Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound rice noodles
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into bite-size pieces

Sauce:

  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • Juice of 1/2 lime

Garnish (use any/all toppings):

  • 1 Persian (mini) cucumber chopped or julienned 
  • 1 handful mint chopped
  • 1 small carrot grated, spiralized, or julienned 
  • Scallions (green parts) chopped, to taste
  • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts 
  • Red pepper flakes to taste
  • Lime wedges

Instructions

  1. Boil a pot of water and cook noodles according to package directions until they're just tender.

  2. Meanwhile, add the sauce ingredients to a small bowl, and then prep the garnish ingredients and set aside.
  3. Add the oil and chicken to a skillet or wok. Cook on medium-high heat for 5 minutes, stirring often. 

  4. Add the sauce to the pan and give it a good stir to coat the chicken. Cook for an additional couple minutes, stirring often, or until the chicken is cooked through (but don't overcook). The sauce will thicken up.
  5. Once the noodles are done, drain them and add to the pan. Toss with the chicken (I use tongs). You can either add the garnish ingredients right to the pan or to each bowl when you plate it. 
  6. Eat it immediately or enjoy cold as a noodle salad. 

Recipe Notes

  • I used A Taste of Thai straight cut rice noodles. If your noodles are cooked before the rest of the dish is ready, I suggest tossing them with a bit of oil so they don't stick together as much.
  • Makes 4 reasonable-size portions. If you're really hungry, you may want to serve it with something else or just feed 2-3.
