  • 4 boneless chicken thighs

  • 1 (8 ounce) package dried rice noodles

  • 2 tablespoons soy-based liquid seasoning (such as Maggi®), or to taste

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • ½ large head cabbage, thinly sliced

  • 2 carrots, julienned

  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt


  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add chicken thighs and boil until no longer pink in the centers and juices run clear, about 30 minutes. Strain broth into a bowl to reserve. Shred chicken thighs using 2 forks.

  2. Place noodles in a large bowl and pour in hot chicken broth, adding hot water to cover if needed. Set aside until noodles are softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Blanch noodles with cold water and drain well. Place into a bowl and add soy seasoning, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and sesame oil. Mix well and set aside.

  3. Heat remaining olive oil in a skillet or large wok over medium-high heat. Saute garlic in the hot oil until it begins to brown, about 1 minute. Add onion and cook for 2 minutes. Add chicken, cabbage, and carrots. Stir-fry for 3 to 4 minutes; season with garlic salt. Mix chicken mixture with noodles, add soy seasoning to taste, and serve.
