Easy chicken and Chinese rice stick noodles stir fry with vegetables.
In terms of rice noodles, there is really a large group in China. For example, we have Shanxi rice cold noodles, Guangdong wide rice noodles and this rice stick noodles (sometimes also be referred as rice vermicelli noodles). In my last visit to the beautiful Yunan province where rice stick noodle has been featured as one of the most popular food, we tasted lots of rice stick noodles including rice stick noodles stir fry, rice stick noodle salad and rice stick noodle soup etc. Previously, in my hometown, we only have rice stick noodle soup like three treasure rice stick noodle soup with tomato, cucumber and ham.
Back home from that trip, I always have one bag of rice stick noodles in my kitchen cabinet. And the Chinese version in fact looks like this. Beautiful, right?
I am using dried rice stick noodles. We have fresh rice stick noodles, but it might be quite hard to find outside China. Usually, I re-soak them in the previous night. After soaking, cook the rice noodles in hot water for 3-5 minutes. It will become soft but chewy. Drain completely and stir fry with protein, vegetables or mushrooms. Really quick and easy.
And my personal sauce with this stir fry is Laoganma’s dou-chi chili sauce. If you do not have one bottle at home, I would recommend replacing it with other chili sauces. A light spicy taste can highlight the whole dish.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy! And this easy chow mein with shredded cabbage is highly recommended for you.
