Quick Dry Tossed Noodles With Chicken Fat 特快雞油撈麵

What do you eat when you are on a run or run out of food in the house? This is what I prefer to have when such situations occurred. I always have different types of dried noodles in my pantry; together with my standby chicken fat, lard or garlic oil, a delicious and wicked meal is only a few minutes away. I am always satisfied after a bowl of this but feel free to add some leftover roast chicken, some char siu or perhaps a fried egg if your heart desires. This will only take a minute longer than cooking a packet of instant noodles and you know you are eating something real and delicious instead! Happy cooking and have a great weekend!
P.S For an equally tasty version substitute chicken fat with garlic oil and oyster sauce with mushroom sauce.

serves one as a super quick meal
you'll need;
1 - 1.5 bundles of dried wheat noodles
bokchoy or Asian greens of your choice
1 spring onion, chopped
1 bird chili, sliced
crispy shallots or crispy garlic
chicken crackling

for the dressing;
1.5 tbs of chicken fat
1.5 tbs of oyster sauce
1/2 tbs of caramel sauce (生晒油)
1 tbs of light soy
1 tbs of the noodles cooking water
pepper to taste

If you prefer something a little healthier, substitute chicken fat with garlic oil instead.

Prepare the dressing.

Cook noodles til al dente, drain well and add to the prepared dressing.

...and mix well.

Add blanch bokchoy and top with chopped spring onions, sliced chillies, cracklings and some fried garlic or shallots. Sometimes I add an extra fried egg too.

Mix well and enjoy. Try this simple but completely wicked noodle dish and say goodbye to msg laden instant noodles for good!
