Garlicy chilli chicken dish. Quick and economical to make. This dish was prepared by my granddaughter and I using the only ingredients I had left in the fridge and cupboard. Meal was enjoyed by all.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 chillis

  • 5 cloves garlic

  • small piece ginger

  • 1 medium onion onion

  • 1 eggplant

  • 500 grams chicken thigh fillets chopped into bite size pieces

  • water

  • 1 packet Hokien noodles


  • 1.

    Roughly chop garlic, chilli and ginger.

  • 2.

    Add to oil in frying pan.

  • 3.

    Add chicken thigh fillets.

  • 4.

    Add diced eggplant and onion.

  • 5.

    Cook on medium heat adding a two tablespoons of water every 5 minutes - this stops the chicken from drying out.

  • 6.

    When brown cover the pan with a lid and cook till chicken and eggplant is cooked through - approx ten to fifteen minutes depending on cut of chicken.

  • 7.

    Soak noodles in boiling water for five minutes. Drain.

  • 8.

    Just before serving add noodles to chicken, stir and serve onto a plate.


Instead of using chickent thigh fillets, use wings chopped into three, diced breasts or drumsticks.
Add vegies like capiscum, beans and carrots for extra colour and bite.
Add a tablespoon of cream just before serving for a creamy sauce.
