- 1 pound of [boneless] chicken, cut into tiny bite size pieces
- salt and black pepper, to taste
- garlic powder, to taste
- 1/4 teaspoon of ginger powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
- cayenne pepper, to taste
- 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
- 2 teaspoons of apple cider] vinegar
- 2 teaspoons of soy sauce
- 1/2 cup of tomato ketchup
To make the chicken:
- Marinate your chicken with all the ingredients for the chicken [listed above].
- Cook over low to low-medium heat. Set aside.
For the vegetable portion, you need:
- 1/2 cabbage shredded thinly
- 2 bell peppers long 1/2 inch strips [I like using varing color combinations]
- 3-4 green onions chopped
- shredded carrots [or carrots cut into strips if you can’t find any]
- 1 tablespoon of soy sauce
- salt to taste
- black pepper to taste
To put together the vegetable portion:
- Heat oil to [stir fry]. Start off with carrots, and then add cabbage, green onions and bell peppers.
- Add soy sauce, salt, and black pepper. Mix. Set aside.
Note: stir fry the vegetables quickly because you want the veggies to stay crispy. Make sure you don’t over fry.
- Boil or let soak in warm water a pack of rice noodles (found in international/ethnic aisle of your grocery store) [by following the directions on box]. When I first started making this, the box usually instructed to boil but nowadays most just tell you to soak– and I find the texture better this way anyhow. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
- Once it is boiled, let it sit for a little bit and then stir fry the noodles. Set aside.
Tip: try using a brand of rice noodles that tell you to just soak the rice noodles in warm water, like I do, because I find that it works better and are much easier to work with. The ones I used to boil, I found that they stuck together when it came time to stir fry them.
- Cook about 3 cups of rice. Drain the water.
- Stir fry the rice. While stir frying the rice, add black pepper to taste and a little bit of soy sauce. Set aside.
For the sauce:
- Black pepper
- Chili powder
- Cayenne pepper
- Garlic Powder
To make the sauce:
- Take 2 parts of mayonnaise for every 1 part of ketchup. So if you take 1 cup mayo take 1/2 cup ketchup.
- Add in the other seasonings, and mix well. The color should be of a pink tint.
- Set aside.
Finally, finally, finally: you are ready to put it together! Exhausted, yet?
- In a [large] dish, add in the different layers.
- I add the rice at the bottom, then add in the chicken. Next, I put the vegetables on top, followed by the rice noodles. Finally, add the sauce.
