Chicken Yakisoba

 I have never had yakisoba, nor do I really know what it is. I do however love a good stir-fry, and to me, that is really all that this recipe is. A good stir-fry made with noodles. Ramen noodles, to be exact.
Since it is January, I have joined millions of others in making a resolution for the new year. This recipe helps me in a couple of my resolutions. It is a cheap recipe to make, especially since it has ramen noodles in it. It is full of veggies, which means it is healthy and good for you. So by making this recipe, you will help your budget and be healthier! Or at least it is a step in the right direction!

Chicken Yakisoba

                                                   1/2 head green cabbage, sliced thinly
1 medium yellow onion, sliced thinly 
2 medium carrots, shredded 
1 small crown broccoli, cut into small pieces 
2 inches fresh ginger, finely grated
3 large chicken breasts, sliced thinly 
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 (3 oz.) packages ramen noodles (seasoning packets discarded)
1 tsp sesame oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp ketchup
1/2- 1 Tbsp sriracha hot sauce
1 Tbsp sugar
Prepare the noodles, drain after cooking for 3 minutes. Toss with the sesame oil. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the grated ginger, saute for about 30 seconds to one minute. Add the chicken and cook until no longer pink. Once the chicken is cooked through, add all of the vegetables. Stir and cook until wilted, about 5-10 minutes..
In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, sriracha, and sugar. Use only ½ tsp of sriracha if you don’t want it spicy, use up to 1 Tbsp if you like it hot. Stir until the ketchup and sugar are dissolved. Pour the sauce into the skillet with the chicken and vegetables with the heat still on medium high. Add the noodles, stir to coat everything in the sauce, and heat through.

  1. Here's my question. Can you actually eat with the chopsticks? I can't! ;) Just wondering because it is something I have tried and tried and my hands and fingers just don't want to cooperate! Ha!

    1. It is a skill I am working on. I am not very good at it, that is for sure! What the picture doesn't show is the chop stick cheater top that I was using! Ha!
