Hokkien Noodles my way!

This dish of mine serves 4-5


1 full Chicken Thigh
1 small red Capsicum
2 dozen Snow Peas
2-3  Bok Choy
3/4 cups of Kecap Manis (Sweet Soy Sauce) keep the bottle handy for adding a little bit later.
1 teaspoon of crushed Chillies or a teaspoon of Laska Paste
1 1/2 teaspoon of crushed Ginger
1 tablespoon of Rice Wine
1 teaspoon of Fish Sauce
Juice of 1 fresh Lime
1kg of Hokkien Noodles
200 grams of Bean Shoots
1 small bunch of fresh Coriander
3 Eggs
1 teaspoon of Sesame Oil
1 tablespoon of Sunflower Oil
2 cups of water


If you have an electric frypan it will be ideal for this dish.

Cover your noodles in cold salty water and soak until they are nicely separated, drain and put aside.

Cut your chicken thigh into bite size pieces, top and tail the snow peas and then cut them in half. Core the capsicum and slice into strips. Remove the leaves away from the Bok Choy and cut the fleshy stems in half.

Crack your 3 eggs into small bowl and lightly beat, put aside.

Making the Sauce

Place into a jug the following: kecap manis, rice wine, fish sauce, minced ginger and chilli (I often add a half a teaspoon of laska paste as well for a bit of kick) and lime juice. Stir thoroughly.

Into the electric frypan pour in 2 cups of water. When the water is simmering put in your noodles and gently mix about. Be careful to make sure they do not stick to the bottom of the pan throughout the cooking of this dish.

In a frypan place your sunflower and sesame oil and heat up. When the oil is hot enough, put in the chicken and cook for a few minutes. Then add capsicum, snow peas and bok choy, add 2 tablespoons of the sauce and stir thoroughly. Cook for 3-5 mins only.

Pour the rest of the sauce into the cooking noodles. Then add the chicken mix also into the noodles. Turn the electric frypan down to simmer. Stir from time to time so noodles do not stick. Add a little water if the dish looks to be drying out.

Into the same frypan that cooked the chicken mix, pour in the egg mixture. Fry into an omelet shape and then chop into strips.

Into the noodle mixture place egg, bean shoots, chopped coriander and around another 2 more tablespoons of kecap manis. Stir about and serve.
