Asian inspired "Cooking the chef" reto

Today I am going to share another comfy bowl food recipe, which I have been trying for the Cooking the chef  March challenge. This month chef is a British food writer and TV chef Ching He Huang, very well known for her food television program Chinese Food Made Easy. 

Eating your food out of bowl is for me the most comfy way to enjoy the food. Asian food has been invented to be eaten out of bowl, which might be the main reason why I love Asian kitchen so much. I found also that most of Asian recipes are simple and easy to do, the only condition is, your kitchen is equipped with some Chinese cooking essentials and spices.

Stir fried noodles with chicken is the recipe I choose to make, what I like about this dish is the fact that this dish is done within 15-20 minutes, including the cutting of the vegetables and cooking the noodles. The recipe can vary depending on your taste, the choice of the vegetables it completely up to you, making sure you will end up with a delicious and comfy dish... served in the bowl and enjoyed at the sofa.

Stir fried noodles with chicken

  • 2 chicken breast
  • 1 teaspoon five Chinese spice
  • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
  • 0.5 tablespoon hot chili sauce
  • Chinese egg noodles
  • bell pepper
  • fresh green beans
  • carrots
  • sesame oil
  • light soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • fresh chives or coriander
Cook the noodles according to the pack description. Cut the chicken breast in thin slices. In a bowl put the cut chicken breast, five Chinese spice, dark soy sauce and hot chili sauce, mix well and set aside. Cut the vegetables in thin and equal slices. Add the cornstarch to the marinade chicken, mix well. Heat up your wok, add one tablespoon of vegetable oil, put in the chicken and fry for a minute or two...stir occasionally to make sure everything will get fried. Add the pre-cooked noodles and vegetables, bit of water and let it cook away for 2-3 minutes. Pour some of the light soy sauce to spice the dish and sprinkle some of the sesame oil over. Give it another stir, cut the chives and / or coriander and sprinkle over the dish. Serve in a bowl.
