Thai Canned Chicken Noodles

Recommended Posts

Hmm.. nothing frozen nothing fresh challenge cook…( @ckreef curse you....)  what to make…definitely a challenge.   This one has really had me thinking,  hardest challenge yet.... At some point I thought about chicken, canned chicken.  I’ve never used canned chicken before, so that became the starting point.  I love various Asian cuisines, so this is my take on Thai Chicken Noodles.   

Basic recipe/ingredients.

  • 1 12oz can cooked chicken

  • Rice noodles, half bag about 8oz.

  • Sauce:  3-4T soy, ½ T rice vinegar, ½ T sugar

  • Dry spices:  ginger powder, garlic powder, onion powder, basil

  • 1/2 cup of dried veggies (carrots, onion, red pepper, green pepper, corn, leeks)  

  •  To bring a little “heat” and some floral notes, I used my new mixture of Sichuan peppercorns that have been soaking most of this week in several ounces of vodka.  I used 2 teaspoons of the Sichuan Vodka.  I’ve read and heard how Sichuan peppercorns have a numbing effect, they really do…one hint… be careful not to sip too much liquid when sampling it.

For the Kamado portion of the cook, I reconstituted the dried veggies on the Big Joe, as well as smoking the chicken for about 10 minutes

I brought it altogether in the wok, over a high heat propane turkey fryer burner.

Heck Yea that's the way to rock out a wacky challenge. Great entry. 



Thx CK     It was almost painful to make this entry.  I love using fresh ingredients, the fresher the better.  like fresh basil and chives from the garden.  Any idea how hard it was to spend $6 on a small container for dried basil.

fish everything looks fantastic but  if i used your wok cooker i would never stand erect again.



Im with you, I really need a new one that sits much higher.  for a turkey fryer its fine, but for wok cooking it's far to low. I usually sit on a small stool.   this cook was more challenging as the flame sensor is  failing (or needs a good sanding) as it was cutting out during the cook.  I had to hold the valve open with one hand, cook w/ the other hand, all the while squating.   thankfully wok cooking is relatively quick......  time for a new one as this one is headed for recycling.
