Homemade egg noodles are very delicious cooked in anyway, either in soup, fried dry or fried with sauce. Here I have 2 noodle dishes that you can try, one is noodle soup and one is fried noodles. And with my Super Fast Chinese Roasted Chicken or my recent Spicy Aromatic Baked Chicken, these 2 noodle dishes here are just very easy and quick to cook. Both are made from homemade egg noodles, topped with sliced Spicy Aromatic Baked Chicken.
Cooking noodles in soup is very simple and easy. All you need is a very tasty soup seasoned according to your taste. I always boil the chicken bones to make the stock. Put some noodles in a bowl. Add some blanched green vegetables, some fried garlic or shallot oil, top it with sliced chicken and lastly add hot soup. It makes a very quick, nutritious meal. Even picky eaters like my daughter will gobble down this dish happily. At least she doesn’t pick out the vegetables! If she does, she knows I won’t cook it again……smart mom…haha. She would eat all the vegetables first and then enjoy the rest!
Frying noodles is a little more tricky. The noodles won’t be as delicious if the fire is not hot enough. It’s quite sad that we don’t get strong fire for cooking here. So I have to adjust my way of cooking. I always cook the ingredients separately when frying noodles and then mix all together. I find that works well. The noodles come out nicer.
Here’s my Fried Egg Noodles recipe. You can vary the amount of ingredients and seasoning according to your preference. You can even add a little wine, sesame oil or pepper powder if you like. You can even add chopped chilies to make it spicy. The list is really endless.
fresh egg noodles
eggs (lightly beaten)
green leafy vegetables
fried garlic oil
Ingredients B (seasoning)
light soya sauce
sugar (a little)
Heat up some oil in the frying pan or wok. Pour in the beaten eggs. Mash up the omelette before it hardens. Dish up. Fry the vegetables separately too and dish up also.
Lastly fry the noodles until fragrant. You’ll hear some soft hissing sound as you fry. Add the seasoning and continue to fry. Adjust the seasoning according to your taste. Add the vegetables and the omelette. Mix well and dish up. Top with the sliced spicy aromatic baked chicken and serve hot. It is very delicious and makes a quick light meal.
