I love a recipe that is easy to cook on a weeknight and doesn't take a lot of time or make a big mess! Chicken thighs are usually always on sale and very easy to cook (and forgiving because they stay moist), so I created Chinese Chicken Noodle One-Pot. This easy Chinese food recipe is made with chicken thighs, spaghetti noodles and stir fry veggies, and it is really easy to throw together. The orange juice adds a burst of citrus flavor that enhances this dinner. Try it today!

Spaghetti noodles in Chinese food? I wish I would have thought about using them sooner the Chinese noodles are so hard to find where I live or I have no clue what to buy, so I usually just eat out or order in but not after finding this recipe! The only thing missing is a few pepper flakes to give it a little spice and I bet angel hair pasta would be amazing with this recipe!

One pot meals are always a major draw card for most busy parents because it means they are probably really easy to cook on a week night after a long day working, right? And this Chinese Chicken Noodle One Pot recipe is a perfect example of an easy family meal when time is short. Our family loved eating it and I loved it even more because it was so easy to make!

I eat a lot of chicken so I am always looking for easy recipes that offer different ways to prepare it. I love the "one pot-ness" (my own word) of this recipe, and the use of traditional ingredients to create an untraditional flavor. I am looking forward to whipping this one up one day this week.

This recipe sounds as if it is simply bursting with flavour! And so quick and easy to prepare and cook too. The orange zest and juice conjure up the taste of duck a l'orange in my mind, even though this is essentially stir-fry chicken and veg on noodles. I wonder if using lime will give a Thai taste to it?

It is like stir fry over noodles instead of rice. And you cook it all in one pan! I really prefer using chicken thighs over the breasts. They have so much more flavor and are definitely not so dry. Some types of oranges are juicy than others. How much total juice is needed?
