Oodles of Noodles


There's no real recipe to this one, just the right spices.

All you need is fresh egg noodles - available in any good supermarket.  Buy enough for two or four people.  Don't be getting involved in making this for loads of people as your wok will be over crowded and they will be stodgy.

You will need:
a wok - non stick
2 chicken breast fillets - thinly sliced

For the marinade:
2 teaspoons of cornflour 
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
1 tablespoon of Shaoxing (Chinese rice wine)  

Other ingredients:
vegetable oil for stir frying
a good handful per person of vegetables - for example, bell peppers, red onions, spring onions, carrot, white cabbage - all thinly sliced
an handful of beansprouts
a few baby pak choi leaves - halved down the center lengthwise
2 or 3 tablespoons of gochujang - depending on how spicy you want it
2 tablespoons of tonkatsu sauce
a splash of soy sauce
white pepper to taste


How to do it:
Mix the marinade ingredients together in a small bowl and stir in the sliced chicken.  Make sure they are coated well.  Set aside for about 15 minutes.

When you're ready to cook, drain the chicken from the marinade.
Heat up a little oil in your wok and throw in the chicken.  Stirring all the time until it is just cooked.  Remove the chicken and set aside.

Now add a little more oil to your wok and heat it up again.
Add all the prepared vegetables (apart for the pak choi) as that will cook in seconds.

Stir fry for a minute of so and then add the tonkatsu, gochujang and a splash of soy sauce.
Now add in the noodles and keep stirring.  if they stick together add a tiny amount (say 2 teaspoons) of water.  Stir and they will separate.

Now put the chicken back in to heat up.  Put the pak choi in and it will wilt quite quickly.  

Have a taste and add a pinch or two of white pepper.  You can add more tonkatsu or gochujang if you think you need to.

Once it's piping hot, serve immediately.

  1. Too many of your ingedients are not available where I live, but we have other wonderful items that I can use instead. Thanks for the inspiration, off to the market. I'm thinking some kind of fusion Sechuan/Yemenite dish tonight!
