Thai Chicken & Gravy Noodles ‘Rad Naa’

I’d always request this from Mum as a child – if you like pad see ew, this is a supercharged version with charred, chewy rice noodles, thick silky gravy and tender chicken. It’s everything you want in a dish. If you’re feeling adventurous, why not make the noodles from scratch, too – it’s surprisingly simple!


Thai Chicken & Gravy Noodles ‘Rad Naa’

10 minutes
10 minutes

3 tbsp vegetable oil 

300g (10.5 oz) fresh rice noodles* 

1 tsp sweet dark soy sauce 

200g (7 oz) chicken thighs, thinly sliced 

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped 

100g (3.5 oz) Chinese broccoli (in Thai called ‘kanaa’), thinly sliced on the diagonal 

1 cup chicken stock 

2 tbsp fish sauce 

1 tsp sugar 

¼ tsp ground white pepper 

2 tbsp cornflour mixed with 2 tbsp water 

chilli power to serve 


Chilli vinegar: 

1 long red chilli, sliced 

¼ cup white vinegar 



1 tbsp oyster sauce 

½ tsp ground white pepper 

  • Step 1

    For the chilli vinegar, combine ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside. 

  • Step 2

    Heat 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil in a wok or large frying pan over high heat. Add the rice noodles and spread them out and allow them to cook for a few seconds. Then stir-fry and allow them to cook undisturbed for another 30 seconds. Once the noodles are starting to char at the edges, add the sweet dark soy sauce and stir-fry for another half a minute. Transfer noodles to a serving plate. 

  • Step 3

    Mix the chicken with the marinade ingredients. 

  • Step 4

    In the same pan, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil. Add the chicken and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes or until cooked through and starting to char. Then add the garlic and stir-fry for a few seconds. Add the Chinese broccoli and stir-fry for another 30 seconds. Add the chicken stock, fish sauce, sugar and ¼ teaspoon of white pepper. Stir to combine and simmer for about a minute. Then add the cornflour mixture. Simmer for another minute until thick and glossy. Pour the hot chicken and gravy mixture over the top of the noodles. 

  • Step 5

    Serve with the chilli vinegar and chilli powder.

Quick to make & oh SO good!

Another favourite in our house!

You can not go wrong with one of Marion’s beautiful recipes.

The one is full of flavour while still being mild for the people who don’t do spicy. Or you can spice it up if you like.

Might have fight for the leftovers…if you manage to have any! 🤣

Thank you 😊
