Craving some spicy food but feeling intimidated about the different spices and sauces to use?
This dish will take approximately 15 minutes! So...try out this quick and simple stir-fried chicken noodles with a schezwan twist.
For those not familiar with Schezwan dishes- The Szechuan cuisine originated in China. However, it evolved into a modern Indian-Chinese blend in which case you'll often taste these dishes having a variety of flavours as this cuisine indulges in spices, vegetables, and in some cases even fruits.
Schezwan dishes bring out flavours such as- hot/ spicy/ sour, pungent, aromatic, salty, bitter and sweet. Which is why, when cooking any Schezwan dish, you will have to keep the balance of ingredients in mind so that ingredients don't overpower each other and / or your dish doesn't turn out bland.
Hakka noodles ( You can also use Spaghetti noodles instead)
1 Teaspoon Soya Sauce
1-2 Teaspoons Hot Sauce (My recommendation- Chings Chinese Schezwan sauce- any sauce with a thick consistency will do best for your dish)
1 cube of Butter
2-3 cloves of Garlic (finely chopped)
1-2 Chicken Breasts
1/2 Teaspoons of Chilli Pepper Flakes
Veggies - You may choose to add them. However, adding them does help balance the dish and gives some crunch to your noodles...
1/4 Cup Broccoli (sliced)
1/4 Cup Carrots (shredded)
1/4 Bell Peppers (sliced)
