Chicken Yakisoba

Chicken Yakisoba on blackDo you get lost in Pinterest?

I do.  I always tell myself, I’m only going to say on for a certain amount of time.  I get so crazed pinning, I forget to look at the time, which by then, has far surpassed my limit.

One day not so long ago, I was looking for some inspiration for dinner.  I was tired of making the same old chicken, when I came across Chicken Yakisoba.  It looked yummy, lots of veggies and only one chicken breast for 6 servings, it was a keeper.  Even better, I had most of the ingredients right there in my kitchen, I did make a few substitutions.  Now I’m not sure what Chicken Yakisoba means but, after making my version, it must mean YUMMY!

Here’s how you make my Chicken Yakisoba ~


1 Napa Cabbage ~ thinly sliced

1 Medium Onion ~ thinly sliced

2 Medium Carrots ~ grated, using a box grater

1 Bag Frozen Chopped Broccoli ~ thawed and drained

1 Tablespoon freshly grated ginger ~

1 Grated Garlic Clove

1/2 Bag Frozen Peas

1 Large Chicken Breast ~ cut into bite size pieces

2 Packages of Ramen Noodles ~ discard spice packages

1 Teaspoon Sesame Oil

1/4 Cup Low Sodium Soy Sauce

1/4 Cup Worcestershire Sauce

2 Tablespoons Ketchup

1 Tablespoon Tabasco ~ use less or more, depending on your taste

1 Tablespoon Sugar

2 tablespoons Vegetable Oil

In a medium size pan, boil water.  Once water is boiling drop in noodles and cook for about 2 minutes, drain and put back into pan.  Add sesame oil to drained noodles, stir.  Set aside.

Heat vegetable oil over medium heat in a large fry pan or wok.  When oil is hot add garlic and ginger, constantly stir to not burn.  Add chicken pieces to the garlic and ginger and cook until no longer pink inside.

Once chicken is cooked add all remaining vegetables.  Cook until vegetables have wilted, about 8 minutes.

In a measuring cup (so it’s easy to pour) combine the soy sauce, worcestershire sauce, ketchup, tabasco and sugar.  Whisk ingredients together until sugar is dissolved.

Once vegetable have wilted pour liquid ingredients and noodles over vegetables and chicken mixture.  Stir to combine.  Heat through over medium heat.
