Big Plate Chicken With Noodles Recipe


For marinating the chicken:

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 teaspoon light soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons shaoxing wine
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

For the rest of the dish:

  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 4 star anise
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 5 bay leaves
  • 6 slices fresh ginger
  • 5 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Sichuan peppercorns
  • 6 -10 whole dried red chilies (optional)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 carrot, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons dark soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons shaoxing wine
  • 8 oz. dried noodle of your choice, preferably a thicker-style flat noodle
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into chunks
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into chunks
  • salt to taste
  • 1 scallion, sliced


  1. Start by marinating the chicken. Cut the chicken thighs into bite-sized pieces and transfer to a bowl with the marinade ingredients. Set aside for 20 minutes while you prep the rest of the ingredients.
  2. When you're ready to cook, heat the oil in a wok over low heat. Add the star anise, cinnamon stick, bay leaves, ginger, garlic, Sichuan peppercorns, chilies, and sugar. Cook this mixture for 2 minutes, making sure it doesn’t burn. Add the chicken and turn up the heat. Stir-fry until the chicken is seared.
  3. Add the potatoes and carrots and stir-fry for a minute. Then add the dark soy sauce, light soy sauce, shaoxing wine, and 5 cups water. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to medium. Cover the wok and cook for 15 minutes, until the potatoes are tender.
  4. While the chicken is cooking, bring a pot of water to a boil. Follow the package instructions to cook the noodles. Drain.
  5. To your wok, stir in the bell peppers. Cover and simmer for another 5 minutes. Taste the dish and season with salt to taste. Now transfer the noodles to a large plate, and cover with your chicken and vegetables. Sprinkle with scallions and serve immediately.

If you want more sauce, add a little more water to the wok. If the sauce is too thin, just turn up the heat to reduce and thicken the sauce.
