Tuesday’s Ten Minute Thai Noodles with Chicken

31 08 2010

Time has been a hungry monster lately. No idea where it’s gone. Instead of lamenting about this fact however, I shall skip straight to the good stuff… And how can I be so sure it’s ‘good’? Rob gave this his first ever 9.5 / 10

This was also on our menu at our Silwood and Le Creuset evening a couple of weeks ago, and please forgive me for not having shared it with you sooner!

Ten Minute Thai Chicken & Noodles
Serves 4 | Shan’t insult you by putting down ‘preparation time’ like I usually do

150g pad Thai noodles (easily available in any grocery store)
Sesame oil
Peanut oil
400g deboned, skinless chicken thighs cut into strips
1 tsp each of chopped chilli, garlic and ginger
2 red peppers, sliced thinly
4 spring onions, sliced diagonally, including tops
4 handfuls baby spinach leaves
1 handful bean sprouts
4 Tbsp thai fish sauce
1 Tbsp palm/brown sugar
Handful roasted cashew nuts for serving
Handful chopped fresh coriander
Juice of 1 lime

1. Soak noodles in boiling water for about 10 minutes. Drain, add about 1 Tbsp sesame oil and set aside.
In the mean time…
2. In a hot wok stir-fry chicken pieces with peanut oil until almost cooked, set aside in a separate dish.
3. In the wok and over high heat then stir-fry garlic, chilli and ginger for a few seconds.
4. Add red peppers and spring onions, cooking for a minute or so.
5. Return the chicken to the wok along with the bean sprouts and spinach. Cook until the spinach has wilted.
6. Add the sugar, fish sauce and noodles and toss for a minute.
7. Take wok off the heat and add the lime juice, coriander, cashew nuts and serve immediately.
