This scrumptious weeknight meal is quick to put together and a total crowd-pleaser! Sweet, savoury, and hearty! Asian fusion meets the carrots you needed to use up in your fridge. Enjoy!


  • 2 truLOCAL chicken breasts, cubed
  • 2 carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 green onions, roughly chopped
  • 2 French shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 4 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/3 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 package rice noodles
  • 1 pinch sesame seeds
  • 1 pinch sea salt


  1. In a large wok (or skillet if you don't have one) heat sesame oil over medium high and throw in your carrot slices. Toss for 2-5 minutes until softened, then add onion, shallots, and the green onion. Lower heat to medium and mix well for another 5 minutes, until the onions are translucent.
  2. Add soy sauce, a dash of water, hoisin sauce and a pinch of salt. Add your cubed chicken and toss to ensure every ingredient is well coated. Lower heat to medium-low and cover for 10 minutes.
  3. While the chicken cooks, bring salt water to a boil and add rice noodles. They will be cooked and ready to drain within a couple of minutes! Drain and set aside.
  4. Depending on the size and thickness of your chicken cubes, your cooking time covered could be between 10-15 minutes. Once your chicken is cooked, serve over noodles in bowls and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  5. Enjoy!
