Ginger Chicken and Noodle Stir Fry.



Just popping in with this stir fry that comes with a huge disclaimer since it is one of those meals that I do on the fly. I don't measure anything, just chop some vegetables, make a sauce, boil noodles. Stir fries are not something I make often because of all the prep involved with chopping the vegetables. I hate soggy, next day, veggies.  I just make sufficient so that it is all consumed in one sitting with no leftovers. This is not so much a recipe but more of a suggestion or rough guide. I can't guarantee the precision of the amounts as I usually just eyeball the ingredients on this one. The sauce is basically a sweet/sour sauce so taste as you make it and adjust to your preference.

Ginger Chicken and Noodle Stir Fry

Servings (4-5) 
3 teaspoons vinegar
3 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons ketchup
6 tablespoons orange juice
3 tablespoons honey
3 teaspoons cornflour
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
10 oz boneless skinless chicken breasts 
6 ounces baby corn ( halved length ways
3 carrots (julienned)
2 red bell peppers
1 or two small zucchini (julienned)
chow mien noodles
6 teaspoons sesame seeds

Directions

Prepare the noodles according to the packet instructions. Drain and set aside.

For the sauce: Mix vinegar, soy sauce, ketchup, orange juice and honey together. Add the cornflour and stir until well combined. 


Heat the oil in a medium non-stick frying pan or wok and fry chicken for 3-4 minutes. The chicken will stick to the pan if you do not use a non stick for this.


Add the vegetables and stir fry for 4-5 mins.


Add the sauce and cook for a few minutes. 


Remove frying pan from the heat. Add the noddles to the chicken and vegetables along with the sesame seeds. Mix well and serve.
