Delicious fried rice noodles with king prawns and char siu chicken

Fried Rice Noodles is always my family favourite. It can be fried in various ways. It is easy and fast as a one-dish meal and is great for days when you are very busy. I think there’s nothing better than a hot, home cooked meal, no matter how simple it is.

Juicy cooked king prawns

Juicy cooked king prawns

Those who have been following my blog will know by now that I love prawns or shrimps. I actually haven’t cooked the box of tiger prawns in my freezer yet when I bought another big packet of ready cooked king prawns yesterday. I was just so excited to use it many dishes.

I had a super busy day yesterday and only had time for a simple meal. It’s quite a while since we last had fried noodles so I thought fried rice noodles would please everyone. The king prawns would be just perfect to go with it. Since I had 2 pieces of char siu chicken thighs in the fridge, that would give extra flavour. I would do a Thai style fried rice noodles. The outcome? We liked it very much. My daughter said it was very delicious. She ate a big plate. This is again another simple, easy and quick meal that’s enough for 3-4 persons.

Ingredients A
1/2 packet of rice noodles

Put some water into a pot to boil. When it boils, add the dried rice noodles. Boil until it’s quite soft. Do not over boil. Taste for doneness according to your preference. Pour away the water and run through with cold water to stop it from further cooking and becoming too soft. Leave it aside.

Ingredients B
1chili (washed and chopped)
a handful of coriander leaves (washed and cut)
char siu chicken
cooked king prawns
bok choy (washed and sliced)
fried garlic oil
2 eggs

@3hungrytummies - Thank you. I actually liked the prawns most :P. I’ll put more next time.

@Anncoo - Thank you. I really want to try your vermicelli dish. I think I didn’t sleep well last night cos of those lovely prawns so beautifully laid out on the vermicelli :D

anncoo  on December 9th, 2009

Trissa  on December 9th, 2009

Mary, your fried rice noodles looks so deliciously comforting!

cheah  on December 9th, 2009

The king prawns are real big. Are they cheap over in your part of the world? So yummy and all in one….veggie, carbo and protein.

Simply Life  on December 9th, 2009

Seriously, all your meals look like something I would specifically go out to eat to be able to order! YUM!

Mary  on December 9th, 2009

@Anncoo - I hope so….very sleepy & tired already….BUT….still thinking of your big prawns….LOL

@Trissa - Thank you. I want to cook it again….cos of the prawns :P

@Cheah - Yes, they are big and ready cooked, thought frozen. That makes cooking very easy. Great even for salad….just defrost and use. Not expensive here when you think it’s all so clean and ready cooked. I love one-dish meal…can eat while watching TV :)

@Simply Life - Thanks for your lovely compliment. They are all simple and easy to cook. Hope you give a try.

It looks too delicious! Fried noodle is my all-time favorite!
And the addition of eggs, OMG!!!!!!

Eleanor Hoh (WokStar)  on December 9th, 2009

Prawns look HUGE! This dish is very similar to the Malaysian Quai Teow. I love all types of noodles. I try not to fry them cause it requires more oil. I prefer to just mix in with my other ingredients. Yummy one-dish meal, great Mary.

Mary  on December 9th, 2009

@lululu - Thanks. I find this small rice noodles very delicious. Eggs….always a must in fried noodles for my family. It adds flavour and colour.

@Eleanor - Yes, these king prawns are huge. They are very delicious…not tough. The rice noodles are indeed very similar to Malaysian Quai Teow, only thinner which I find very delicious. I’ve only learned to use this type not too long ago after eating at a Vietnamese restaurant. Yes, trying to cut down oil too so a non-stick pan helps. Good idea to just mix all ingredients in a big bowl. Thanks.

Sarah, Maison Cupcake  on December 9th, 2009

This looks so tasty, I love anything with king prawns. My dad used to have plates like the one in the second photo!

Mary  on December 9th, 2009

@Sarah - I love king prawns too…very much. I bought those plates in UK….must be the same factory then :) I think the plate and the prawns match each other very well.

Sook  on December 9th, 2009

You’re right, Mary, there is nothing better than a nice, warm homemade meal and it’s even better when you have people to share it with. :) Yummy looking recipe! I love all of your seafood recipes!

