Thai Black Pepper Chicken and Garlic Noodles

Making Monday night Thai propelled food a thing thus upbeat about it. I’ve been stating this for quite a long time, however all I’m needing right presently is beautiful food, anything fun, and anything unique. Any sort of formula that I haven’t made previously. With life in isolate being a lot of the equivalent consistently, I’m appreciative to have food as an outlet for immediacy. Simply something else to separate the days, you know?

No doubt about it long story short, I’m exchanging up plans nowadays. I’ve made things like a whipped espresso white Russian, Mexican taquitos, and Italian style ravioli. I even wandered towards Cuban with my skillet gooey Cuban chicken and rice prepare and smooth coconut lime mojitos.

Cooking has been the main thing keeping me normal. What’s helping you all?

Anyway, today we’re venturing into some speedy cooking Thai food, and it’s genuinely my preferred sort of food.

Weeknight style 25 Minute Thai Black Pepper Chicken and Garlic Noodles. The super fast Thai chicken noodle bowl that looks like takeout,


  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts, thinly sliced

  • 2 tablespoons corn starch or flour

  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric

  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1-2 teaspoons black pepper, using more or less to your taste

  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil or extra virgin olive oil

  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar

  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

  • 8 ounces rice noodles

  • 2 medium shallots, sliced or chopped

  • 2 small heads broccoli, chopped

  • 1/2 cup raw cashews

  • zest and juice of 1 lime

  • 1/2 cup fresh basil or cilantro, roughly chopped

  • 3 tablespoons salted butter

  • 3-4 cloves garlic finely chopped or grated

  • 1/3 cup canned coconut milk


  • In a medium bowl, toss together the chicken, cornstarch, turmeric, ginger, black pepper, and 1 tablespoon oil.
  • In a glass jar, combine the honey, soy sauce, rice vinegar, red pepper flakes, and 1/4 cup water.
  • Cook rice noodles according to packaged directions.
  • Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When the oil shimmers, add the chicken and brown all over, until it becomes crispy, about 5 minutes. Add the shallots, broccoli, and cashews, cook another 2-3 minutes, until the broccoli is charring. Pour in the honey/soy sauce mix. Bring the sauce to a boil over medium-high heat and cook until the sauce coats the chicken, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the lime zest, lime juice, and the basil.
  • Meanwhile, heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the butter, garlic, and a pinch of red pepper flakes, if desired. Cook until the garlic begins to caramelize and turn light golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the coconut milk, cooking 3-5 minutes, until warmed through. Remove from the heat and toss the noodles with the sauce.
  • To serve, divide the noodles among bowls and top with chicken. Serve with additional basil and limes. Enjoy!
