Delicious Chicken Singapore Noodles - a curry flavoured noodle dish with tender pieces of chicken and vegetables that will become a regular on your meal plans.
Singapore Egg Noodles Recipe
Singapore Noodles has to be one of my favourite noodle dishes ever. I love the flavours of curry and I love noodles, so it's a definite winner for me and my version of this popular recipe will not disappoint. It's will impress your palate with the explosion of taste once you dig into a bowl of this dish.
Traditionally Singapore Noodles is usually served with vermicelli (rice noodles), but for my version of this recipe I prefer to use egg noodles, I just think they work amazingly well in this dish.
What is Sambal Oelek?
I also use Sambal Oelek for that punch of chilli flavour, a chilli paste which is popular in Asian style cooking. Available on Amazon, most large supermarkets or check out your local Asian grocery store. I always have a jar of this in my fridge and add to a variety of different stir fry dishes - Another of my favourites is this Chilli Beef Noodles.
If you can't get you hands on this however, you can use a pinch of chilli flakes or even some sliced fresh red chilis.
Protein to add to Singapore Noodles
For the protein base, I liked to use chicken thighs, they stay nice and tender and really take on all those flavours from the spices. But pork, or prawns (shrimp) are also a great option.
If you prefer chicken breast over thighs, then feel free to make the swap, just be aware that it will not take as long to cook.
A vegetarian option would be to just double up on the vegetables, but for additional protein a meat substitute like quorn is a good choice.
What Vegetables can I add to Noodle Recipes?
In this Singapore chicken noodles I add peppers, onion and spring onions, along with carrot, mushrooms and ginger and garlic.
But really you can add a variety of different vegetables to any noodle dish. Some great options are:
- Sugar Snap Peas
- Mange Tout (Snow Peas
- Baby Corn
- Shredded Cabbage
Best Curry Powder for Singapore Noodles
For these Singapore noodles I like to use a Malaysian Curry Powder which you purchase online from various places including Amazon. But if you struggle to find this I recommend using a Medium or Madras Curry Powder for flavour.
