In India, the food of the Chinese Hakka settlers has been adapted to create tasty food within a hybrid cuisine that's neither Indian nor Chinese, but delicious! The country has been swept by an Indo-Chinese craze so much that its most popular dishes feature on menus worldwide, e.g. Chicken & Sweetcorn Soup and Chow Mein. Try our Hakka noodles with charred veg and spiced chicken for a unique take on a stir-fry.

Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180/gas 6. Mix the chicken with the Indian Spice Marinade on an oiled baking sheet. Cook in the oven for 15-20 mins. Mix the Indochinese Paste with the Hakka Sauce along with 1 tbsp of water in a small glass.

  • 2.

    Cook the noodles according to pack instructions, or until just tender. Heat a little oil in a non-stick wok over a medium-high heat, then fry the light green stalks of the pak choi with the carrots for 2 mins. Try to keep the heat as high as possible without burning the veg. (You want to get a little browning/charring and a nutty, almost smoky wok-fried flavour to the veg.)

  • 3.

    Drain the noodles, toss them in 1-2 tsps of veg oil (or sesame oil) to stop them sticking, then add to the wok and stir-fry with the veg. (Tongs are helpful here). Turn the heat down, pour in your Indochinese sauce mixture and stir well. Add the remaining green leaves of the pak choi and most of the spring onions and mix well. Add the cooked chicken pieces from the tray to the wok and mix really well with the noodles.

  • 4.

    Serve the noodles in bowls and sprinkle the rest of your spring onions over it. Drizzle a tiny amount of sesame oil over it (if you have it).

There greeeeat

Made this with quorn chicken - cooked the quorn chicken in the spices with a little oil in a pan (rather than in the oven) made the quorn really tasty and juicy. Absolutely delicious - think you should add this to the vegetarian selection of dishes!

Suzy - Sep 13, 2018

The spiciness overpowered the flavour which was a shame as it was quite tasty. First time I have cooked pak choi and I really enjoyed it. Cutting the carrots was a bit of a faff though

Katie - Sep 11, 2018

Great. Kids even liked it but a bit spicy in parts!

nicky - Sep 11, 2018

Mildly spicy, healthy stir fry dish that?s easy to prepare. Great for a midweek meal but good enough to share with friends too.

Paula - Sep 11, 2018

Excellent, authentic noodle dish which is easy to prepare and super-tasty.

Jen - Sep 11, 2018

Lots of flavour to this dish. Rather spicy so not for the faint hearted!

Stephen - Sep 11, 2018

When you can't decide to have Indian or Chinese takeaway, put take-away menus down and grab the Simply Cook Indochinese Hakka Noodles - they are much tastier and will save you money at the same time.

Noodle heaven

Rhiannon - Sep 11, 2018

Tasty, spicy chicken noodles. Felt light and perfect for summer.

wendy - Sep 11, 2018

Yet another stupendous recipe from Simply Cook! Very quick and easy to make. In fact I rustled this dish up shortly before going off on night work, sat curled up in front of the tv and scoffed most of it! it was so morish, I couldn't put it down. Seemed a shame to leave the rest at home so that came to work with me. The flavours are lovely.. noodles with a kick.....I want more!

Lesley-Ann - Sep 10, 2018

Plenty of heat but slightly lacking flavour

Kiara - Sep 10, 2018

I agree with another reviewer that it was a bit dry, but otherwise the flavours were amazing and it was really easy to make. I'm a non-meat eater so I substituted the chicken with Quorn which worked really well ????

Allison - Sep 09, 2018

Lovely dish

Carly - Sep 08, 2018

A lot of noodles... hope you’re hungry cause it is a big portion!

Quite spicy but nice flavour. Great dish to use other Vegs in stir fry. Could use any meat or fish instead of chicken and would be great too

Sally - Aug 30, 2018

I actually had to stretch this out for 4 people and it was still very nice!
