Recipe FAQs

When it comes to making a tasty chicken noodles stir-fry recipe, you’ll want to use the right kind of noodles. Egg noodles, rice noodles, Soba Noodles or Udon noodles work wonderfully. These noodles soak up all the yummy flavors in your stir-fry, making every bite a delight.

It’s a common question when preparing a stir-fry. The answer depends on the type of noodles you’re using and your preference.

Egg noodles, rice noodles, and wheat noodles are usually precooked because they can become too sticky if added directly to the stir-fry. Simply follow the package instructions to boil or soak them until they’re slightly undercooked. Then, rinse them with cold water to stop the cooking process.

On the other hand, if you’re using fresh or instant noodles, they can be added directly to the stir-fry without precooking. Just be sure to follow the recipe instructions and ensure they cook thoroughly in the wok or pan.

Wondering when to add that stir-fry sauce to your delicious dish? You’ll want to add it after cooking your noodles. This way, the flavors mix perfectly.

The best side dishes to complement your stir fry are egg rolls, cucumber salad, vegetable spring rolls, and a delightful Asian slaw. These pairings will elevate your meal and make it a feast to remember!
