Carb Conscious
Our Carb Conscious recipes provide a balanced approach to carbohydrate consumption by replacing refined carbohydrates from sources like white flour, rice, and cane sugar with high-fiber foods like fresh vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Our Carb Conscious recipes have 42g or less of net carbohydrates (total carbohydrates minus dietary fiber) per serving, a 25% reduction in net carbs compared to the average Blue Apron recipe served in 2019. Due to the natural variation in size of and contribution of produce in our recipes, some recipes can be badged as Carb Conscious at 45g or less net carbs per serving.

From the Test Kitchen

For six weeks, Blue Apron is thrilled to team up with Chrissy Teigen, author of the best-selling cookbook, Cravings, to bring you some of her favorite, insanely delicious recipes. These easy noodles get a punch of nutty sesame flavor—and a kick of heat—from a quick tahini and sambal sauce that brings together chicken, bok choy, and tender fettuccine.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the root end of the bok choy; roughly chop. Peel and roughly chop the garlic. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. 

Cook & chop the chicken:
2 Cook & chop the chicken:

Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken and cook 6 to 7 minutes per side, or until lightly browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board. When cool enough to handle, roughly chop. 

Make the sauce:
3 Make the sauce:

While the chicken cooks, in a bowl, whisk together the tahini, soy sauce, vinegar, honey (kneading the packet before opening), half the sesame oil, and as much of the sambal oelek as you’d like,  depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper. 

Cook & dress the noodles:
4 Cook & dress the noodles:

While the chicken continues to cook, add the noodles to the pot of boiling water; cook, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Turn off the heat. Reserving 1/2 cup of the noodle cooking water, drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Top with the remaining sesame oil; stir to coat.

Cook the bok choy:
5 Cook the bok choy:

To the pan of reserved fond, add the chopped bok choy and garlic and sliced white bottoms of the scallions (if the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil). Season with salt and pepper. Cook on medium-high, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Turn off the heat. 

Finish the noodles & serve your dish:
6 Finish the noodles & serve your dish:

To the pot of dressed noodles, add the chopped chicken, cooked bok choy, sauce, and half the reserved noodle cooking water. Cook on medium-high, stirring vigorously, 1 to 2 minutes, or until coated. If the noodles seem dry, gradually add the remaining cooking water to achieve your desired consistency. Turn off the heat and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve the finished noodles garnished with the sliced green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
