Sate Chicken and Noodles - Chinese Style

"I've adapted this recipe from an old Womens Weekly Chinese cookbook, it's proven to be a hit in my household. The original recipe was for beef, so I imagine you could substitute this in my recipe. I've used broccoli, capsicum and spring onions, but you could add whatever vegetables you like."

Ready In:




  • For the chicken, cut into 3-4cm pieces and lightly pound with a meat mallet, so the chicken is of the same thickness.
  • In a bowl, combine the water and corfour, mix until it is paste-like.
  • To the bowl, add the soy sauce, black pepper, and sesame oil - mix well.
  • Add the chicken to the bowl, toss to coat, and then refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  • Combine the peanut butter, shaox hsi wine, curry powder, 5 spice powder, cayene pepper, water, soy sauce and sugar in a bowl. Stir until peanut butter has broken down and blended in with other ingredients. (Note: you might need to press down on the peanut butter with a spoon or fork as you're stirring).
  • Heat up water in a saucepan for the noodles. Add the noodles to the saucepan and cook as per instructions. Drain and set aside.
  • Heat up the oil in a wok and saute the chicken until browned. Remove and set aside.
  • Add the onions (and a bit more oil if needed), and cook a few minutes until they become transparent.
  • Add the garlic and cook a further minute or two.
  • Return the chicken to the wok, and then add the sauce.
  • Sit until boiling, then reduce heat and cook 4-5 minutes, stiring as needed.
  • Add the vegetables and half the spring onions, toss through and cook 1-2 minutes (Note: I like my vegetables crunchy).
  • Add the noodles to the wok, toss through - add a little more water if needed.
  • Serve in bowls and top with spring onions.

<img src=""> I love entertaining at home and having friends and family over for a meal is one of my favourite ways to catch up. I'm a working mother of one, so I'm often looking for things that taste and look fantastic - but are simple to prepare. Gone are the days when I'd spend all day assembling a meal for the night's dinner party! My husband loves to eat - and occassionally bbqs - and I'm hoping that one day the palate of my discerning 6 yr old daughter will enjoy both the outputs and endeavours of my kitchen. I'm always to looking for new ideas and inspirations. I also love to pass on my successful recipes to others. I frequently create or adapt dishes that I've seen, read or tasted someweere. I'm also conscious of my family's health, so am always keen to explore how I can reduce the fat content but keep things tasting delicious.
