Do you boil noodles before stir fry?

Hokkien Noodles for stir fry’s are popular and easy. 

To prepare your noodles, you need to remove them from the packet, place them in a heat proof  bowl and then pour boiling water over them. Leave to sit for about 3 mins to allow them to cook and then use a fork to separate. 

Once the noodles are cooked, you drain them, shake off any excess water and add them to the meat and veggies in the fry pan! 

What kindof noodles do you use for stir fry?

Hokkien Noodles for stir fry’s are popular and easy. Fresh is best, but you can also use dried noodles. 

Thick noodles and thin Singapore noodles are quick to prepare and ideal for using in stir frys. 

Most varieties of noodles only need boiling water to cook and this can be done by pouring it over them and setting aside whilst preparing the rest of the dish. 

Drain water and shake off excess then simply transfer to your fry pan and mix with the dish. 

What goes with Chicken Stir Fry?

 My favourite way to make this dish is using fresh simple vegetables. I go for pops of colour, minimal effort and a variety of textures. 

Capsicum (bell peppers), shallots (green onions) and corn spears tick all of the boxes of a good stir fry and save labour intensive prep work. 

You can also use frozen vegetables. Convenient as you can grab a bag of Asian style stir fry frozen veggies. These are a popular choice for those nights when you want a veggie loaded dish but don’t have the energy for hard work!

  • Fry pan
  • Jar
  • Tongs


Chicken Noodle Stir Fry

  • 600 grams chicken thighs Note 1
  • 250 grams hokkien noodles Note 2
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp dried onion
  • 1 tbs sesame seeds
  • 1 red capsicum
  • 410 grams corn spears drained, Note 3
  • 1/2 tbsp peanut oil
  • 1 cup sliced shallots (green onions)
  • salt and pepper to taste


Chicken Noodle Stir Fry

  • Add soy sauce, honey, garlic and dried onion to a glass jar, seal and shake to combine
  • Use a knife to cut chicken thighs into small 1-2cm pieces
  • Use a knife to cut the capsicum into long thin pieces, discard stem and seeds
  • Cut the corn spears in half
  • Place hokkien noodles into a heat proof bowl and cover with boiling water, leave for 3 mins and use a fork to separate noodles. Drain and lightly shake to remove excess water.
  • Add oil to a fry pan and turn to a medium heat. Place chicken pieces into pan and cook for 3-4 mins until the juices run clear and the meat is no longer pink. Note 4
  • Add capsicum and corn spears to your pan and pour 1/2 the sauce over veggies and chicken.
  • Transfer the noodles into the pan and use tongs to mix them into the chicken and vegetables. Pour remaining sauce over noodles and continue to mix together using tongs as you go.
  • Sprinkle shallots over stir fry, stir them through, followed by sesame seeds.
  • Serve chicken noodle stir fry in bowls with chopsticks and additional sesame seeds, cracked pepper as desired.



  • Note 1 chicken thigh meat is tender and juicy. It is much less dense than chicken breast and results is deliciously cooked meat, perfect for a stir fry. You can use chicken breast if you prefer, but if you haven't cooked with chicken thigh meat before, I recommend you try it as you will be amazed at how easy it is to chew (little kids will love too!) The 600 grams (4 chicken thighs) I used for this recipe were boneless,skinless chicken thigh meat. 
  • Note 2 the noodles you see throughout this post are fresh hokkien noodles from the fridge section. You cook them according to the instructions on the packet which is basically covering them with boiling water for 3 mins and using a fork to separate them, before draining shaking off excess water. 
  • Note 3 I use the tinned corn spears as you can get them all year round. You only need to drain (rinsing is unnecessary)
  • Note 4 Use a flat utensil to move the chicken around as it cooks. The pan will sizzle and the meat will cook very quickly.
