Stir-fry noodles

This is one of our favorite recipes. Kristen requests it nearly every week (it also works well with seitan or other fake meat).
  • 250g Asian noodles
  • 500g chicken breasts
  • 1 bunch green onions
  • piece of ginger (thumb-sized)
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1-2 small dried chilies
  • 5-6 Tbsp. neutral oil (e.g. peanut oil)
  • 3 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1-2 Tbsp. lemon juice
Cut chicken into narrow strips. Wash green onions and cut into thin rings. Chop garlic and ginger finely. Chop or crumble chilies. Prepare noodles according to package directions (usually you have to cook for 3-5 minutes in water). Rinse.
Heat 3-4 Tbsp. of the oil in a large frying pan or wok on high heat. Add chicken strips and cook for 1-2 minutes while stirring. Push to the side, add a bit of oil and fry the green onion, ginger, garlic and chilies. Add the remaining oil with the noodles and stir fry for another minute. Add soy sauce and lemon juice. Enjoy!
