So last night I was craving a bit of Asian food. Which is not easy to come by in our part of Germany...at least, not within 5 minutes. So I decided to throw together some Chicken Teriyaki Noodle Bowls. This was pretty simple, all I needed to get was the veggie mix. We do have a pretty stocked pantry though, so double check if you need extra items.
*You'll notice that some of my items are in German but it's the same as the American products.
~ Ingredients ~
1/3 cup soy sauce (soja sauce)
2 tbsp red wine vinegar (I didn't have rice vinegar on hand but this works fine too)
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp toasted sesame oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 inches fresh ginger, grated
pinch of red pepper flakes
1 tbsp corn starch
2 tbsp water
Noodles, Chicken & Vegetables
8 oz buckwheat soba noodles
1 lb chicken
1 lb frozen stir fry vegetables (unseasoned)
1 tbsp vegetable oil
~ Directions ~
Add the soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, sesame oil, pepper flakes, corn starch, and water to a bowl.
Peel and grate the ginger straight into the bowl. I used a small cheese grater. Mince it if you don't have one.
Mince the garlic and add to the mixture. Stir and set aside.
In a large pan on medium high heat, cook your diced chicken. You could slice it too if you like.
In a large pot, bring water to boil and throw in your soba noodles for 4-5 minutes. Drain and set aside. I went ahead and threw the chicken on top of the noodles (for now).
In the large skillet OR pot (emptied of water of course), bring the 2 tbsp of oil to medium-high heat.
When the oil is hot, add in the frozen vegetables. Stir these until they are warm. About two minutes.
Add the teriyaki sauce mixture to the vegetables. Bring to a boil. Once it the sauce boils it will start to thicken. Reduced to a simmer and let it cook for about 4-5 minutes.
Now you can add back in your chicken and noodles. Stir so that all your noodles are covered in sauce and not clumping together.
And here's the finished product! Chicken Teriyaki Noodle Bowls! Hubby loved these. We did add a bit more soy sauce once we served it up. But how I made it was almost perfect.
