Thai Style Sesame Glass Noodle #SundaySupper

Even though I have missed the first Mom 100 Cookbook event organized by #SundaySupper and am glad to be one of the participants for this round.  Thanks so much to #SundaySupper for giving me this opportunity.

Being a full time working profession, I always have time restriction to prepare dinner (the only meal that can prepare for the day) for Simon and myself.  Despite the advises from friends and relatives to have our meal outside as just two of us but we still believes homemade meals are most precious one.  I fully agreed with Katie Workman saying in her latest The Mom 100 Cookbook's website (The MOM 100 Cookbook) - "Because homemade not only tastes best, it is best for you."  I viewed all her kitchen tips from her blog and I am amazed! 

I have used one of her tips for this recipe - Getting all the Zest!  Amazingly, I save half of the time compare with my usual method.  Thanks Katie, you have made my day in the kitchen! 

Thai Style Sesame Glass Noodle is my choice for this event.  I choose Thai style because both me and Simon likes spicy food.  I boiled the glass noodle and toss it with dressing (combination of lemon zest and juice, fish sauce, sesame oil, sugar and chili paste).  I have also added in the minced chicken which I stir-fried with sesame oil to match the noodle.  I just used about 30 minutes to prepare this dish, hope all of you will like it too.

(b)  The Dressing
100 ml - Lemon zest & juice

200gm - minced chicken, marinate with pinch of salt

Some of the ingredients


To stir-fry the minced chicken, heat-up 2tbsp of sesame oil in a pan or wok, add ginger, toss it then add in minced chicken, sesame oil, soy sauce and chili paste.  Continue to toss until the meat turned brownish.  Remove from  pan and set a side.

In another pot, boil glass noodle until done (make sure do not over-cooked).  Remove from pot and drained.

To make dressing, combine lemon juice, fish sauce, sesame oil, chili paste, sugar & sesame seeds.  Toss noodles in dressing.
