Chicken Yakisoba

When my husband decided to cook dinner last week, he chose a wonderful recipe from It is a tasty Chicken Yakisoba that tasted so good after driving all day with 2 kids in the car. We had just got home from vacation right around dinner time and he was sweet enough to be cooking me this great meal. I had been on vacation with my kids visiting my dad in Spokane WA and it was a long drive home since the kids were restless and tired from so many activities on their spring break from school. It was so nice to come home to a hot meal that I did not have to cook. I highly recommend this recipe and here is the link: Chicken Yakisoba if you do not want to print it from here.

Chicken Yakisoba

* 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
* 1 tablespoon canola oil
* 2 tablespoons chile paste
* 2 cloves garlic, chopped
* 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1 inch cubes
* 1/2 cup soy sauce
* 1 onion, sliced lengthwise into eighths
* 1/2 medium head cabbage, coarsely chopped
* 2 carrots, coarsely chopped
* 8 ounces soba noodles, cooked and drained

1. In a large skillet combine sesame oil, canola oil and chili paste. Stir fry 30 seconds. Add garlic and stir fry an additional 30 seconds. Add chicken and 1/4 cup of the soy sauce and stir fry until chicken is no longer pink. Remove mixture from pan, set aside and keep warm.
2. In the emptied pan combine the onion, cabbage and carrots. Stir fry until cabbage begins to wilt. Stir in the remaining soy sauce, cooked noodles and the chicken mixture to pan and mix to blend. Serve and enjoy!

- The only 2 things Richard did different is he used some toasted sesame seeds on top, which were not called for in the recipe, but it added a nice nutty flavor to this yummy dish. He also added some diced green onions on top because he said he wanted to make it look pretty so I could photograph it.. how sweet is he? He is pretty awesome!

Trust me... this is a great recipe!! Give some love while you're at it!!

I love allrecipes because you get to read what changes people have made to the recipe to make it better. This sounds great. You are lucky to have a husband who cooks. Mine does a great grill, but doesn't know how to use a stove!
