Chicken Hot Chili Noodles

I have become a big fan of using rice noodles in Asian dishes. They are much lighter than pasta and have a great soft texture. I mostly use them when I make pad thai. However, last night I decided make a new dish using rice noodles. This dish is based off of the hot pepper noodles recipe from Bon Appetite. I was a bit skeptical of this dish when I started making it. I thought it would be overwhelmed by the chili garlic sauce but the sauce had a subtle heat and great flavor. The oyster sauce, soy sauce,ans chili sauce blend well together. This quick and easy dinner is great to make during the week. Enjoy!

Hope everyone is doing well. I’ve been messing around with this recipe for a while now and have finally found the perfect balance between heat and flavor. While this soup is spicy it is in no way over powering. I have found that rib eye works best in this soup but skirt or flank steak can also be used. The most important part of making this soup is making sure it does not boil once the beef stock is added. If it boils the broth will become cloudy and the beef will be on the tougher side. If you make it I hope you enjoy it! Tomorrow is pancake day in England so stay tuned for an early morning post so you can make them tomorrow evening!

Spicy Asian Chicken with Rice Noodles

Spicy Chicken with noodles

It looks like Tuesday is becoming my experimental day in the kitchen. Today I was really in the mood for some kind of Asian dish but I couldn’t decide on what to make. In the end I decided to go with a spicy chicken and noodle dish. I found a few recipes for something similar to this but did not stick to one recipe tonight. The sauce is made up of garlic, ginger, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, garlic chili sauce, and some sesame oil. I decided to use peppers and broccoli as the vegetable in this dish. The broccoli soaks up the sauce very well and tasted incredible. The rice noodles make this dish very light and do not fill you up like pasta would. Like I said I came up with this while I was messing around with your typical Asian ingredients so if you are going to give something like this a try just keep tasting throughout and it should turn out great.
