WWDH - Stir-Fried Noodles with Crispy Chicken



This week, my pick for Wednesday with Donna Hay was Stir-Fried Noodles with Crispy Chicken.  The recipe is from Off the Shelf, but has also been posted online here.

I couldn't find wheat noodles (as the recipe calls for), so I used rice noodles instead.  I don't think I coated my chicken thickly enough, as it certainly didn't develop a crispy outside.  In fact, I liked the latter batches of chicken that I coated and stir-fried better than the shallow fried version called for by the recipe.  The Chinese five spice still gives it a nice flavour.

This dish was nice enough, but not much different from what I would normally make for my usual stir fry but with less vegetables.  It is probably not a repeat.

It was the noodles that I liked. And I liked the lighter rice flour for dredging rather than the AP flour. All in all, okay.

It sounds worth a try if you have the ingredients to hand :)

Yes, the sound of the crispy chicken is obviously better than the reality!!
