Stir Fry Rice Noodles with Chicken and Basil

This meal is great when you want something fast and fresh. If you like spicier food, saute some red chilies with your chicken, ginger and garlic. It’s also great warmed up the next day for lunch.

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp garlic, minced

  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 6 green onions, chopped
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 4 tbsp of fresh basil, chopped
  • 2 tbsp cilantro, chopped
  • red chilies (optional)


For the noodles: Soak in warm water for approximately 10 minutes.
Drain and set aside.
For the stir fry: Heat the oil in a frying pan or wok.
Stir fry the garlic, ginger and chicken until the chicken is cooked through.
Add the green onions and noodles to the pan/wok and continue to cook for a few more minutes.
Add the eggs and lime juice, stirring to ensure that the eggs are mixed thoroughly.
Finish by adding the cilantro and basil.
Serve immediately.
