A homemade stir fry is naturally going to be easy, but this noodle recipe is a full on meal.



  • 1 tablespoon (15g) of regular soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon (15g) dark soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon (20g) fish sauce

  • 2 tablespoons (35g) oyster sauce

Stir Fry:

  • Vegetable Oil for cooking

  • 8oz (227g) chicken thighs, cut into small pieces

  • 1-2 shallots, thinly sliced

  • 8 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  • 1 red Fresno chili, deseeded & finely chopped

  • 2 Thai chilies, finely chopped

  • 8oz (227g) wide or broad dried rice noodles (re-hydrated)

  • 1 cup (13g) Thai Basil leaves

  • Fish Sauce to Taste

  • Salt



  1. In the small bowl, add all the ingredients and whisk until combined.

Stir Fry:

  1. In a wok, add enough oil to coat the bottom; once it begins to smoke, add chicken pieces, sear them for about 2 minutes, and stir fry; once it starts to get some color and is cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes, remove the chicken and place in a small bowl.

  2. Re-oil the wok; once hot, add shallots, season lightly with salt, and stir fry for about 2 minutes, or until it starts to turn translucent; then add garlic, stir fry for 1 minute or until fragrant. Next, add Fresno chili and Thai chili, stir fry for 30 seconds, add your noodles and your chicken and stir fry for 1 minute or 2.

  3. Once the veggies get evenly distributed, add your sauce; let it boil while tossing and stir-frying, about 45 seconds, next, add Thai basil, and mix them until they begin to wilt. Serve in a bowl with garnish.

8oz chicken is about 1-2 ppl. 8oz dry pasta is also for about 1-2ppl. Maybe two people for a light lunch, or 1 portion for a really hungry person

First time i made the mistake of doing 8oz wet noodles, not 8oz of dry (approx 1lb wet). Was also basically twice as spicy and too saturated in the sauce

tip: Find 100% wide rice noodles online, they are much better than the ones with ~1% tapioca
