Number of Servings: 12


    2 pkg. rice noodles (sticks)
    3-4 large chicken breasts, skinless, boneless, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    2 large onions, julienned
    5 tsp minced garlic
    6-8 large carrots, julienned
    3 large celery stalks, thinly chopped
    1/2 head cabbage, sliced
    1 pkg. frozen french-style green beans
    1 cup chicken broth
    1/3 to 1/2 cup soy sauce, depending on preference
    black pepper to taste
    3-4 fresh lemons, wedged - to serve on side


prepare chicken and vegetables. Since this takes alot of chopping, I make extra and keep for several days.

sautee half of the onions and garlic in 2 tbsp olive oil over med-high heat until onions are semi-cooked. Add chicken and cook until done. Remove and set aside.

Meanwhile, put rice noodles into a large bowl of very warm water and let soak (you may want to cut noodles in half with kitchen shears before soaking).

Sautee rest of onions, celery, and carrots in 1 tbsp of olive oil for 1 min. Add chicken broth, cabbage, and soy sauce to the vegetable mixture. Add back in chicken. Stir, and add in noodles (drained from soaking water). Stir mixture and cover pot and allow to cook for 10-15 min, stiring occasionally and checking liquid. You may add additional broth or soy sauce if liquid boils out before the vegetables are tender.

Season with black pepper and serve immediately with lemon wedges on the side. This dish is very good with fresh lemon squeezed over it!

This can also be made with just vegetables, for a vegetarian version, or with shrimp, pork, beef, or a mixture of all.

    This was a delicious dish. This had unique flavors and lots of veggies. I used baby bok choy instead of the green beans, but followed the recipe aside from that variation. The lemon was critical. We loved it! - 10/30/09

  • Excellent. I added sugar snap peas and some left over broccoli. Leftovers were great cold. A little to much garlic for us so I will adjust that next time. - 7/27/12

  • Very, very yummy. I made about half of the recipe and used the cornstarch noodles (very similar to rice noodles). Also added a couple of tsps of fish sauce and omitted the greenbeans. Really yummy left over, too. - 3/31/11

  • My family really liked this. I used prawns instead of chicken, baby bok choi instead of beans and lime instead of lemon.
    I'm curious what size the "package" of noodles is? I made 1/2 the recipe and used a 16oz package but it seemed like a LOT of noodles - 11/19/10

  • I made half, I would reccommend using low sodium soy sauce and broth, it's a little too much sodium. My family absolutely loved it including my picky 3 yr old! - 7/19/09
