One Pot Chicken and Hoisin Noodles with Bok Choy

File this under one of my favorite family meals. We’ve got braised chicken thighs, soft Shanxi noodles, a sweet and savory hoisin sauce, box choy and lots of scallions. Very well rounded and very flavorful.

I am lucky enough to have a local Asian market that sells a plethora of noodles, so it was very easy for me to source Shanxi noodles. If you aren’t as lucky as I am, DON’T WORRY! You can try this with 1 box of thickrice noodles. Just make sure to submerge the noodles completely into the liquid as it bakes. Lanzhou or biangbiang noodles work great here too if you can find fresh!

If you don’t know of a local Asian market near you, google H-Mart and see if there’s one near you. It’s 100% worth it to go check it out if you are a food geek like me. 🙂 Tutorial video on Tik Tok, linked below.

Heat a large Dutch oven on medium high. Dry off the chicken thighs once more with a paper towel. Place the chicken thighs skin side down in the hot Dutch oven and let the fat render for 5-10 minutes, until the skin is golden brown and crispy. Remove the chicken.

Reduce the heat to medium. Add the onion and cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently in the beginning so the onion doesn’t fry in the hot chicken fat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1-2 more minutes.
