Mi Xao Ca Ri Ga (Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Stir Fry Recipe) Recipe

We had Vietnamese chicken curry earlier this week, so I used the leftovers to make this delicious chicken and tofu dish (mì xào cà ri gà). I have an aversion to wasting food, but that doesn't mean that the second life you breathe into a dish has to be any less wonderful than the original creation.

I shredded the chicken from the curry dish and made a stir-fry adding cubed tofu and vegetables available this season. To complete the meal, I added egg noodles. The dish couldn't be simpler to make, and it will work whether you have meat, poultry or seafood.

Chicken Chow Mein Noodles

I prepare Chicken Chow Mein with king mushrooms, tofu, broccoli, sugar snap peas, green beans, carrots and red bell peppers. The dish couldn't be simpler to make, and is definitely a family favorite. It's a great alternative to pasta, and it's an excellent way to make use of leftovers. I often combine the leftover chicken from my poulet roti with whatever vegetables we have on hand.

Chow Mein is one of the few dishes I can cook where it's very easy to make both vegetarian and meat versions simultaneously. I just set aside a portion of the dish before I add chicken to the rest.

Vegetarian Chow Mein (Chinese Sauteed Noodles with Tofu and Vegetables) Recipe

I've noticed that kids love chow mein. It's probably because they are crazy about soft noodles in general. I usually make a huge pot of stir-fry green beans and tofu the day before and use the leftover to make chow mein. I love making chow mein, I think it's because of the sizzling sound of the stir-fry vegetables and noodles in the wok. And it's quite some exercise stir-frying and lifting a large quantity of food using 2 big spatulas, so you will feel like you've earned the calories when you eat it!

The combination of stir-fry noodles, vegetables and soy sauce is a  classic in Chinese cuisine. Make chow mein at home; there's no need for take out. It is always a hit.
