Thai Rice Noodles With Chicken and Asparagus

"Oooooooh this is good! My husband said he now has no reason to leave me for an asian woman. Thanks alot!! I got this off of a rice noodle box. I like spicy food so its not too spicy for me but it does have chili sauce in it and also, I used salt instead of fish sauce."

  1. Sister#2 turned to me, her emerald eyes sparkling said, "well, it sort of tastes like canned chicken and the bark of trees". That's one that will do ANYTHING for attention. Allow me to interpret: she loved it.
  2. Excellent recipe. I subbed broccoli because I had that on hand. Thumbs up from the entire family. A keeper.
  3. This was outstanding! We swore we ordered take out (only better made at home). This will be made a lot. Thank you for posting. *I tripled the sauce only using 1/2 T. of fish sauce (Red Boat) and 1/2 t. salt. Used 1/2 lb ground turkey (needed to use it up) and added in some sliced onion. I can’t wait to try this using chicken. I can see many variations of this!

  4. Subbed frozen green beans... Delicious!
  5. Family LOVED this. Husband actually said, “you can make that again.” I too, as others noted, doubled the sauce. This one will be on a regular rotation. Thanks for sharing.


  1. this is truly a no-fail recipe. i wanted to try it be/c i had some rice noodles taking up space in my panty and because of its awesome reviews. i didn't have chicken or asparagus, or chili-garlic sauce/sambal oelek and this thing still turned out well. i replaced the chicken with shrimp and replaced the asparagus with peas. i used ketchup and chili flakes in place of the chili-garlic sauce. this is seriously so yummy! i can't wait to try the "real deal" when i have all of the ingredients!
  2. My family loved this one! I used the fish sauce instead of salt and lite soy sauce (lower sodium) instead of regular. We didn't find it salty at all. Excellent recipe. Thanks!
  3. The sauce was good not great...I added a tablespoon of creamy peanut butter (unsweetened!) and a little more Tamari (gluten free soy sauce) and it took it to great! Tasted far Thai to me this way. We gobbled it down. Delicious!
  4. This was fantastic. I used more noodles (about 10-12 oz) so I tripled the sauce. I used the fish sauce instead of the salt and I thought it made the recipe seem more authentic. I will definitely make this again sometime. Thanks for sharing!
  5. Oooooooooooooh (you didn't put enough O's in your title) this is good.. :) Loved It.. I used Egg Noodles instead of Rice- just cause' I was LAZY and didn't want to go to the store.. Came out GREAT! Next time I think I will use salt instead of fish sauce, the smell of that stuff is enough to make a drunk sober.. ;) Also added in two diced carrots.. YUM! YUM! YUM! Thanks for an easy, healthy, inexpensive meal.. :) Will for sure make again..
