Kwonlow mee with roasted chicken

What is kwonlow mee? Well, it’s a dry noodle toss in black sauce serve with meat and vegetables. It’s very popular in Malaysia and Singapore. We usually have it for breakfast with char siu or siew yok and comes with a small bowl of prawn dumpling soup. In fact, can be served at lunch and dinner too.

I change it a little knowing me love to create and explore the various ingredients. I added leftover roasted chicken instead of char siu or siew yok. I didn’t make the dumpling soup.

I am happy to share it with you as this is my father’s favourite easy meal. He love it so much he can have it for breakfast lunch and dinner. Today, I made it how my father did it. It turn out well. Thanks to God for helping me to create this dish. By tasting and adjusting the sauces to make it taste delicious and comfort meal. Let’s cook!!!

leftover roasted chicken (bought)


1 Tbs dark black caramelised soy sauce (kicap manis)
1 Tbs sesame oil
