Teriyaki Chicken Noodle Bowls

A quick fix dinner made in less than 30 min. And the teriyaki sauce is completely homemade and way better than store-bought!

Ingredients:

  • 2 (5.6-ounce) packages refrigerated Yaki-Soba, seasoning sauce packets discarded*
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced

Directions:

  1. In a large pot of boiling water, add Yaki-Soba until loosened, about 1-2 minutes; drain well.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and 1/4 cup water; set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan over medium heat, add soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, honey and 1 cup water; bring to a simmer. Stir in cornstarch mixture until thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 2 minutes; let cool to room temperature. Reserve 1/4 cup and set aside.
  4. In a gallon size Ziploc bag or large bowl, combine soy sauce mixture and chicken; marinate for at least 30 minutes to overnight, turning the bag occasionally. Drain the chicken from the marinade.
  5. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 3-4 minutes; set aside.
  6. Stir in Yaki-Soba and 1/4 cup reserved soy sauce mixture until well combined, about 2 minutes.
  7. Serve immediately, garnished with sesame seeds and green onion, if desired.

*Yaki-Soba is ramen-style noodles and can be found in the refrigerated aisle of your local grocery store.
