Teriyaki Chicken Udon

An easy stir fry that will have you licking the bowl and ditching the takeout! I opt for carrots, broccoli and mushrooms for my vegetables of choice, but you could easily swap these for some of your favorites – red bell peppers and snap peas would be great additions! The chicken marinade also doubles as a delicious sauce to coat the noodles as it thickens as it is cooked. This dish is a bit sweet, salty and spicy and the chicken is so tender. Make this when you are craving a warm bowl of delicious noodles!

For the Chicken:

  • 2 Chicken Breasts, Cubed
  • 1/2 Cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/3 Cup Rice Vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Sambal Oelek
  • 1 Lime, Juiced
  • 1 Tbsp Minced Ginger
  • 6 Garlic Cloves, Minced

For the Stir Fry:

  • 1 Tbsp Peanut Oil
  • 1 Cup Carros, Sliced
  • 2 Cups Broccoli Florets
  • 8 oz Mushrooms, Halved
  • 2 Packages Udon Noodles, Cooked

For Topping (Optional):

  • Green Onions, Diced
  • Sesame Seeds
  • Sriracha

To Make:

  1. First, let’s start by marinating the chicken. In a large mixing bowl, add the soy sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar, sambal oelek, lime juice, minced ginger and minced garlic and whisk to combine.
  2. Add the cubed chicken in to the marinade and set aside to marinate for at least 60 minutes.
  3. While the chicken is marinating, prep all the vegetables and cook the udon noodles.
  4. Now let’s get everything cooked up! Heat a large pan over medium heat and add in the peanut oil. Once heated, add in the carrots and broccoli florets – cook for 8-10 minutes until they start to soften.
  5. Next, add in the mushrooms, chicken and any leftover marinade. Cook for another 10-12 minutes, stirring frequently until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce thickens.
  6. Lastly, reduce the heat to low, add the cooked udon noodles and toss to well combine!
  7. Turn off the stove and divide the stir fry between 2-3 bowls. Top with sesame seeds, diced green onions and a drizzle of sriracha if desired. Serve and enjoy!
