Chicken satay noodles

There's this shop few streets away that sells grilled chicken satay and around the corner , a hole in the wall , where you can buy fish balls dipped in satay sauce . Seeing people scarfing these tasty treats , the wonderful aroma that you can't help but to inhale as you pass by , no wonder I've been craving for something spicy and peanuty these past few days . 

I love noodles as much as rice , okay , more rice than noodles , and you can eat only so much gon chow ngau ho , so I'm always on the lookout for any stir fried noodle recipe . Actually , I've seen this recipe last year while I was browsing some food magazines at the library and only until now that I got to try it .

As with most stir fried noodles , making this is fuss-free . Just pan-fry everything , add in the cooked noodles and you're done !  The satay sauce though seems a bit thick so I added water before adding in the veggies . If you want it saucier , add more water , say , another a cup of hot water and no need to add any seasoning since the sauce is flavorful enough . Want a meatless version ? Try tofu , pan-fried it first , instead of chicken , or use veggies like cauliflower for a healthier alternative  .
