Quick and simple stir-fries and noodles are our favorite things to make during the week. They come together in less than 30 minutes and are great for using up ingredients you have in your fridge and pantry.

SO HOW DO YOU MAKE THESE CHICKEN STIR-FRY NOODLES
- You’re going to start off by soaking the rice noodles in a big bowl of hot water. The great thing about rice noodles is that they are gluten free and are ready in about 8 minutes. The ones I used for this recipe are about 1/4″ thick like you would find in Pad Thai or Pho. You can usually find them in the Asian aisle at most large grocery stores.
- Next, you’re going to brown the chicken over medium-high heat in a large wok or skillet then transfer to a plate. Saute the ginger, garlic and vegetables until they are just crisp tender.
- A well-balanced and flavorful sauce is the most crucial component when you want to make a memorable noodle dish. The base of this sauce starts with Soy Vay®’s Veri Veri Teriyaki® Marinade and Sauce. It’s deliciously sweet, savory and we combined it with a hint of orange and red chili paste to add an unexpected sweet tang and kick of heat
- All that’s left to do is toss everything up in the pan until coated and heated through.
Serve hot with some roasted cashews along with a sprinkle of sesame seeds and you’ve got a mouthwatering dish for National Sauce Month or any spring occasion!
