This chicken stir fry with rice noodles is easy, fresh, healthy, and totally delicious! It comes together fast, and you will love the sweet and savory sauce.
If you’ve been looking for an easy rice noodle recipe, you’ve come to the right place.
Tips on making stir fry with rice noodles:
- I used Thai rice noodles (the wider flat ones), but the recipe has some Vietnamese flavors. I wasn’t sure what to call this recipe, but I think “stir fry” is close enough. I didn’t use a wok, but same idea using a skillet.
- Making rice noodles is really easy. You can either soak them and then finish cooking them in the stir fry, or you can just boil them and toss them with the sauce at the end. I’ve done both ways for this recipe, and I find cooking them first to be easier for me, but either way is fine.
If you’re new to using fish sauce, don’t worry. It does smell quite strong, but the flavor mellows as it cooks. I love the umami taste it gives to dishes.
You can actually enjoy this dish as a cold rice noodle salad if you prefer. I did for the leftovers since there’s some fresh ingredients in here, so I didn’t want to microwave it at work. It’s definitely good when it’s hot straight out of the pan, but I enjoyed it just as much cold.
Do you like to top warm dishes with raw ingredients like I do? I think it really lifts so many dishes; especially Asian-inspired ones.
I hope you will like this chicken stir fry with rice noodles recipe as much as I did!
