Spicy Chicken Noodles

There are some things we loved eating when we were kids, and they still us back when we eat them now. Chow Mein is something that was a regular in our home. I love it, and I make it often, but we did grow up, after all, so shouldn’t the food we loved as a child grow up too? That’s what this is. Grown up Chow Mein. The sambal and chilli powder add the perfect kick to the classic that will satisfy your inner child and your adult self as well! These are all ingredients that I have in my pantry, so I’m never more than 20 minutes away from my favorite childhood food, and you shouldn’t be either.

Here’s what you need:

1 pound boneless chicken, cut into thin strips

1 Tblspn Vinegar

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp sugar

1/4 tsp white pepper

1/4 tsp chili powder

2 Tblspn corn flour

2-3 Tblspn Sambal Olek (or 2 Tblspn sriracha)

2 Tblspn soy sauce

2 Tblspn oyster sauce

1 tsp sesame oil

2 cups shredded cabbage

1 thinly sliced bell pepper

1/2 cup shredded carrots

1/2 cup green onions, chopped

3/4 pack spaghetti, cooked according to box instructions (toss in 1 tsp sesame oil)

salt and black pepper to taste

Start off by marinating the chicken in the vinegar, salt, sugar, white pepper, chili powder and corn flour. In a wide pan heat some oil and pan fry the chicken, making sure to leave some space in between each piece. Cook on medium flame for 3 minutes on either side, or until both sides are golden brown. Add the sauces (soy sauce, samba omelet, oyster sauce and sesame oil) and sauté for a couple minutes, then add the vegetables, and sauté for another minute or so. You want to keep the vegetables crunchy.

Then add the cooked noodles and green onions, and toss til mixed. Check for seasoning. At this point I usually add salt and black pepper of needed. Serve hot!
