Low-Carb Thai Yellow Curry Noodles

Usually my husband has to eat something for a few minutes before delivering a verdict, but with this dish, the first bite hardly hit his tongue before he told me it was really good. Why get take-out noodles, full of carbs and calories, when you can easily make this delicious dish that is low-fat, gluten-free, low-carb, and grain-free? You can keep it vegan too by using crumbled tempeh instead of ground chicken. This is one dish you have to try! If you can't find Thai yellow curry powder or paste, use regular yellow curry powder and add 2 tbsp. of minced lemongrass (you can usually find it in the produce section at the grocery store already minced). This dish doesn't have to be spicy if you use a mild curry powder, but personally I love the heat!
