Units Scale

For The Stir Fry

  • 4 ounces medium rice noodles
  • boiling water to cover rice noodles
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked, thinly sliced
  • 20 ounces frozen broccoli florets, defrosted
  • 8 ounces raw baby carrots
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • orange zest for garnish (optional)

For the Sauce

  • 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch


For The Stir Fry

  1. Place the rice noodles in a large bowl or pot.  Cover with boiling water and stir to separate the noodles.  Allow the noodles to rest for 8-15 minutes until al dente.   Drain, then rinse with cold water.

  3. Add the broccoli,  and cook until heated through, then toss in the cooked rice noodles.

For the Sauce

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the orange juice, maple syrup and corn starch.
  2. Pour the sauce over the chicken, vegetables and noodles and cook over medium heat until the sauce has thickened.
  3. Serve hot garnished with orange zest if desired.


About the Chicken Breasts

You can use:

  • Leftover chicken breast
  • Ready made rotisserie chicken breast
  • Boil raw chicken breast in water for 30 minutes until cooked through, then slice.
  • Slice raw chicken breast and then stir fry it in the garlic oil.  You may need to add additional garlic oil when stir frying the vegetables.

About the Onions & Garlic

If you don’t have an issue with onions or garlic feel free to add them to the recipe.  You can stir fry them with the chicken.

More Notes

If you want to use brown rice noodles, feel free.

If you prefer using fresh broccoli, blanch/microwave it first.  Don’t try to cook it in the stir fry.  It will most likely get mushy or won’t cook enough.  It’s best to blanch it before adding.

Love red peppers? Shiitake Mushrooms?  Other stir fry vegetables?  Feel free to add them.  Just make sure that if they are hard vegetables (like broccoli) that you blanch them before adding them to the stir fry.

Don’t like/want rice noodles?  You can use your favorite traditional rice (brown, parboiled, basmati, jasmin) instead.  Rather than adding the rice to the dish, serve the chicken and vegetable stir fry over a bed of rice.
