Easy chicken noodles

Easy chicken noodles

I love noodles and I came across some rice noodles in the pantry.

They’re so delicate dried but they take on so much lovely flavour when mixed with vegetables and seasoning.

This is one of the many recipes I created when I followed the 90 Day Plan by The Body Coach. Simply use your plans ingredient amounts instead of those shown in the recipe. There are 220 Create Your Own (CYO) friendly recipes in my app and on this website.

  • Add the peppers and continue to stir fry the chicken and peppers until the chicken is cooked through, it will be firm to the touch when ready.
  • Add the broccoli and babycorn to the pan and sprinkle the 5 spice seasoning over everything and carefully stir the ingredients to mix in the spices before adding the noodles to the pan along with a tablespoon of water as the pan maybe a little dry.
  • Carefully incorporate the noodles into the other ingredients and when everything is thoroughly mixed pop everything onto a plate!
