Wonton noodles – Monday night special

Wonton noodles was a big favourite of mine when I was a kid, although I was never one for the accompanying dumplings. I had wonton noodles with boiled chicken in Singapore recently, however it didn’t quite hit the spot.

I was inspired to cook wonton noodles when I stumbled upon a blog over the weekend. I dragged hubby to an oriental supermarket ( we were almost in a crash en route!) yesterday and found them.

This is my take on a childhood favourite.

Wonton noodles served with garlic kai lan and pan fried chicken:

Ingredients:

  • 4 chicken thighs, boneless – marinated in 2 tbsp sweet soy sauce, a pinch of white pepper, 1/2 vegetable stuck cube, a pinch of salt, 1 tsbp cornflour
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 250g kai lan
  • sweet soy sauce
  • sesame oil
  • salt and white pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cube vegetable stock
  • fresh wonton noodles (enough for 2)
  • vegetable oil

Method:

(a) Chicken

  1. Heat some vegetable oil in a frying pan
  2. Pan fry the chicken thighs – 2 minutes on each side
  3. Transfer the chicken onto a foil lined baking tray and transfer to the oven at 180 degrees for 10 minutes
(b) Kai Lan
 
  1. Boil water in a medium sized pot
  2. Add 1/2 cube vegetable stock into the water
  3. Place a bamboo steamer over the pot once the water has boiled.
  4. Place the kai lan onto the steamer, cover with a lid for 5 minutes
  5. Heat some oil in a frying pan
  6. Brown the garlic for 30 seconds, and transfer the kai lan to the pan. Leave the pot of water on a low simmer
  7. Add a dash of water, soy sauce, salt and pepper to the kai lan. Stir for a minute and remove the pan from the heat
(c) Noodles
  1. Add the noodles into the pot of water (from step 6 above) and bring to a boil
  2. Add in sesame oil, 1 tbsp soy sauce, a pinch of salt and pepper into the water
  3. Cook the noodles for 4 minutes (or as per the instructions on the pack)
  4. Plate up : Using a pair of tongs, transfer the noodles (minus broth) into a bowl
  5. Pour 3 tsbp of the broth onto the noodles
  6. Slice up the chicken. Place chicken and kai lan on top of the noodles
  7. Serve with sweet soy and chilli dip (might need this for extra flavouring depending on your taste buds!)
