Singapore Noodles with Chicken

I've been back in the meal time rut and serving up a consistent flow of the same thing every. single. night. Yearning to try something simple, tasty and most of all new, I stumbled upon this recipe on the back of a Campbell's chicken stock pack. Being a big fan of noodles, I was instantly drawn to this one. I tweaked the original recipe slightly, substituting snow peas with capsicum and leaving out the 1/4 cup of unsalted cashew nuts. But the result was truly delicious. A bit of a gamble for me, who is wary of cooking anything with curry or spicy flavours. I still would probably subtract one of the teaspoons of curry powder next time, though it really wasn't that spicy anyway. I'm just a wuss. 

Singapore Noodles with Chicken

375ml chicken stock
125g rice vermicelli noodles
2 tbsp oil
500g chicken breast fillet, thinly sliced
1 onion, thinly sliced
2 carrots, cut into think sticks
1 green capsicum, thinly sliced
3 tsp mild curry powder
2 tbsp soy sauce
4 green onions (shallots), sliced

Place stock in a saucepan & bring to the boil
Remove from heat
Add noodles, toss until slightly softened
Cover & let soak for 5 mins, stirring occasionally
Heat 1 tbsp oil in a wok or large frying pan over high heat
Cook chicken, in batches, for 5 mins or until golden
Remove & set aside
Heat remaining oil & add onion, cook, stirring, for 2 mins
Add carrots, capsicum & curry powder, cook, stirring, for 2 mins
Return chicken to pan
Add soy sauce, green onions, soaked noodles & any remaining stock
Toss to combine
Cook, stirring for 2 mins until noodles are coated & stock is absorbed

Prepping this meal, I was struck by the brilliant green ingredients going into it. So took the opportunity to 'snap' them and I'm linking up with Faith Hope & a whole lotta Love for today's 'Snap It' topic of: Green.
