Spicy Chicken Noodles

This spicy chicken noodles dish is perfect for using leftover chicken. If you want to use raw chicken, go ahead and chop it up, and stir-fry it for a minute or two before adding your vegetables.




•             1 large carrot, finely sliced or shredded

•             2 cups shredded green cabbage

•             1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

•             2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced

•             1/2 cup chopped green onions

•             3 cloves garlic, finely crushed   

•             1/2 cup chicken broth

•             1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar

•             1 tablespoon hoisin sauce

•             1 tablespoon soy sauce, plus more to taste

•             1 tablespoon ketchup

•             1 tablespoon brown sugar

•             1 tablespoon sriracha hot sauce, or more to taste

•             1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

•             1 (8 ounce) package dried rice noodles

•             1 pinch salt

•             8 ounces cooked chicken breast, torn into bite-size pieces

•             1 tablespoon sesame oil

•             1 tablespoon vegetable oil

•             1/2 cup freshly chopped cilantro




•             Place carrots, cabbage, bell pepper, jalapeno pepper, green onions, and garlic in a mixing bowl. Mix chicken broth, rice vinegar, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, sriracha sauce, and red pepper flakes together in a separate mixing bowl.   

•             Place dry rice noodles in a large mixing bowl. Cover with about 6 cups boiling water; add a pinch of salt. Stir from time to time until noodles are soft, for about 10 minutes. Drain; cool with cold water. Drain thoroughly. Transfer to a mixing bowl. Add shredded chicken; drizzle with sesame oil. Toss to coat.

•             Heat large skillet over high heat; drizzle in vegetable oil. When oil is hot (almost but not quite smoking), add the vegetable mixture. Cook and stir until vegetables are hot and steamy, for 1 or 2 minutes. Pour in sauce; cook and stir over high heat until sauce starts to bubble, for about 1 minute. Add noodles and chicken. Cook and stir to blend ingredients and ensure ingredients are hot, for about 1 minute. Remove from heat. Add chopped cilantro; stir.
