Stir-fried Noodles

Wow, that is a huge picture. It really is! I haven not done a food related post in a while, so here goes nothing... A friend of mine from Singapore, you know who you are, makes the most amazing stir-fried noodles I have ever tasted so far.. especially the spicy hotness is an aspect I love about it! So, with a bit of his help I tried to recreate his dish so I could share it with you. After all, sharing is caring! 

I have to add that I used some ingredients he did not for his dish (the optional ones), so even though I think my first attempt at his dish didn't come close to how awesome his really was, it's a decent try and I just have to keep playing with the different ingredients and, especially, adding more chili's. 

First of all, you are going to need 1 onion, 2 or 3 garlic cloves, chili peppers to your liking, 3 tablespoons of soya sauce, 1 tablespoon of ketjap/kecap (really indonesian soya sauce, but it's sweet), 3 tablespoons of oyster sauce. Don't forget to get some extra spices to intensify the flavor: black pepper, laos (optional), chili, paprika, cayenne (optional). You will be using them for both the chicken and your soya mixture. You obviously shouldn't forget about the chicken filet and noodles. 

  1. Boil your noodles according to the prescribed recipe mentioned on the box it came from. Cut and saute the magical trio: onions, garlic and chili peppers. 
  2. Add the chicken filet, cut into smaller bits, to the magical trio and stir it. Then add the extra spices mentioned before: black pepper, chili and paprika. Don't forget a bit of salt! The optionals are possible, too. 
  3. Stir it all together and let it saute at a high temperature for about 5 minutes, so the chicken doesn't dry out. Then take it off the heat and move on the noodles. 

  1. Your noodles are probably done boiling by now, go check up on them! Then start with your sauce mixture. Add the 3 tablespoons of soya sauce and oyster sauce in a bowl. Don't forget about 1 tablespoon of ketjap. 
  2. Add the yummy spices: black pepper, laos (or galangal), chili, paprika, cayenne. Stir it all together and then let it sit for a bit. 
  3. Took out your noodles already? Add them to a hot wok pan and then bit by bit add your sauce to it and keep stirring it until it gets its yummy color. In the mean time, don't forget to add your chicken to the pan (or prepare the chicken in a wok pan, then add the noodles to it, then the sauce). In short: just mix the shit out of it all! Let it sit for a bit on low heat then take it off the heat. 

Serve and garnish as pleased! 

Side note: I didn't have any vegetables when making this dish, so bad, but bell peppers would go wonderfully with it. It also adds different colors! It's all about playing around with this dish, I haven't perfected it yet but it sure was yummy and I look forward to making it again, and again, and again! What about you? Do you like stir-fried noodles? How do you prepare them?
