Instructions

Add chicken to a small mixing bowl and season with Braggs and red pepper and set aside.

Add all sauce ingredients to blender and combine, adjusting ratios for taste if desired, and set aside.

Heat two skillets with sesame oil and add eggs to one, and chicken to the other. Scramble eggs until cooked and sauté chicken until cooked through.

Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add oil, pepper, onions, cabbage, and bell pepper. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring/tossing frequently. Add carrots and collard greens and sauté for another 2 minutes. Then add Pad Thai sauce and continue to sauté over medium heat until warmed through and collards are slightly wilted - about 3 minutes - stirring frequently.

Divide veggie noodles between serving plates, top with chicken, eggs, fresh cilantro, sunflower seeds, and drizzle with remaining sauce from pan.
