Chicken Macadamia Stir-Fry with Noodles {RECIPE + GIVEAWAY CLOSED}


The other week, I received an email asking if I’d be interested in cooking with Suncoast Gold Macadamia oil. Why yes, I would. Thank you very much.

I’m always up for trying new ingredients and recipes. For me, macadamia nuts have always been a chocolate coated treat which we send as “Aussie” gift to family and friends overseas.

Did you know that macadamia trees are native to Northern NSW and Southern Queensland? For thousands of years before European settlement, the aborigines ate the native seed that grew in rainforests of eastern Australia.

Suncoast Gold Macadamia Oil is the all-Australian alternative, made from the finest macadamias sourced from Noosa to Byron Bay. 100% Australian. Gotta love that, right?

Chicken Macadamia Stir Fry with Noodles

Chicken Macadamia Stir-Fry with Noodles
Serves 4

1 400g packet of hokkien noodles
3 tablespoons Suncoast Gold Macadamia Oil
250g skinless chicken strips (I used chicken thigh meat)
1/2 red onion
2 cups of vegetables chopped/diced (beans, carrots, mushrooms etc…)
75g dry roasted Suncoast Gold Australian Macadamias
1 lime
3 tablespoons of sweet chilli sauce
Coriander (I used coriander paste, though fresh would be better)

Soak the noodles in boiling water for 1-2 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Heat the wok, add the oil.
Add the chicken, onion and stir fry for 3 minutes (until the chicken is golden and onions have softened).
Add the vegetables and stir fry for another couple of minutes until they’ve softened, though still crunchy.
Squeeze in the juice of the lime, add the sweet chilli sauce and coriander.
Finally toss in the noodles and macadamia nuts.
Serve and enjoy!

Do you use Macadamia Oil in your cooking? Up until last week, I hadn’t tried it, but have experimented with it in my cooking. I even made a batch of stove top popcorn with it, for movie night on the weekend.

    My wok gets a dash of Macadamia oil,
    then I put on the rice to boil.
    Broccolini, mushrooms, cashews and beef,
    an asian stir-fry just can't be beat!
