Preparation:

First of all, pour a liter of hot water (not boiling) over the rice noodles and let them soften for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the remaining ingredients. Start with chopping the onion, ginger, and garlic very finely. Peel the carrot and chop it or grate it so you get thin strips, slice the chicken into squares. Once this is done, scramble the eggs with a little bit of salt and black pepper. Prepare the sauce by combining the fish sauce, coconut sugar, soya sauce, and the lime juice.

Now we have all the ingredients ready so let’s get into cooking. Start with a slight pan-fry of the ginger, garlic, and onion in the little bit of olive oil. Proceed with adding the carrot, chicken breast, and a little bit of salt and black pepper. Fry it all together with an occasional stir, and if needed, add a splash of water to it. Once the meat is done and the carrot is softer, add in cooked rice noodles and give it a big stir. Make a little circle in the middle of the pan and pour the eggs in it.
