Rice Noodle Stir Fry with Peanuts


Author Notes: Peanut oil adds extra peanut flavor, and with peanuts on top, this stir fry will please any peanut-lover!gabsimonelouise

Serves: 2

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces rice stick noodles
  • 3 tablespoons peanut oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red chilies, or to taste
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 22 snow peas
  • 1 large head broccoli, florets removed
  • 2 medium carrots, diced
  • 1 boneless skinless chicken breast, diced, optional
  • 1/2 cup your favorite teriyaki sauce (I like Soy Vay, or Trader Joe's Soyaki)
  • peanuts for garnish

Directions

  1. Soak rice stick in hot water for 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. In medium frying pan or wok, heat 1 tablespoon peanut oil on medium-high heat. Saute garlic and chili flakes until garlic is golden. Remove from heat, pour into a bowl and set aside.
  3. Place pan back on medium-high heat and add remaining 2 tablespoons peanut oil. Add vegetables and fry about 5 minutes, until broccoli is bright green and snow peas are just beginning to go limp. Add chicken, if using, and keep frying until chicken is just cooked through. Add noodles, then teriyaki sauce and stir mixture together until sauce is evenly distributed. Stir in garlic and chili flakes. Keep frying the mixture until most of the liquid is evaporated (I like to fry until the noodles start to stick to the bottom of the pan, but that means you will have some crusty noodles). Remove from heat and serve, garnishing generously with peanuts!
