Gluten Free Stir Fry Noddles

Noodles used for stir-frying are typically the size of Italian angel hair pasta, as you can see in the photo on this page. However, Asian noodle companies refer to them as vermicelli noodles. They are much thinner than the Italian-style vermicelli pasta, which is between the sizes of angel hair and spaghetti pasta. I used King Soba Organic Vermicelli Noodles.

Gluten Free Stir Fry Noodles Recipe

A flavorful Asian gluten free chicken and noodle stir-fry perfect for weeknight cooking or any night!


  • 1 teaspoon neutral flavored oil (extra-light olive, canola, etc.)
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1-1/4 pounds chicken breast, cut into small bite-size pieces
  • 2 red bell peppers, pitted and sliced into strips and cut in half
  • 1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup thinly sliced zucchini or vegetable(s) of choice
  • For the Sauce and Noodles:
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup gluten free hoisin sauce (Dynasty)
  • 3 tablespoon reduced-sodium tamari sauce (San-J) (or GF soy sauce)
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce (Dynasty) (*See Tips section for vegetarian sub)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red hot chili oil (Dynasty or homemade, or to taste (optional)
  • 1 (8.8-ounce) King Soba Organic Vermicelli Noodles* (or gluten free angel hair pasta)


  1. Preheat the oils in a 12-inch non-stick skillet or wok over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the chicken and stir-fry (quickly stir) until the chicken is no longer pink inside, not longer, about 6 minutes, depending upon size. Transfer to plate; set aside.
  3. Begin to bring the water to a boil.
  4. While you're waiting for the water to boil, preheat the skillet again over medium-high heat. Add the peppers, onion, and vegetables of your choosing. Lower heat to medium-low and saute for 8 minutes or until tender. (If using hardy vegetables such as carrots, be sure to cut them smaller than tender vegetables so that they all cook evenly, or add them first and later add the peppers and onion.)
  5. Once the water boils, add the vermicelli noodles to the water, stir, and cook for 3 - 4 minutes or until they reach your desired texture. Drain and rinse with cold water.
  6. In a measuring cup, add all of the sauce ingredients and stir to combine.
  7. Transfer the chicken and vermicelli to the skillet and top with the sauce. Toss gently until thoroughly combined cooking over medium heat until thoroughly heated. Serve immediately.


Kid-Friendly Version: Omit chili oil for kids.

*To make a vegetarian substitute for fish sauce, bring 3 cups of gluten free vegetable broth 1/4 ounce of dried sliced shiitake mushrooms, 2 tablespoons salt, and 2 tablespoons gluten free tamari or gluten free soy sauce to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for until it reduces to 1-1/2 cups. Strain into a glass container, allow to cool, and store in the fridge for up to 4 weeks.
