Easy and tasty Chicken stir-fry with noodles and vegetables.
It’s a Low-Cost, 40|30|30, one-pot recipe that can be done in 30 minutes.
Chicken stir-fry with noodles, eggs and vegetables
I used to make this recipe whenever I needed an effortless but delicious comfort food. First of all it’s a one pot meal, which means a great time saver. When talking about food and meal prep, in general, tossing everything together and waiting till done… is the best.
It goes without saying that not having thousands of pots swirling all over the kitchen is even better.
Here in Milan we’ve got some bad weather coming in, it’s getting colder each passing day and having more structured and high calorie meals is absolutely essential.
This wok is a staple among my favourite tools.
Prepping meals in it is a snap and it doesn’t burn everything up as the usual pans used to …but you have to supervise it constantly.
When do I make this Chicken stir-fry with noodles and vegetables?
I’ve just started my new muscle building phase so carbs and calories are consistently getting higher and higher.
I dislike this phase, because it ain’t that easy increasing my total daily uptake. Especially during the very first weeks, it’s tough but going slowly it can be done properly.
My one-pot recipes come in handy especially when I train in the afternoon, craving an after workout super nourishing supper. This is one of those.
I make this chicken stir-fry recipe in the wok for 2 huge servings, but I might say it could feed 3 people easily.

To prepare this recipe you’ll need
- mixing bowl
This Chicken stir-fry with noodles and vegetables is made with:
Olive oil: usually I use extra vergin olive oil. As I often mentioned the Ligurian one is my favourite.
Zucchini and carrots: I buy loose fruit and vegetables every chance I get. Otherwise I get frozen veggies. Lately I see everything wrapped, even one single piece. It’s annoying.
Green beans and Green peas: both frozen.The fresh ones cost less but I prefer the taste of the frozen ones.
Tomato sauce: It’s a fresh smooth passata. If I’ve got time I make it from scratch. It’s easy and healthier.
Chicken breasts: from free range the better. Turkey meat is a good substitute.
Chinese vermicelli: for this recipe I used the mung beans vermicelli, but every kind of noodles is fine. I mean soba noodles, rice etc…choose what you like the most.
Worcester sauce: I love this fermented sauce, it tastes great on everything.
Whole eggs: or pasteurised egg whites if you want to lower fats a bit. But you Know… whole eggs give that something extra.
Ground ginger: I prefer the ground powdered ginger.
Pistachio grain: Iranian pistachios are the best, they are the leading producers as well as U.S.A. (I didn’t Know that!).
Salt and Pepper: a generous dash of both.
Product availability and suggested substitutions
Everything is quite easy to find in shops, grocery stores and supermarkets, but if something should be hard to find, here I suggest some swaps:
- Soba noodles, rice noodles, soya noodles for Vermicelli.
