Ginger, Chilli and Lime Chicken Thighs with Coconut noodles
I wanted to make ginger chicken as I have been hearing about it. Plus it gave another excuse to use up my noodles and stir fry. It turned out really delicious as I love food with chilli and spices. The noodles had crunchy vegetables as well. I like using Pak Choi in my noodles as well. The coconut milk in the noodles balances the whole thing out.
This dish can be adapted in so many ways. You can also use beef in place of the chicken. In addition, you can use whatever vegetables you want in the noodles. Feel free to share what you come up with.
