Stir Fry's are such a quick and easy dinner that can also be really delicious. All of the ingredients can be chopped up and prepared in advance to make it a quick and healthy mid week meal.
I have made this stir fry with noodles, however it also works great served with boiled rice. I also have cooked the stir fry in an electric wok we have at home and it is fantastic for stir frying! If you don't have one of these a large frying pan will do the trick.
Ingredients 500g chicken breast
1/4 bunch celery
1/2 a broccoli
1/2 a cauliflower
1 220g packet hokkien noodles
1/2 cup satay paste
200ml coconut milk
1 Tbsp olive oil
These are just the vegetables that I used (what we had in the fridge), however you can just use your favourite vegetables instead.
Prepare the ingredients. Firstly chop up the chicken into thin strips (will cook faster).
Chopping the chicken
Slice up all the vegetables. Dice up the onions, slice the carrot, capsicum and zucchini into sticks, chop the broccoli, cauliflower and celery into small pieces.
Break up the noodles into a bowl and boil the water in a kettle. When boiled, pour the water over the noodles to cover them and set aside.
This will soften and cook the noodles
Heat a wok or a large frying pan to a medium high heat and add oil.
Add in the onions and cook for 1-2 minutes until browned and soft.
Stir in the chicken and cook for 3-4 minutes or until browned on the outside and mostly cooked through. The chicken will continue to cook when you add in the other ingredients, therefore you must make sure that you don't cook it for too long and make it dry.
Add in all the other vegetables and cook for 3 minutes until slightly browned and soft. It is alright if the vegetables are still slightly crunchy in the middle.
Mix together the satay paste and coconut milk with a spoon then pour it into the wok and mix.
Combine the satay paste and coconut milk separately before adding
Cook for 1-2 minutes to let the sauce thicken slightly.
Drain the water from the noodles and add them to the stir fry. Mix and serve.
