OMG pasta made from chicken!

I gotta try this...Just say on Racheal Rae...Frozen chicken, Ice cubes and egg white powder in a blender til a smooth puree...Put in squeeze bottle and squeeze into boiling water...Makes chicken pasta. This could be a break through recipe for low carbers.

Interesting, but how does it tasted?
I wonder what the texture is like?
Were they trying to make a low carb pasta?

I say go to her web site and watch the video...looks so easy and looks like spaghetti...can't taste bad it's chicken and egg whites after all. The ice and frozen chicken are to keep the mixture cold enough to stand up to the hot water...otherwise it would just melt in I would think...the video is only 1.5 minutes long and the pasta part is right in beginning...first 30 seconds.You will have to check out web site for exact recipe anyway, as I don't know it and they didn't specify amounts on tv.

I also saw the show. The mixture was made in a vitamin not a regular blender. I think that if folks tried to make this dish in a regular blender they would be disappointed.

I think the professional chefs use transglutaminase ('meat glue'). There's some controversy about it (not health-wise, more political, but too long to get into here), but you can apparently do some cool stuff with it. "Shrimp noodles" is one I saw.

Lots more info here:

Chicken Spaghetti Noodles

Anyone just see on Rachel Ray the Chicken Pasta? Recipes to "fool" your guests on the April Fool's show. He took frozen chicken breast chunks and put them in a food processor or blender with egg white powder and some ice and made a paste. He then put the emulsion into a squirt bottle and squirted swirls into hot water in a pot. He then raised the temperature of the water and finished cooking the "pasta".
Low carb, high protein, gluten free. Interesting.

I think you could crush your ice before adding it if you don't have a powerful blender. I have an ice crusher, but my blender isn't a vitamix..I got the stuff..Need to try it soon..
Not tonight, but maybe tomorrow..

Waiting for our expert chefs here..I know that Charski has a Vitamix....

Okay, I did it..Crushed the ice and mixed it up in my Bullet. The hardest part was squeezing it out..I do think that a pastry bag with a small tip (or plastic bag with a cut corner) would work just fine.

It was good, but needed salt. Of course, you could add the salt after you cooked it.

I did get some strings, then my squeeze bottle wouldn't squeeze anything out, so I think plan B is in order..

I got a pastry squeeze bottle..Maybe the ketchup one would work better although you might have to have the whole thing full of chicken to have it work.

It sounds like ground up boiled chicken to me, just something that looks like pasta but isn't. I'll pass on this one.

Interesting!

When I started reading this... my first thought was "this sounds like something Cleochatra would dream up!" LOL

I'm off to try to find it on Rachael Ray's website.

Carolyn... can you give us more description of how it turned out? Is it something you would make again? Serve to family?

Stawberry...It is good and once I get the hang of making the "pasta" in a string in the boiling water, it will be great. He makes it look very easy..

Any particular part of the chicken that is better for this? I have frozen thighs and boobs.

Chicken breasts, chopped up in nickel/quarter sized chunks..It is best if you watch the video on Rachel's show..I believe it was Monday's show..

Hint: the name of the dish on Rachael Ray's website using the chicken-pasta is "Rocco DiSpirito's Pasta al Pomodoro" from the Monday April 1 show.

They give you NO clue in the title that the pasta is made from chicken, and I was clicking around forever trying to find the recipe!

I didn't realize it, but Food Network actually has a recipe for shrimp noodles using the 'meat glue' I mentioned above. I wonder if the egg whites in RRs version are actually just taking the place of the transglutaminase.

Along the same idea, there's also this modernist recipe using Methocel additive to create mushroom noodles. This one is done at the table, as the preparation stays liquid when cool and when squirted into hot soup broth at the table by the diner, it cooks into noodles. Methocel A4C Instant Mushroom Noodles - Modernist Cooking Made Easy

I may have to try the chicken version with the egg whites.

would baby food chicken with egg whites work? then you wouldn't have to ruin a blender.

baby food chicken is a small amount to play around with anyway.

Deb..I thought of baby food, too..Hey, it might work, but you would have to use a lot of it, I think.

These do taste like chicken after cooked so I would probably use with an alfredo type or mushroom sauce...or they would be great in chicken soup.

Not sure if I would like with marinara.

But beef noodles made this way could be interesting with marinara.

Here is the video and the recipe for making this pasta using just chicken, egg white powder and ice cubes. I have not tried it yet but I am going to make it for dinner tonight. This is another wonderful Rocco DiSpirito (celebrity chef) recipe. He has lost a ton of weight himself and he has some new cookbooks showing what ingredients to use as substitutes to create low carb and high protein meals and snacks and desserts.

google: rachaelrayshow Rocco DiSpirito's Pasta al Pomodoro

I am really excited to try these noodles with my pasta recipes. I'm looking forward to trying them in soup too.

I bet that would be good as chicken soup noodles if nothing else.
