Chicken Tomato Noodle

by Janel Ku (@janelkuuu)

"For this dish, I went with an organic somen. Somen is really interesting. They are very thin white Japanese noodles made with wheat flour, and are usually less than 1.3 mm in diameter - like vermicelli!"

Serves 1 to 2

Prep time: 30 minutes

Difficulty: Easy


 Olive Oil
1 red onion, sliced / diced
2 teaspoons of chopped garlic
3 cheese slices
500g chicken breast, sliced into strips

Baby carrots, a bunch of them (up to you), diced
Cucumber (half), diced
2 tablespoons of Gavia Natural Sweetener
1 tablespoon of light soya sauce
Tomato Puree
5 tablespoons of water mixed with a pinch of cornstarch
1/3 of the Organic somen packet


Prepare all the ingredients for stir-fry. Mix the chicken slices with light soya sauce and some of olive oil.


Heat the wok with some olive oil. When the wok is well-heated, throw in the red onions and chopped garlic and let it sizzle and cook for a while.


When the garlic starts to brown, throw in the chicken and let it cook. Make sure it is 90% cooked and then throw in the diced cucumbers and baby carrots.


Stir-fry it for a while and put in half a can of tomato puree (about 6 tablespoons).


Put in 2 tablespoons of sugar into the mix and 5 tablespoons of water with cornstarch. Stir it a little and switch to low heat, let it simmer about 5 mins (with the lid closed). Check on it once in a while. If the stew gets too thick, add some hot water to loosen it up.


Start cooking the somen according to package instructions. (or boil the somen for 2 mins and set aside, rinsing in cool water.)


When the somen is cooled down, throw it into the tomato stew and let it simmer for another 5 mins.
