Chicken Satay Vegetable Noodles

Chicken Satay Vegetable Noodles

Posted 2018-11-19 by finyfollow

This is a nice combination of noodles with vegetables and satay.

You could easily enjoy this as a vegetarian meal by cutting out the chicken. I meant to also add broccoli and a few snow peas, however forgot to buy these.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Serves: 3

Ingredients
For the Satay Sauce
40 g peanut butter
90 g evaporated milk
1 tbsp sweet chili sauce
½ tbsp soy sauce
Bit of coconut essence
About 60 g water
For the vegetable noodles
½ large carrot, cut into thin matchsticks
225 g Hokkein noodles
About 300 g chicken breast, cut to bite sized pieces
100 g button mushrooms, quartered
125 g bean shoots, washed and drained
60 g red capsicum, cut into strips
½ bunch choy sum, ends cut off, washed and drained
½ bunch bok choy, ends cut off, washed and drained
50 g snow peas
65 g broccoli

Method
For the Satay Sauce
  • Put the peanut butter and evaporated milk in a small saucepan on medium heat. Stir while it comes to the boil. When it boils, add the sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, coconut essence, and mix to combine.


  • Add the water and mix again. Cover and set aside until the noodles are ready.

  • Prepare the vegetables on separate plates.

  • Bring a pot of water to the boil and blanch the broccoli, and carrots for 2 minutes.

  • Then add the snow peas for 30 seconds. Drain the vegetables (in my case I only had carrots at this stage) and refresh in cold water.

  • Set aside.

  • Put the noodles in a bowl and pour boiling water over them, as per packet instructions.

  • Break them up with a fork, drain, and set aside.

  • Heat some oil in a wok or frypan and stir fry the chicken until it is brown on the outside but not totally cooked through.


  • Remove from the wok, and set aside.

  • Stir fry the mushrooms for a few minutes, then add the blanched vegetables, bean shoots, capsicum, choy sum and bok choy.


  • Continue to stir fry for about 2 minutes.

  • Return the chicken to the wok and add the drained noodles and the satay sauce.

  • Stir through until warmed and all ingredients are combined.

  • Serve.


  • Note: this satay sauce is far lower in fat than traditional satay sauce.
