Another Quick Weeknight Dinner….. Chicken Teriyaki Stir-fry

Tags: ,

Dinner

Again, not my best picture, but this quick fix dinner was so good, I’m passing it on to all the busy moms/dads/peeps out there.

When I was shopping at Trader Joes last week I picked up a bag of pre-chopped stir-fry vegetables (cabbage, carrots, broccoli, bok choy, sugar snap peas, celery). I know they sell this at most grocery stores as well, so check your produce section.

While I was grocery shopping last week at Walmart (as much as I dislike the place, I still find myself shopping there!), I found these stir fry noodles in the asian section called Wel Pac Chuka Soba Stir-Fry Noodles . I was pleasantly surprised at how they turned out in this dish. Very much like the kind you’d order at a Chinese restaurant. Click on the link to see a picture of them. I’m assuming you can get then at any Walmart.

My boys really loved this dinner. I made some steamed rice to go with it, a very tasty 15 minute dinner!

Chicken Teriyaki Stir-fry

1 package Wel Pac Chuka Soba Stir-Fry Noodles
3-4 Tablespoons Canola or Vegetable oil
3-4 Cups prebagged stir fry vegetable mix
2 large chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
3 Tablespoons Teriyaki Sauce
1 1/2 Tablespoon soy sauce
Steamed Rice

1. Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
2. Heat oil into a large skillet or wok over medium high heat. When hot, add stir fry veggis. Stir and cook for 5 minutes or until softened. Reduce heat to medium-low and stir in chicken, cooked noodles, Teriyaki sauce and soy sauce. Gently toss to combine.
3. Serve with rice. Enjoy!

    Your picture is fine!

    I’ve seen soba at the store, but have never tried them. I can’t remember the brand, but it’s different than that one.

    I noticed you add cooked chicken to a lot of dishes. Do you buy precooked chicken, or do you cook the chicken yourself? I was just wonderng the best way to to do that

    Hi Emiline,
    I purchase the frozen chicken breasts from Costco then cook them in my pressure cooker. I LOVE using my pressure cooker, but if you don’t have one, I’d probably just bake it, then shred it or you can poach it too. Just takes a little longer.

    You can also use rotisserie chicken. I use that if I don’t feel like cooking chicken.

    Teriyaki sauce is such a great way to make a quick and tasty meal. Teriyaki sauce, meat, vegetables and stir fry and add some rice or noodles and done.

    Your pix always look great. I made the chicken with broc./rice last night. So good! I made that yummy spaghetti dish again tonight. It tasted good last time, but way better tonight. I had overcooked the bacon the last time around. Thanks for your recipes. I’ll have to try this one out soon.

    Kevin,
    I agree, so many things you can do with a good Teriyaki sauce!

    Hi Libby,
    Glad you are liking the recipes. I love the chicken broccoli dinner and the spaghetti. I make them both often! Have a great night!

    definitely a great weeknight meal! i would think that the noodles and stir fry alone would be enough, without the rice… making this an even quicker fix :)

    oh and your pic looks great, it looks like you meant for the light to fall on the dish, just so…
