This is a great way to use leftover Lemongrass-Grilled Chicken.

  1. 8 ounces pad Thai rice noodles or other flat rice noodles
  2. 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  3. 2 large eggs, beaten
  4. 1 long hot red chile, thinly sliced
  5. 1 garlic clove, minced
  6. 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  7. 4 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stems discarded, caps thinly sliced
  8. 1/2 recipe Lemongrass Grilled Chicken, breasts cut into 1/2-inch strips
  9. 3 tablespoons Asian fish sauce
  10. 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  11. 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  12. Lime wedges and chopped cilantro, for serving
  1. In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook the rice noodles until pliable. Drain and cool under running water. Shake off the excess water and cut the noodles into 4-inch lengths.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil. Add the eggs and cook over high heat, stirring just until very loosely set, about 2 minutes. Transfer the eggs to a plate. Add the remaining 3 tablespoons of oil to the skillet along with the chile, garlic and ginger and stir-fry over high heat until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the mushrooms and stir-fry until softened. Add the rice noodles and chicken and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the eggs and stir-fry for 1 minute, breaking them up slightly.
  3. In a small bowl, stir the fish sauce with the rice vinegar and brown sugar. Add this mixture to the skillet and stir-fry until the rice noodles are coated and beginning to brown lightly, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and serve with lime wedges and chopped cilantro.