Blackswan  on December 9th, 2009

Hey Mary, that’s a decent plate of nutritious meal!

Light Delight with TouTou  on December 9th, 2009

Where can you buy those rice noodles???? I searched lots of Asian grocery but I couldn’t find that wide rice noodles anywhere! this is like a advanced level of Pad Thai , I love that !!!

Brie  on December 9th, 2009

this looks wonderful! a lot of tasty flavors going on in this dish. your prawns/shrimp are always so big and juicy. i have a hard time finding good size ones where i am.

Belle@OohLook  on December 9th, 2009

Your noodles look fantastic. I can imagine cooking such a dish after a long day at work.
And I think rice noodles are a must for this type of dish, though if you used egg or wheat noodles, it would be more of a chow mein.

Anita  on December 9th, 2009

Interesting timing for adding the egg. Cool. I love the range of ingredients you’ve used, I think it would make a delicious dish!

plamarie  on December 9th, 2009

Oh my, you put my cooking to shame. Your dishes are all soooo good. :) I am so going to refer back here for recipes. Thanks! :)

Mary  on December 10th, 2009

@Sook - Thanks. I think I have a weakness for seafood especially prawns…..just so delicious.

@Blackswan - Thanks…a quick one when I don’t have time.

@Light Delight with TouTou - I got it from Asian shops. Try again. Otherwise you have to move here…hehe.

@Brie - Thanks. These are really big, juicy prawns…ready cooked. They are great for salad too. Hope you can find it somewhere on your side.

@Belle@OohLook - Yes, egg or wheat noodles will be equally delicious. My family would like it too. Equally easy to cook.

@Anita - Thanks for comment. I love to use eggs in frying noodles. They add flavour, taste and colour.

@plamarie - Awww….thanks. I’m still learning and trying my best to cook decent meals for my family everyday. Yours are delicious too.

Michael Chin  on December 10th, 2009

Oh, Goodness me, I love fried rice noodles, I also like king prawns ! Your photos make my mouth water ! I will cook this tonight although may be of slight variation from your recipe.

Mary  on December 10th, 2009

@Michael - Wonderful to know you are cooking this dish tonight. It’s ok to make some twists to it. I’m sure it will come out very delicious. I wish I can have some share of it :)

Divina  on December 10th, 2009

What a feast for a simple dish. There’s prawns and there’s char siu chicken. What more could I ask for, they look absolutely delicious.

Mary  on December 10th, 2009

@Divina - It was very delicious but I only love the big king prawns :P

Amy @ Simply Sugar & Gluten Free  on December 10th, 2009

I use gluten-free noodles and the best ones I’ve found are made by Tinkyada. Their brown rice noodles hold their shape beautifully and don’t fall apart.

Mary  on December 10th, 2009

@Amy - That’s very healthy eating. I don’t take gluten very well so I usually go for rice and rice products or soba noodles and also spelt flour.

Dhale  on December 10th, 2009

I should NOT have looked at your blog on an empty stomach. Everything looks so delicious and I’m having some serious cravings for Asian food now!

penny aka jeroxie  on December 10th, 2009

I keep looking at all the prawn dishes. I must make a prawn dish this weekend as well.

The Little Teochew  on December 10th, 2009

Beautiful and oh so delicious! Well done!

kristy  on December 10th, 2009

Oooo… another yummy meal! Salivating. But I prefer it in stir fried with dark soy sauce, more fragrant! Something like ‘chao gui teow’ style! hmmm…mm…

Mary  on December 11th, 2009

@Dhale - LOL….it happened to me too often. I’m smarter now….eat well before visiting certain blogs! Thanks for visiting.

@Penny - Yeah, would love to see your prawn dish. I’m sure it will taste very good.

@The Little Teo Chiew - Thanks for your lovely compliment.

@Kristy - Oh…I have to try that also next time. Now you make me drool. I really miss the Penang fried kway teow.

Yum Yucky  on December 11th, 2009

I just tried rice noodles for the first time last week. It’s greedy good! Just like the looks of that dish. om-nom-nom!

Mary  on December 12th, 2009

@Yum Yucky - Thanks for visiting and your comment. It’s lovely to know that you tried riced noodles last week for the first time and you liked it very much. You can fry with other ingredients too.
