We’ve been eating a lot of comfort food the past several weeks (months?) The weather has been so cold, and when it’s so cold, I reach for the carbs. This next week is supposed to be nicer (warmer – maybe even 60s one day!) and we’re planning several days of salad. Our waistlines will thank us later…we hope.

We tried this eMeals recipe last week on one of our snow days. It’s from the budget friendly menu and it was a total hit. There’s a good balance of vegetables and noodles. I actually used about half of the pasta that it called for (and used a lot more vegetables.)

Asian Chicken Noodle Bowl

Asian Chicken Noodle Bowl

Ingredients

  • 12 oz thin spaghetti, broken in half
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • Ā½ cup soy sauce
  • Ā½ cup beef broth, made with bouillon
  • 3 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 (16-oz) pkg frozen stir-fry blend with sugar snap peas
  • 3 cooked chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
  • ā…“ cup chopped fresh cilantro OR 3 tsp dried cilantro

Instructions

    Cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain and keep warm, reserving 1 cup pasta water. Whisk together garlic, ginger, soy sauce, broth, vinegar, sesame oil and honey. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sauce mixture and vegetables to pan; toss and cook 3-4 minutes or until thoroughly heated. The vegetables should be crisp-tender. Add chicken to skillet and heat thoroughly. Combine chicken mixture with hot cooked pasta in pasta pot; toss. Stir in cilantro and reserved pasta water, if needed.

It took me roughly 30 minutes from start to table. My husband has asked if we can make it again. I think that means it was a success.

  1. Looks delicious. Sounds simple. I’d switch out the broth to chicken so I can eat it, but it sounds perfect otherwise.

    I’m even cooking with ginger these days … who AM I?

    1. You are a shadow of your former self. šŸ˜‰ I might try it with chicken broth (since that’s what I normally have on hand.) I don’t know how much that would change the flavor, but it might be worth it!

  2. Your Noodle Bowl looks delicious. I like to bulk up on the veggies, too. I hopped over from I’m an Organizing Junkie. Have a great day!

  3. Finding a meal that all of my children will eat is a challenge. These noodles would be a hit with my entire family. And I’d love knowing they had some veggies!

  4. Wow, your meal plan looks and sounds delicious! I am loving that you have such unique dishes planned. I tend to stick with the same old boring stuff.

  6. Minus the soy sauce which makes me blow up like a balloon I would truly enjoy this dish. I do like Asian foods and spices although they don’t always like me.

  7. that looks great. i was looking at emails the other day and will have to go back and look again. very cool!
