  1. Hello! I hate cooking! This seems like a delicious and easy recipe to make that my whole family will love! Keep the wonderful recipes coming. Your site looks fantastic, very nice layout!

  2. Wow, the chicken sounds divine, with poppy seeds and lemon marinade. I enjoy my rice noodle, with veggies. The whole package sounds filling and the peas make the meal pop. You know you eat with your eyes before you eat with your mouth.

    Thank you for a well prepared delirious noodle inspired chicken meal.


    1. Yes, I love it when a meal looks as good as it tastes!  I love rice noodles as well as it’s a nice change from pasta and rice.  Enjoy!

  3. Cynthia,

    I love the simplicity of your menus. I’m a fairly competent cook, but I find most of the online recipes to be intimidating or very hard to get to. They have tons of pop-ups and it’s hard to even find the “Jump to recipe.” I could read your recipe right at the top.

    Regarding the recipe itself, i’m eager to try it because it looks easy to make and very healthy. Very light, so that even a lunch portion wouldn’t make me want to take a nap!

    Thanks again.

  4. I found this recipe to be very interesting and had to try it with a few changes like instead of chicken I used pork and increased the amounts to make it large enough for the whole family. We loved it and the rice noodles are a great addition to the usual rice or wheat noodles.

    1. This is what I love about cooking at home…you can make all the adjustments you want!  I’m happy you enjoyed it.

  5. I’m always looking for new recipes to serve my family and this lemon poppy seed chicken with rice noodles fits the bill. My youngest loves anything with pasta, and I love that you use the healthier rice noodles. You also include the protein and vegetables, eliminating the need for me to create additional sides, which is always a win in my book!
