Whenever I have leftover rotisserie chicken, I make Mie Goreng: Indonesian fried noodles with chicken. Even if you don't have leftover rotisserie chicken, still make it. You can get a $5-6 cooked chicken at your local grocery store! It's crazy! Pull the chicken off, cut it in cubes and you're on your way.
I've had mie goreng in the states and I've eaten it in Asia as well. What's great about this dish is you can really make it your own. Start with noodles. You can get yellow noodles at your local Asian market, but you can also use the linguine you have at home. I would recommend a thicker noodle for this, but in a pinch spaghetti could work too.
It's best to make sure you've got all your ingredients ready to go so when it comes to assembly you're ready! One of the keys to the sauce is the Indonesian sweet soy sauce. You can usually find this at your local Asian market. You can see the bottle I use in the video - it's called ABC Sweet Soy Sauce. It's not only great for this recipe, but when I make cashew chicken I use it for that sauce too.
Chicken, Veggies, Noodles and Spicy Sweet Sauce: Pure Comfort Food
When I am craving an Asian noodle dish this is a great go-to meal. There is no need to order take-out. Trust me, you can make this and it will be fantastic! My favorite part is the sweet and spicy sauce. And you can control how much spice you want! You want less spicy - decrease the Sambal a little! Another great thing about Indonesian fried noodles with chicken is everyone can customize their bowl! This dish is best when cooked one or two portions at a time. Trust me on this, I once tried to put all the ingredients in my wok for 6 portions and it was a messy disaster. Oh, and if you don't have a wok - don't stress. Use what you have. It'll be fine.
