Singapore-style chicken breasts with rice noodles

The list of ingredients is long and specific, but I find the ‘spirit of the reicpe’ can be followed with improvising depending on what you have in the fridge. For examle, I did replace vermicelli with ‘fettucini-style’ rice noodles (longer soaking time), replaced curry paste bias with chilli paste bias, veggies I have versus those inscribed – always quick and usually very tasty meal.

Like always with cooking chinese at home your real limitation if the size of your wok and the power of you heating plate. So be guided by your capabilities. If no other way, cook in batches!
