Reviews for Stir-Fried Chicken and Rice Noodles
Sort By :
"I made this and was very excited. It was pretty good the first night but the second time we didn't like it. Could be because I didn't have cornstarch and used flour instead. There was more than enough sauce to cover the noodles. I don't feel like there could have been more."
"I used this recipe to break in my new Scanpan wok that was an early Christmas present. Have to say, I loved this recipe! The broccoli soaked up the flavor of the sauce perfectly and marinating the chicken brought out the flavors even more! I would marinate the chicken for a bit longer next time though, just to amp up the flavors more, also maybe add some carrots into the mix too."
"Very delicate flavor and quick & easy to make. I like to add more vegetables (carrots, snow peas, even sprouts) and reduce the noodles. Very yummy!"
"We really liked the marinating sauce used in this recipe! Even though I had never stir-fried before, this recipe seemed easy enough to follow and turned out great! I will definatly make it again"
"I thought this recipe was pretty good, and my family seemed to enjoy it too. The rice noodles were a litte hard to find at the store, but my mom found them eventually. This is definetly a keeper."
