I have made a million different versions of this dish and it’s good each and every time. Okay maybe not a million but a lot. This one is a Nigella Lawson recipe and what caught my eye was the sweet chili sauce, how can it not be good? Her version calls for ready-cooked egg noodles but I am cool with boiling my own noodles. I didn’t change a thing to this recipe however I did omit the bean sprouts and I added crushed red pepper because I like the heat. It was good, just as I suspected. Kaili gave it a thumbs up too!
