    Yup! You're not just eating them plain, are you?

    As others have said, they need to be served (cooked) with some kind of sauce, and in that respect you could buy a packet, as has been mentioned. However, if you *really* want to make them tasty, then you have to 'cook the flavour in'...

    So, do you have a wok or a decent frying pan?

    If so, in a very hot pan or wok, toss the rice noodles in some sesame oil, fresh garlic and chilli, light (not dark) soy sauce, and fresh ginger. The heat will infuse the flavours into the noodles and they'll taste amazing, and better than any bought packet of sauce!

    *But* watch you don't overcook them. If the pan or wok is hot enough, then you're only talking a matter of minutes to stir-fry through and serve. Enjoy

    Marco.

    I've seen Japanese and Chinese eat them plain.

    I have got a wok but I was hoping to avoid introducing an unnecessary third stage. Remember 'Doll' noodles? They had a little sachet of powder you chucked in with them to give the some flavour. But you don't seem to be able to get them anymore.

    I very much doubt they'd have been plain. Most likely they'd have had at least some soy sauce on them, or they'd have been seasoned in some other way...

    Introducing an unnecessary third stage? Lol... You mean you'd rather be lazy and not do any real cooking?

    Well, it's up to you. Food's like anything else in life: you only get out of it what you put into it!! You don't need a wok. A decent-sized frying pan will do.

    Best leave the noodles plain and have sauce with the chicken. Some veg too would be good. Tesco do various bags of fresh stir fry veg, do them with a bit of seasoning.

    I'm not keen on sauce on chicken. Might try some soy sauce on the noodles, that sounds easy enough. Anyway I've scoffed it all now. It's boozing time!

    Course it's my pic. Just tried a close up. Was good. I'm still soldiering on with diet. Getting to the nitty gritty stage where u don't notice so much and thus have to be on ur guard.
    Too early to say yet how much improvements there is but I'm determined to get there

    It's the taste of the noodles he's finding is lacking, so how will adding sauce to the chicken improve matters there, daftee?

    In any case, chicken goujons aren't a Chinese thing, so they're not really designed to be eaten with a Chinese-style sauce, or for that matter, rice noodles. If it's just plain chicken strips, however, then that's a different matter.

    If it's actual goujons Martin has though, then all they need is heated up and served with some garlic mayo and a wedge of lemon!

    Good stuff on both accounts... In that case, your picture looks quite professional!

    There's one by the football ground but it's about a mile and half to walk. Do they still sell them then? They don't in the supermarkets.
