In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

It's Monday and it's raining here - again. In such horribly dull weather, something spicy is called for. And, this Chinese Chicken with Spicy Noodles certainly ticks all those boxes. You can serve the chicken with plain noodles (because it would be just as good) or go the whole way and spice up your noodles as well.

While the chicken marinades, make the Spicy Noodles. Take some Egg Noodles.

Drain them well.


Heat a little Vegetable Oil in a pan.


Stir fry the cooked noodles on all sides until golden brown and crispy.
