Shredded Chicken Rice Noodles, a healthy and wholesome one dish meal that is quick and easy to make.
Shredded Chicken Rice Noodles, more commonly known to Singaporeans as Shredded Chicken Hor Fun, is like a previous recipe I had shared before (Fried Rice Noodles with Egg Drop Sauce). This fuss-free recipe does not require any frying at all. All ingredients are boiled and blanched instead, making it a healthy well-balanced meal. It is so wholesome and satisfying. A perfect weeknight dinner option, especially since school has started or will be starting soon for most families.
