How about some chicken for dinner?
Sorry if I got you all yolked up.
This chicken stir fry will make you feel better in a flash.
The noodle cake is so good. So is the yummy sauce.
My photos don’t let you appreciate how crispy the noodles are. Really good to serve with a stir-fry as a change from the usual steamed rice.
Noodle Cake With Spicy Peanut Chicken Stir-Fry
1 (9 ounce) package fresh Chinese noodles
4 green onions, sliced thin
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into 1/4″ slices
2 Tbs soy sauce
2 Tbs rice wine
3/4 cup chicken broth
2 tsp cornstarch
4 Tbs vegetable oil
2 serrano chilis, seeded and chopped
1 1/2 inch piece of ginger, cut into matchsticks
5 garlic cloves, sliced thin
1/2 cup roasted peanuts, chopped
1. Cook noodles in boiling water until tender, 3 minutes. Drain and toss with half of the green onion.
2. Toss chicken with 1 Tbs soy sauce and 1 Tbs rice wine and marinate 10 minutes.
3. Whisk remaining soy sauce and rice wine, broth and cornstarch together in a small bowl.
4. Heat 1 Tbs vegetable oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat until just smoking. Add noodles to skillet and press with a spatula into an even layer. Cook until crisp, 2-3 minutes. Place the back of a baking sheet pan over skillet and invert noodle cake onto sheet pan. Add another Tbs oil to skillet and slide in noodle cake. Cook this side until browned, about 2 minutes. Place noodle cake on serving platter, tent with foil.
5. Heat 2 tsp oil in skillet over high heat until smoking. Cook half of the chicken until lightly browned, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a clean bowl. Repeat with 2 tsp oil and remaining chicken. Transfer to bowl.
6. Add remaining 2 tsp oil, chiles, garlic, ginger and peanuts to skillet and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Return chicken and any juices to skillet. Stir in sauce mixture and cook until slightly thickened, about 1 minute.
7. Cut noodle cake in wedges, and sprinkle with remaining green onions. Serve with chicken

I just heard Dying In My Sleep, by Glasgow’s Randolph’s Leap, yesterday over at Play A Song For Me
I adore the beginning of the song (could listen over and over it is so cool), but then it only gets better.
