I have a number of preferred aspects of this dish, however the 2 most significant are that:

  1. It utilizes the exact same sauce (or actually comparable) as what we utilized for the back pocket noodle stir fry. Tadahh! It’s simply back-pocket-noodle-stir-fry in Immediate Pot type. You’re currently acquainted with that magic, you currently have all components in your delighted little kitchen, you currently understand you’re gon na like it.
  2. Flexibility, child! If you like chicken, utilize chicken. If you do not like chicken … do not utilize chicken. Veggies? Any kind can work. I wished to attempt with broccoli however lacked time– does somebody wish to report back on that? Have fun with the nuts on top. Cashews rather of peanuts? Bonus hot sauce or chili pepps? Cilantro rather of green onion? Perhaps a capture of lime, or perhaps not. You are taking a look at a dish for a Noodle Blank Canvas. I thus state you a Noodle Artist who can go forth and make it precisely what you desire.

As I discussed, these are not your regular silky-smooth rice noodles. They are sticky and tasty. And sticky. Since they get prepared in the immediate pot, all the starch gets contributed to the sauce which adds to the sticky-delicious-factor.

If you are discovering yourself not incredibly thrilled about the sticky-ness, I detailed an alternate approach in the dish notes. It’s a little bit more hands-on which I normally attempt to prevent when utilizing the Immediate Pot (what’s the point if you get simply as lots of meals unclean? states the lazy lady) however it deserves your while if you are looking for SILKY rice noodles.
