Drunken Chicken Noodles

Getting reviews...
Drunken Noodles is a Thai dish with Chinese origins, influenced by the Chinese who lived in Laos and Thailand. It is a stir-fried noodle dish traditionally uses broad flat rice noodles stir-fried with meat, shellfish, tofu, vegetables, chile, spices, fish sauce and other seasonings. The name was thought to come about because rice wine is not commonly used in Thai recipes whereas it features in this recipe therefore giving its uniqueness and nod to Chinese heritage. Whatever the real reason for the name, this is a delicious dish and truly versatile. I have used carrots, mangteout and Romano peppers to give the dish sweetness and crunch, plus thigh meat from the chicken because it has more flavour. You can adapt the recipe to your preferences but the combination of seasonings - soy, fish sauce, rice wine, oyster sauce is an absolute must! This makes an easy delicious mid-week supper.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Cook the noodles to packet instructions. Drain and refresh under cold water, drizzle 1 tablespoon peanut oil over, mixing well to stop the noodles from sticking, and set aside.
  2. Heat a wok over high heat and add the remaining peanut oil. Add the garlic, chiles, chili flakes and onions and stir-fry for a few seconds to release their aroma. Add the chicken thighs and stir for 2 minutes. As the chicken starts to turn brown at the edges and turn opaque, add the Shaosing rice wine.
  3. Add the mangetout, Romano peppers and carrots and toss together and stir well for 2 minutes. Add the noodles and toss well for 1 minute, and then season with the oyster sauce, soy sauce and fish sauce with sugar; toss well for 1 minute. Garnish with the scallions and serve immediately.
