garnish

  • cup crumbled feta cheese

  • ¼ cup pitted Kalamata olives, halved lengthwise


  1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add the chicken to the pan; cook until golden brown and a thermometer inserted in the thickest portion registers 165°F, 5 to 7 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to a clean cutting board; do not wipe out the pan.

  2. Add tomatoes, garlic, oregano and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt to the pan; cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until the tomatoes have broken down and the garlic has softened, about 8 minutes. Stir in noodles, basil, feta and olives; remove from heat.

  3. Slice the chicken on the diagonal. Divide the noodle mixture among 4 bowls; top with the chicken. Garnish with additional basil, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
