Thai Fried Rice Noodles with Chicken Recipe

Updated on April 5, 2010

Here’s a pretty easy and pretty quick little Thai stir fried noodle dish.

This is similar to pad Thai, in that it’s made from the same type of noodles and stir fried in a similar manner, but this recipe calls for fewer ingredients, and in general, is easier to make.

Stir fried noodles make a great quick lunch meal and kids, especially, always love this dish. Although this recipe calls for chicken, you can substitute sliced pork (any cut) or even ground pork, if that’s what you have on hand.

Thai Fried Rice Noodles with Chicken (for 2)

  • 150 grams of dried rice noodles - Look for the ones that are about the width of linguini
  • 2 cloves of garlic chopped
  • 2/3 cup of small cauliflower florets (you can substitute carrot slices or julienned baby corn here, if you’d like)
  • 4 green onions, chopped into 1 inch segments
  • ½ cup of chicken breast, sliced into thin slices
  • 2 tsps of fish sauce
  • 2 tsps of soy sauce
  • 2 Tbls of sugar
  • 6 Tbls of tamarind water – soak 6 Tbls of tamarind with 6 Tbls of water for about 5 minutes. Drain off the solids to get tamarind water.
  • 3 Tbls of vegetable oil
  1. Soak the noodles in a large bowl of cold water until they have softened, about 15 minutes.
  2. Heat the oil over medium-high in a wok or large heavy fry pan.
  3. When the oil is hot, add the garlic and stir fry for about 20 seconds, and then add in the meat and the vegetables.
  4. Stir fry the meat and vegetables for about 2 minutes, and then throw in the drained rice noodles. Turn the heat down to medium-low after you’ve added in the noodles
  5. Stir the noodles in to get them all coated in the little oil in the pan. Working quickly, add in the sugar, fish sauce, soy sauce and tamarind water and stir all of these into the noodles, until they are evenly distributed and the noodles are all coated.
  6. Cook noodles, stirring, for about 3 or 4 minutes, or until they are cooked through and the vegetables are softened. If the noodles get overly dry as you’re stir frying, add water in, a Tbls at a time, as needed.
  7. After the noodles have cooked, turn off the heat and stir in the green onions.
  8. Serve on plates with a few cucumber slices
