Teriyaki sauce is probably one of my favourite sauces to use for stir fry noodles and baked salmon. I love how quick and easy it is to make and it does not involve millions of ingredients!
I used to go the easy way and order stir fry noodle with chicken from my local Chinese takeaway until one day I decide to give it a go – how difficult it can be? There is a lot of teriyaki sauce variation on the internet but the key ingredients are always the same – soy sauce, mirin, sugar, and ginger. I usually have all of them in my cupboards apart from mirin, so don’t worry, we can skip that one! Although teriyaki is not usually thick I like to add a sprinkle of cornstarch to make it a bit more like a glaze type of sauce (it is to die for with salmon cooked on the pan!).
Now, let’s not wait any longer – here is my quick and easy recipe for teriyaki chicken stir fry (I cheated a bit with veggies, sorry! I bought a mix of frozen stir fry veggies).
- 100 g medium egg noodles
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 2 chicken breasts, cubed
- 150 g mixed of frozen stir fry vegetables
- 1 tbsp chopped red chili
- 2 tbsp spring onions, finely chopped
- 6 tbsp soy sauce
- 3 tbsp water
- 3 tbsp brown sugar
- ½ tbsp rice wine vinegar
- 1 tsp chopped garlic
- ½ tsp ginger paste
- 1 tbsp corn flour
- Bring a pan of water to the boil and add noodles to the pan. Lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring from time to time. Once cooked, drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
- In a stir fry pan (or any deep frying pan) melt a coconut oil, add chicken breast and stir-fry for 5 minutes or until cooked through. Add frozen veggies and cook for another 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, mix together the red chili, spring onions, soy sauce, water, brown sugar, rice wine vinegar, chopped garlic, and ginger paste. Add sifted corn flour and mix well until all ingredients are well combined.
- Add cooked noodles to chicken and veggies, mix well then pour in teriyaki sauce and lightly toss everything for another 2-3 minutes or until the sauce thickens and forms a nice glaze on noodles.
