Lander Chiropractic Weekly Recipe (9/25/2017): Creamy Garlic Chicken & Sweet Potato Noodles

Note: To create this type of vegetable noodle, please use a spiralizer.  Amazon sells these for as low as $15 dollars. The spiralizer allows you to have a choice of the size of noodle and it takes less than 5 minutes to make your own noodles. Initially, we tried different ways to create noodles and wound up having disastrous results from less than tasty noodles to lack of consistency to injuries – TRUE STORY. Save yourself the hassle and learn from our mistakes.
