What to serve with Chinese Noodle Stir Fry:
Check out my crab rangoon recipe to go with it! This Chinese chicken and noodles recipe already has the noodles for the side dish, vegetables throughout, and chicken as the protein, so there is not many more food groups you are missing out on. This recipe is similar to my spicy ramen recipe.
What size of pot for this one pot meal?
I like to use a T-fal titanium 12 inch nonstick deep dish skillet! The reason I use a deep dish skillet instead of a large pot is for the allowance of more room for the chicken to cook evenly in this Chinese chicken and noodles recipe. Once the chicken is removed from the pot, it doubles as a pot to boil the ramen noodles in, making it a one pot meal.
Can I make this chicken recipe in advance?
Definitely! You can cook the chicken, and store it in the fridge until you are ready to make the rest of the Chinese chicken and noodles recipe! Just make sure the chicken gets heated throughout before consuming.
Variations of this Chinese chicken and noodles recipe:
- Protein - you can swap the chicken out for pork or tofu!
- Vegetables - add more veggies if you want more nutrients in your food. Inside of using mixed vegetables, you can also add just a specific vegetable like peas or carrots.
How do I know if my chicken breast is done?
- Temp - With a meat thermometer, you can remove a piece of chicken from heat and insert the meat thermometer. If the chicken temps above 165 degrees Fahrenheit, it is done.
- Cutting it open - Without a meat thermometer (I did not have one for years, click here to see the meat thermometer I have now) you can cut a slice of chicken open to see if it is done. If it is white on the inside, it is done. If the chicken is still slightly pink, let cook a bit longer.
How to make chicken stir fry:
- First, cook the chicken-I breaded my chicken. If you do not want to bread the chicken to save time, you do not have to. Just cook it until it is done. Remove chicken from skillet.
- Next, fry the onions and garlic-garlic and onions give the dish a lot of savory flavor.
- Then, cook the noodles with the onions and garlic
- Finally, add chicken back into the pot with the noodles
How to store stir fry leftovers:
- Fridge - store this chicken breast recipe in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
- Freezer - I have not tried freezing this recipe. If you wanted to try freezing it, let me know how it goes!
