Nothing says Valentines day like some spice 😉 and my ” Thai Me Up Noodle Bowl” is just the thing! (see what I did there.. Thai me up, I’m so clever haha)
I love me a good noodle bowl! For this dish I used rice noodles.. So its like a cross between Pho/ Ramen and a stir fry! *wipes drool* This is the lunch dish I prepared for my Week of Valentines Day recipes.. Its super simple and super delish!
Casey’s Thai Me Up Noodle Bowl –
2 boneless skin less chicken breasts
4 oz of thin rice noodles (vermicelli)
2 tablespoons of toasted sesame oil
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
2 tablespoons of mirin
2 tablespoons of rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon of sriracha
1/2 teaspoon chili flakes
1 large red pepper, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon of fresh grated ginger
2 cloves of garlic, minced
4 scallions, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons of cilantro
3 radishes, thinly sliced
1. Bring two pots of water to a boil. In one pot, put the chicken. Boil until cooked through and shred with a fork, set aside. Place the thin rice noodles into a large bowl and cover completely with the other pot of boiling water. set that aside to soften.
2. In a large saute pan, heat your toasted sesame oil on medium high heat. Add in the red pepper, ginger and scallions, toss to coat. Now add in the soy sauce, mirin, sriracha, rice wine vinegar, scallions and chili flakes. Stirring frequently, cook until peppers soften slightly (about 6 minutes)
3. Drain your noodles carefully, and set aside. Add in your garlic and the shredded chicken to the saute pan. Stir to combine all the flavors. Once the garlic become fragrant, throw in the cilantro and add in the noodles and toss to cover them with that delicious sauce and to evenly distribute all of the yummy-ness (is that even a word? It is now!)
4. Remove from the heat and toss in the radish. Salt and Pepper to taste.. This recipe makes about 4 cups of noodles, Enjoy!!
Literally, I ate half of the pan while writing this. It is just SO good. Tastes like you are in a Thai restaurant, but you control the salt and the overall content! The best part is it isn’t a heavy dish, but it fills you up!
If you are not a fan of spice, just leave out the sriracha and chili pepper flakes! It’s that simple 🙂 The recipe will still work! It really isn’t that spicy, so I would suggest just going with it how it is written, or at least put in the sriracha as it is a sweet spice!
I hope you try it and love it!
See-ya tomorrow for my Valentines day dinner appetizer dish! xo
