Spicy Chicken Noodles

Today’s recipe is Spicy Chicken Noodles with Bell peppers. This recipe has so many variations and varieties. Noodles itself are of so many types with different textures and taste. Some of them are wheat noodles, rice noodles, corn noodles, soba noodles , etc. Among all, wheat noodles and rice noodles are loved by majority of people. Todays I have tried to prepare the street style chicken chowmein or noodles with red and yellow bell peppers and eggs. This is the best recipe according to me as it can be prepared in less than 30 minutes if you have every thing ready before hands. When you do not want to cook and yet want to eat something tasty then this the the perfect recipe for you. 

In this recipe first I have boiled the noodles according to the packet instruction. then I chopped onions garlics and bell peppers.(You can use as many vegetables as you want). I had only bell peppers so I used that only. (The most important thing to remember while cooking any Chinese dish is that your flame should be very high otherwise you will not get the desired results.) Firstly I have cooked the eggs in a wok then to that I added minced garlic and sliced onions and bell peppers. Sautéed for 2 minutes then to that I have added cooked and drained noodles. Added all the seasonings and sauces like light soya sauce, rice vinegar, salt, white and black pepper powder and little bit of sugar to balance all the taste. Cooked for 5-7 minutes over high heat. Add the end added chilli oil, sesame oil, shredded and boiled chicken pieces and coriander leaves.. Mixed it well and my super delicious noodles was ready.
