  • 2 Large Onions (Chopped)
  • 500 grams Chicken Fillets (Chopped)
  • 3 Cloves Garlic (Grated)
  • 1 Tablespoon Ginger (Freshly Grated)
  • 2 - 3 Tablespoons Red Thai Curry Paste [Depends on preference of spiciness]
  • 1 Stalk Lemongrass (Split through)
  • 2 - 3 Lime Leaves
  • 1 Teaspoon Paprika
  • 3 Medium Dates (Chopped)
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 1/2 Cans Coconut Milk
  • 1/4 Cup Tamari
  • 2 Tablespoons Fish Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Lime Juice (Freshly squeezed)

Spicy Thai Sauce (Optional)

  • 2 Tablespoons Tamari
  • 1 Tablespoon Fish Sauce
  • 1 Teaspoon Brown Sugar
  • 3 Medium Chillies, sliced

Instructions

Thai Chicken Noodles

  • Heat the sesame oil over medium heat and fry the onions until soft and translucent.
  • Add the cubed chicken and stirfry for 10 minutes.
  • Add the garlic, ginger, Thai red curry paste, lemongrass, lime leaves, paprika and dates to the pot and saute for 5 minutes.
  • Add the brown sugar, coconut milk, tamari, fish sauce and lime juice. Bring the sauce to a gentle simmer and cook for 20 - 25 minutes.
  • In the meantime prepare the rice noodles - Place the noodles in a large bowl. Pour boiling water over to cover the noodles. Soak for 5 minutes, then rinse under cold water. The noodles will be softened but not cooked.
  • Add the noodles to the sauce once ready. Turn up the heat and stirfry for 5 minutes until the noodles absorb the sauce. You will be left with creamy Thai chicken noodles.
  • Garnish with chopped coriander and spring onions. Serve immediately and add some "spicy condiment" if you prefer your food a bit spicier!

Spicy Thai Sauce

  • Add tamari, fish sauce and brown sugar to a bowl. Stir until the brown sugar is dissolved and then add the sliced chillies. Let it stand to allow the flavour to develop. Serve as desired - depending on spiciness required!

Notes

  • Tamari can be replaced 1:1 with Soya Sauce
