Roasted Chicken & Egg Fried Bee Hoon

Home in found in a plate of noodles” – a quote from a friend’s status on Facebook.

Indeed, the awe-inspiring power of a plate of noodles and its humble ingredients and combined with its ability to virtually teleport you back to your homeland, across the oceans and the entire globe, is truly incredible.

Today I got home from cooking class, feeling in the mood to cook, but with a craving for an Asian dish peppered with flavours of home, well-being and family. Digging about the kitchen cupboards to see what ingredients I had in the sparse cabinet, I found, to my great delight, half a packet of dry bee hoon! Bee hoon, is basically thin and transparently-white rice noodles. You can make soup with it, fry it, eat it as part of a salad (I never do that), but the idea is that it’s versatile, just like all other carbohydrates. And, its very typically Asian.

So, with the perfect base ingredient to start with, I started peeking into the refridgerator to see what ingredients I could add the the noodles. I found, to my greater delight, that there was some roasted chicken left over from two dinners ago, and plenty of eggs. I decided I would settle for roasted chicken and egg fried bee hoon. It did satisfy my craving for an Asian meal, and it was nice to feel as if I was momentarily back in Singapore.
