Ingredients

  • ounces  flat rice noodles (found in the Asian section in most grocery stores), cooked al dente according to package instructions
  • large  boneless skinless chicken breast, pounded to ½ inch thickness and cut into bite-sized pieces  (you can also use chicken thighs)
  • 2 eggs, optional
  • cup  fresh bean sprouts
  • 1/3  cup  sliced green onions, plus extra to garnish
  • 1/4  cup  sliced white onion
  • 1/3  cup  shredded carrot
  • 1/3  cup  cilantro, roughly chopped
  • zest of 1 kaffir lime  (if you can't find a kaffir lime, use a regular lime)
  • Peanuts
  • Fresh lime juice

For the Sauce:

  • ¼  cup  ketchup
  • tablespoons  fish sauce   (found in the Asian section at most grocery stores)
  • tablespoons  sugar
  • teaspoon  minced garlic
  • teaspoon peanut butter
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • ½  teaspoon  crushed red pepper flakes
  • teaspoon  soy sauce

Instructions

  • Season chicken with salt and pepper to taste. Cook chicken in a large wok or pan over medium heat, stirring throughout until cooked through, about 8 minutes.
  • While the chicken is cooking, whisk together all sauce ingredients and set aside.
  • When the chicken is fully cooked, remove from wok and set aside. Keep the wok, or pan, on the stove on medium heat.
  • Crack eggs over preheated pan and allow to fry for about one minute, then break the eggs up with a spatula and add the onions and bean sprouts.
  • Crack eggs over preheated pan and allow to fry for about one minute, then break the eggs up with a spatula and add the onions and bean sprouts.
  • Add chicken and sauce to the pan. Add noodles and toss to coat the noodles in the sauce. Stir in green onions and cilantro. I like to use tongs, to ensure the noodles are completely coated with the sauce.
  • Garnish with peanuts if desired and an extra squeeze of fresh lime juice.

Notes

Kaffir Lime -- it's a very tiny lime that has a very short season and an extremely pungent lime flavor.
