What is Chicken Hakka Noodles?
Chicken Hakka Noodles is a Chinese dish of cooked noodles tossed with boiled and shredded chicken and vegetables in Chinese sauces.
It is an absolutely enticing street style noodles recipe consisting of colourful veggies, eggs, flavourful spicy sauces and sesame oil.
And I make regularly for them at home for their meal or snack box or for kids get togethers.
Also, Hakka Noodles is a must order by my kids whenever we visit and Indo Chinese restaurant for dine on. Anything chicken given in Chinese flavour is their fondness.
Chinese chicken recipes has always been on a roll for us, indeed. We often plan to have nice Indo Chinese food during weekend brunch or dinner.
Dishes like Chicken Spring Roll, Mushroom Manchurian, Noodles Samosa, Chicken Fried Rice and Chicken Stir Fry are their first choice. Pair this meal with nice hot sauces and we have lovely spicy treat to satiate everyone at the table.
Most noteworthy, ALWAYS boil the noodles until just done to al dente (cooked but firm to bite)
The vegetables in the Chicken noodles give an added colour and flavour, making the plain noodles look bright and tasty indeed. Add any veggies for your choice.
You can either julienne the veggies or chop them to cubes, but be sure to cut all of same size for them to cook the same crunch.
Preparations like chopping veggies, shredding chicken and boiling the noodles can be done before hand. They stay well for 3-4 days in clean tight air tight container under refrigeration.
Adjust the sauces and spiciness ratio as per your liking. You can also go on ahead to add more of hot sauces and chilies if you wish to.
Lastly, do not miss on adding sesame oil to finish the noodles at the end. The addition of sesame oil gives authentic Chinese flavour to the dish.
