Rice noodles tossed with spicy veggies and a delicious sauce. A very quick stir-fry noodle dish that has big flavor.

Roughly adapted from a Bon Appetit recipe.


10 ounces rice noodles, cooked
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil, for noodles
1 pound chicken breasts, sliced thin
1 red bell pepper, chopped
3-4 bird chili peppers, minced with seeds
1 small sweet onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
2 large eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup fresh basil, minced (garnish)


2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon chili garlic sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon sugar


1) For sauce, stir ingredients together in a small bowl and set aside for alter.

2) Prepare all your other ingredients before you start cooking: Dice chicken and veg. Mince the chili peppers and garlic very fine.

3) Cook rice noodles according to package instructions. Once cooked, drain, rinse with cold water, and toss with sesame oil to prevent sticking. Set aside.

4) Heat a large wok over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the oil and chicken and cook until the chicken is just cooked through, about 4-5 minutes.

5) Add onions and garlic and continue to cook. Be careful not to burn the garlic.

6) Add peppers and half of the sauce and cook for 30 seconds.

7) Add noodles and rest of sauce and toss to combine.

8) Make a well in the middle of the noodles and add beaten eggs. Let cook for 30 seconds so eggs can firm up a bit. Then stir together.

9) Serve noodles immediately garnished with fresh basil.
