Asian Inspired Chicken Noodle Bowl for dinner on Sweet Caramel Sunday!
Just in time for dinner here is an idea – a delicious Chicken Noodle Bowl!! Alright, I know I said to you guys that I was going to stop talking about noodles, but I just have a couple more recipes to put out there before we can get to that point. So here is another one!!
I lived in Japan when I was 21 and it was cold over there. The most heart warming meal we had was ramen and we had it a lot!
Ever since doing more of my own cooking and thinking about flavour combos, a delicious Noodle Bowl is always a go to when I want something a little bit non standard.
Plus, these days, Australia has so many varieties of culturally inspired cuisines that it is almost difficult to not be inspired to do something a little different.
So, I bring you this super easy and delicious Asian Inspired Chicken Noodle Bowl. If you grow your own herbs, best thing is you can throw them in – that is what I did with the basil and coriander, both herbs which are so easy to grow and if you are not eating they, the basil is likely to flower and leaves drop off. Whereas when you are regularly picking the leaves and tending to the plant, it will be your best kitchen friend!
I have 2 tips to make life easy in this dish, 1) Use precooked leftover chicken or a BBQ cook 2) Use Brown rice noodles, in the cup and the stock as the basis of the dish.
Then the only work you need to do is cut the chilli and lemon, arrange everything in the plate and get your chopsticks out to dig in!
This Asian Inspired Chicken Noodle Bowl will have you heading away from the take away store and into your kitchen instead. With fresh flavours and a simple cooking process, you will make it time and time again!
- 2 cups brown rice noodles chicken flavour, rice and noodles only
- 1/2 cup cooked chicken leftovers
- pinch basil leaves fresh
- pinch coriander leaves fresh
- 1/2 lemon cut in 2
- 1 chilli long red
- 1/3 cup bean shoots
Boil the kettle and pour the water into the 2 cups to cook the noodles
Once cooked, drain but keep broth and start arranging your bowl by filling base with noodles
Add fresh herbs, bean shoots, lemon and top with chopped chilli
Pour reserved broth in, starting from one side.
I use the seasoning that came with the noodles but discarded the little dried pea/corn sachet.
If you like this recipe another one you might be interested in checking out is this Brown Rice Noodle Stir fry with Pork and mixed veggies and you can get that recipe here. Or you might like to make Pad Thai instead of getting take out and this recipe is a fabulous go to for authentic tasting Thai at home.
If noodles are not your thing tonight, why not try something completely different and in that case, I would recommend this super awesome vegetarian Artichoke and Blue cheese pizza or if pasta is more your thing, you could try this Mushroom Spaghetti which sometimes has me dreaming about it, when I should (scratch that, could) be doing more productive things.
But hey, if you also just want to have a drool over some damn good looking pizzas, then check my Pizza and flatbread ideas board.
Healthier options instead? I get it, check out this Turmeric Cous Cous with crispy bacon and basil drizzle salad recipe for it here.
