Easy and Delicious Chicken Noodle Recipe

Inspired by the restaurant chain OodlesN'Oodles in Birmingham, they have a dish on the menu called Oodles Fried Noodles, love it! 

There's no real recipe to this one, just the right spices. Gochujang can be found in Morrisons and Asda for a little as £2.50 a tub. 

Then all you need is fresh egg noodles - available in any good supermarket.

Tonkatsu sauce is available in any good oriental supermarket or over on Amazon.

Buy enough for two or four people, but don't be getting involved in making this for loads of people as your wok will be overcrowded and the noodles will become stodgy.

Oodles of Noodles

Both Gochujang and the Tonkatsu sauce are available from and good oriental food store.
Prep time: 10 MinCook time: 6 MinInactive time: 15 MinTotal time: 31 Min


  • 2 chicken breast fillets - thinly sliced
  • 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
  • a handful of bean sprouts
  • a few baby pak choi leaves - halved down the centre 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
For the marinade
  • 2 teaspoons of cornflour
  • 1 tablespoon of soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of Shaoxing (Chinese rice wine)


  1. Mix the marinade ingredients together in a small bowl and stir in the sliced chicken.
  2. Make sure they are coated well. Set aside for about 15 minutes.
  3. When you're ready to cook, drain the chicken from the marinade.
  4. Heat up a little oil in your wok and throw in the chicken. Stirring all the time until it is just cooked.
  5. Remove the chicken and set aside.
  6. Now add a little more oil to your wok and heat it up again.
  7. Add all the prepared vegetables (apart for the pak choi) as that will cook in seconds.
  8. Stir fry for a minute or so and then add the tonkatsu, gochujang and a splash of soy sauce.
  9. 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.
  10. Now put the chicken back in to heat up.
  11. Put the pak choi in and it will wilt quite quickly.
  12. Have a taste and add a pinch or two of white pepper. You can add more tonkatsu of gochujang if you think you need to.
  13. Once it's piping hot, serve immediately.


If you can't get Tonkatsu - it can (kind of) be made by mixing together the following:

1 tbsp ketchup

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

½ tbsp oyster sauce

1 tsp caster sugar

  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!

  2. I was looking for Shaoxing at our local Asian market but had to settle for sake. I will still keep mu eues peeled as it looks like I will need it.

  3. Oh my word, this is a comforting bowl of noodles......I love the crunchy bits in between the silky soft noodles!!

  4. Your food was/is always very tasteful but with your new camera and all, the food is Jan-tastic!
