BEHIND THE CHICKEN TOCINO CALAMANSI STIR FRY
I am thoroughly excited to have the opportunity to participate in this contest for the JSL Foods Fortune Noodle Blogger Recipe Challenge! They sent me some awesome Gluten Free Noodles to experiment with. I figured I would come up with a Filipino Fusion type of dish. So I decided to make this Chicken Tocino Calamansi Stir Fry Noodles! Yeah, I would’ve considered making the noodles like the traditional Filipino Pancit way but heck, let’s try something different. You know?!
Now, let’s take a journey into this tangy yet savory Filipino Fusion dish. Did you know that I used Gluten Free Udon Noodles in Garlic Chicken flavor for this recipe? These Stir fry noodles were drenched with fresh Calamansi Juice (also known as the Golden Lime) along with JSL Food’s Gluten Free Garlic Chicken Udon seasoning packet that comes inside their package. This is super easy to make and will take about 30 minutes of your time.
Remember my Chicken Tocino Tacos? I used that same Chicken Tocino recipe for this stir fry. You can use the store bought tocinos that are usually found at many Filipino or Asian Grocery stores.
- One Chicken Tocino Breast or Store Bought
- Fortune Noodles Udon in Garlic Chicken Flavor
- Sweet Mini Peppers
- Fresh Calamansis
- Banana Ketchup, Organic Coconut Sugar, Organic Coconut Aminos
- Hard Boiled Egg
- Green Onions
- Crushed Chicharons for the suprise topper!
Calamansi is widely used in the Filipino cuisine for marinades, condiments, juice, etc. It is the Philippine lime that’s golden in color. It is as small as the lime but when ripe it’s color changes into orange, similar to a mandarin. My Momsy has a Calamansi tree so I picked a few riped ones. If you don’t have fresh Calamansis, you can use fresh organic lemons. I used less than half the packet that came in with the Udon package to lower the sodium content. This is for my health’s concern. You may want to add more for flavoring. As always, please adjust all ingredients to your liking.
