Oh yummy chicken noodles. It’s sometimes the quick and simple meals that are the best, you know? These Thai chicken noodles taste amazing and are pretty healthy too! Will and I have been training for our half marathon (wah, I know) so I’m all about the really quick and easy dinners that we can throw together after we get home. If I’m not eating by 8pm I get pretty cranky.

I’m sometimes a bit iffy about Thai food. We’ve made Thai curries a few times and I just can’t really get on board with them. It’s sad because it really is a food I should love, basically because I love most other foods. Part of the problem is I often find it too spicy, like overwhelmingly spicy, so I can’t really taste anything else which is odd because I’m normally ok with spice.

Anyways, despite my dislike of Thai curries I do love me some classic Thai ingredients so that’s where this Thai chicken noodles recipe comes in. It’s got garlic, chilli, soy sauce and rice vinegar to create a sweet and tangy sauce to coat the chicken and noodles.  Topped with chopped peanuts and coriander (cilantro) it’s a perfect Thai noodle dish!

Ingredients

For the chicken and marinade

  • 4 skinless, boneless Chicken Thighs
  • 2 cloves Garlic crushed
  • 4 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 90 g Sweet Chilli Sauce
  • 2 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Rice Vinegar

To make the noodles

  • 2 Pak Choy chopped
  • 4 nests Rice Noodles
  • 60 ml Coconut Milk
  • Bunch Coriander chopped
  • 3 tbsp Sweet Chilli Sauce
  • 2 tbsp Rice Vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 4 cloves Garlic crushed
  • 50 g Peanuts chopped
  • 2 tbsp Sesame Oil
  • 1 Lime cut into wedges, for serving

Instructions

  1. Place the chicken and marinade ingredients in a bowl. Mix so that the chicken is fully coated and set aside for a few minutes (if you had more time you could place in the fridge for a little while but it'll still taste great if you use straight away).

  2. Cook the noodles according to package instruction. Heat a large skillet over a high heat then place the chicken into the wok and cook until browned on either sides, about 5 minutes per side. Set aside. 

  3. Turn the heat down then add the coconut milk, sweet chilli sauce, rice vinegar, sugar and garlic and cook until it's thickened a bit. Add the noodles, pak choy and some of the coriander. Chop the chicken and add to the skillet along with the sesame oil. Give everything a good mix then serve topped with chopped peanuts, more coriander and some wedges of lime.

    I can empathize with you – I LOVE our local Thai restaurant but have yet to really crack the code on making great Thai at home. Pinning this to try soon, maybe I can finally get it right! 🙂
