I must admit that i approach any Thai meal with blind faith! I mentioned before my devotion and love to Thai food and how it tickles my senses with all its beauty, colors and aromas.

I like to cook all types of cuisines but when it comes to Thai, i believe it’s kind of art and every dish is a master piece. This colorful sesame chicken noodles is so flavorful and easy to come together!


You will need: (4 servings)

  • 400g noodles cooked as per pack instructions
  • 500g chicken breast cubed or cut lengthwise
  • one big onion chopped coarsely
  • 1/3 cup sesame oil
  • 2 big carrots cut thin and lengthwise (about 1 cup)
  • 2 medium capsicum (green and red) cut in medium squares (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 /2 cup red cabbage chopped coarsely

  • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 scallions chopped coarsely (about 1/2 cup)
  • 4-5 mushroom sliced (about 1/2 cup)

Heat up the oil then add chicken and onion, stir-fry until onion is fragrant and chicken starts to turn opaque. Add carrots, capsicum and cabbage to cook for 3-4 minutes. Pour in sweet soy, sweet chili, white vinegar and water and simmer for 5-7 minutes or until the veggies starts to get a bit tender. Stir in scallions and mushroom then simmer again for another 2-3 minutes.

Serve with cooked noodles (or if you prefer steamed rice) after sprinkling some sesame seeds on top (as per your taste).

tangy orange sesame chicken

orange sesame chickenA favorite dish of mine, involving crisp, fried chicken bites smothered in a wonderfully sweet and tangy orange sauce.

It’s an easy recipe, served in less than 30 minutes.

orange sesame seeds


  • 2 large eggwhites
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 500g chicken breast cut in cubes
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 scallion trimmed and sliced
  • 1 cup fresh orange
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp soya sauce

In a large bowl, whisk together egg whites, cornstarch, sesame seeds and salt until you get frothy and fluffy batter.

Using egg whites instead of whole eggs (or yolks) in the batter creates a crispier coating.

Add the chicken and toss to coat.

Heat 1/4 cup vegetable oil in a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat.

Cook chicken until golden and crisp, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Work in several batches, you don’t want your chicken to be cluttered.

Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
