Sweet Chili Chicken & Noodle Bowl

This Sweet Chili Chicken Noodle Bowl is an easy, flavourful meal! It’s sweet and spicy with a fresh citrus burst from lime. So good!

This Sweet Chili Chicken & Noodle Bowl is really an extension of my Thai Sweet Chili Chicken recipe. We are obsessed with this chicken and make it fairly often. Its simple and flavourful and hits the spot!

The chicken goes so well with both rice and noodles but we found that lately, we have been tossing the chicken (and sauce) with noodles and devouring the noodle bowl!

I thought, I’d post the recipe here so that you could enjoy it this way too! While I didn’t include any veggies in this recipe, I highly recommend you add your favourites to the dish to make it a well-rounded all-in-one dinner!

Veggie options for this Sweet Chili Chicken & Noodle Bowl

There are so many veggie options that work really well with this dish so you really can’t go wrong. Some of our favourites are:

  • broccoli
  • sliced red bell pepper
  • broccolini
  • matchstick or thinly sliced carrots
  • snap peas
  • green beans

When to add the veggies?

It depends on the type of veggie you are adding to the dish. For broccoli and broccolini, I add them to the noodles as they are boiling.

For carrots, peppers, snap peas, and green beans, I saute them with a bit of oil in a pan to cook them to the desired tenderness. You can do this in your saute pan and then set them aside before you cook the chicken in the pan.

At the end, when you are tossing the noodles in the sauce, throw in your veggies too and get them nice and sauced up!

Hope you enjoy this dish as much as we do!

Bon appetit!
