Fried Soy Bean Noodles With Chicken and Lettuce 鸡肉莴苣炒豆签

Last few days, as usual, I targeted to clear the fridge. Hence, I used up whatever ingredients in the fridge to come out with this fried noodle. Never expect under such circumstances, I could discover a new finding. I found out that Chrisphead Lettuce tastes very good in fried noodle. To proof the finding is right, I even tried it in fried rice. It didn't fail me. The fried rice turned out great too.

Another ingredient that contributed to this fried soy bean noodle is the fried chicken strips. I used it as Protein substitute to prawn. That's a new flavor that I love. It's never too late to know the ingredients, the cooking styles and the flavors that suit your taste buds. That's the fun I got from cooking.

AH! Lettuce hey? I like that idea! Fried noodles or rice is the best way to use up leftovers!

Lovely! The lettuce must have given a refreshing hint to the fried noodles; I too like it in my fried rice : ).

Does your crisphead lettuce look like this? I love 莴苣 specially the stems. Just simply blanch thin stem slices, toss in sesame oil, salt and white pepper - it is so good! Bet it adds great flavor to the noodles too.
