The Featured Food Friday player today is ....

Ms. Pinkc00kies who blogs over at Munchy Crunchy, with her post:
Khong Guan Ice Gems

Being another foodie, Ms. Pinkc00kies shares her reviews about food she's eaten and where she had them.  Her blog's one of the places I go to when I want to learn a new item on a restaurant's menu (or which item has been phased out, lol) which she just visited; or if I just want to know what she's feasting on! Go and check out her diverse food reviews for yourself...but I urge you to visit on a full stomach, since you might get hungry with all the delicious food that will greet you.

Rice Noodle Experiment, that's what I'd like to call this dish:



My post for today is noodles again. I know, next week it will be different. Pinky promise.

Well, this one was inspired by a Thai friend named Poulet, who also loves to take shots of what she whips up in her kitchen. I just love the healthy dishes she makes and these two dishes just inspired me to try something different. Hence, my rice noodle experiment (my first time to try cooking this type of noodle).

(please click on the noodles if you prefer a bigger view)
But I don't have most of her ingredients, so I used what was available here at home:
  • chicken breast 
  • squash, bunch of celery, pechay (bok choy)
  • onion, garlic (diced)
  • salt, pepper, soy sauce
  • chicken stock (seasoned broth from some leftover raw chicken bones and skin)
  • toasted sesame seeds
  • rice noodles

some ingredients used: squash, celery, onion, rice noodles, pechay (bok choy), and garlic.
Procedure was fairly easy:
  • Cut chicken breast in small sizes, then brown over a hot pan with a bit of oil. Season with salt, pepper, and soy sauce. Add diced onions and garlic.
  • Add in the squash since it takes longer to cook. Put the pechay (bok choy) next, then the celery. Mix everything well. Turn off heat.
  • In a separate pot, boil some water and cook the rice noodles, which will only take about two minutes. 
  • Place cooked noodles in a bowl. Add chicken and veggie mix.
  • Pour hot chicken stock.
  • Sprinkle with lots of toasted sesame seeds. 
  • Serve hot.
Decided not to add chili because of my youngest son. lol :robot
I served this hot, but my sons loved it at room temperature.



I must confess, I'm a rice noodle fan now! :L

I love Thai rice noodles specially when they are chewy and with sweet salty spicy sauce. Gayahin ko nga your recipe...tamang tama I still have one whole kabocha.:)

Hi Maiylah! Feels good to participate here again. I'm not a noodle person but your pictures look good as usual. Makes me want to try it. Will check each step how you did it later.

...oh yes, we love the chewiness, too! the kabocha on your post looks interesting...does it taste any differently from our squash here?
