Instructions
  1. Place the dried rice vermicelli in a large pot and cover it with room temperature water. Let the noodles soak for 30 minutes until they are soft.
  2. While the noodles are soaking, heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Pour the beaten eggs into the skillet and swirl to coat the entire surface with the eggs.
  3. Let the eggs cook until the omelet is golden on the bottom, then flip it over and cook until the other side is also golden. Remove the omelet from the skillet, slice it very thinly, and then set it aside.
  4. In the same skillet, heat the rest of the oil and sauté the onions, garlic, and carrots until they are tender.
  5. Create a well in the middle of the cooked vegetables and add the chicken, tossing with a wooden spoon until the meat is just cooked through.
  6. Add the soaked vermicelli and drizzle the soy sauce over everything, mixing thoroughly until the ingredients are well distributed. Add the sliced omelet to the skillet, reserving a bit for the garnish, and mix some more. Season with salt to taste.
  7. Divide evenly into two bowls, garnish with sliced omelet and spring onions, and serve with sliced red jalapeños.

Cooking by the Numbers…

Step 1 – Prepare the Ingredients

Set out the dried rice vermicelli, vegetable oil, eggs, onion, garlic, carrots, chicken breast, soy sauce, spring onions, and red jalapeños.

Place the vermicelli in a large pot and cover the noodles with room temperature water. Let them soak for the next 30 minutes until they are soft.

Cut the vegetables accordingly – slice the onion, mince the garlic, and julienne the carrots into 3-inch-long slices. Slice the spring onions and red jalapeños.

Slice the chicken breast thinly into 3-inch-long pieces as well.

We slice most of the ingredients to ensure they are long in shape, to be in visual in harmony with the long, thin noodles.

If we were making fried rice instead, for example, it would make more sense the cut the ingredients into small cubes.

Step 2 – Cook the Omelet

Beat the eggs well. Heat up two tablespoons of oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat and pour the beaten eggs into the skillet. Swirl to cover the entire surface of the skillet.

Let the eggs cook for a couple of minutes until the bottom of the omelet is golden. Gently flip it over and cook for another minute until the other side is also golden.

Once the omelet is ready, remove it from the pan, slice it into thin pieces, and then set aside.

Step 3 – Sauté the Veggies

Using the same skillet, heat up the rest of the oil over medium heat and sauté the onions, garlic, and carrots for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring with a wooden spoon until the onions are translucent and the carrots are tender.

Step 4 – Cook the Chicken

Create a small well in the middle of the cooked vegetables and add the chicken strips, letting the meat cook for the next few minutes until cooked through.

Step 6 – Garnish and Serve

Divide the fried bee hoon with chicken and veggies evenly between two bowls, garnish with omelet strips, sliced spring onions, and serve with sliced red jalapeños. Tuck in and enjoy!
