Thai Chicken with Noodles - WwDH
I was excited about this week's recipe from our Donna Hay group. It was chosen by Gaye, and it sounded great except that it called for pork. Chicken makes a good substitute (actually, I don't know that. Does chicken taste like pork?) Regardless, Gaye had made that suggestion and I took it and like it.
I tried two supermarkets and neither had lemongrass so that was my second change. I also omitted the mint since I just don't like mint in savory dishes. Of course, my favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip.
I, also had no luck finding mung bean noodles so I used brown rice vermicelli. I had to cook it differently from the book's unique directions but it still worked.
The rest of the ingredients blended well to give a really nice flavor to the dish. There was some brown sugar added to the mix and I always like a little sweet in my savory dishes. I would gladly make this again.
I am sure you will find the dishes made by Gaye, Margaret, and Kayte, to be just a bit different so go on over and visit them.
