Stir-fry Chicken and Rice Noodles Salad

After a weekend indulgence of fatty and sweet food, I decided to prepare something healthy. I checked my recipe book for salads, Good Eating Salads, which I bought several months ago, and found Chinese Chicken Salad which ingredients I had at home, though I had to tweak some a little bit, so I called mine, Stir Fry Chicken and Rice Noodles salad. On Monday evening, a bowl of delicious and healthy Stir Fry Chicken and Rice Noodles salad was my treat to myself.

Cooking Stir Fry Chicken and Rice Noodles was so easy with just basic ingredients. I still had left over rice noodles which I brought from Kolkata, and a piece of chicken breast in the fridge. I used cabbage and carrots for the veg. And I always have basic sauces like soy sauce, vinegar, olive oil. In the original recipe, the rice noodles was fried to be crispy, but since I wanted it to be healthy and also I feel that eating crispy noodles won’t make me full, I just blanched it instead in salted boiling water for a minute. If you’d like to try cooking Stir Fry Chicken and Rice Noodles, below is the recipe which I tweaked to my preference.

  4. Heat a wok over a high heat, then add the oil. Stir-fry the chicken for 4-5 minutes until brown and crisp. Remove the chicken from the wok and put on top of the vegetables and noodles.
