chicken and brussels sprout udon noodle skillet


So... back from Spring Break.... now on to packing.  Talk about going from one extreme to another!:)  We had our first appraisal on the house we are buying and it came back low.  Sound familiar?  So, since she won't take the appraisal amount for the purchase we are switching mortgage companies and getting another appraisal.  Her realtor is paying for it, guess she is that sure of herself, and away we go.  More waiting...

While we are waiting... let's eat!  Here is an Asian noodle dishing using one of my favorite spring veggies.  This recipe uses chicken but tempeh would also be terrific or even tofu, if you are a vegetarian.

Servings 4-6
Total Time 30 minutes

  • 1 pound udon noodles
  • 2 clove garlic, minced
  • 6 tablespoons Bragg's Liquid Aminos or soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoon sriracha
  • 2 pounds organic skinless, boneless chicken breast, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoon sesame oil 
  • 2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and quartered
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (optional)


1.   In a large pot of boiling water, cook the noodles according to package directions.  Rinse under cold water, drain, and return to the pot.

2.  Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the garlic, Bragg's, rice vinegar, maple syrup, and sriracha.  Set aside.

3.  In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, add the oil.  When hot add the chicken and cook for 5-6 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through.  Remove the chicken from the skillet and add to the noodles in the large pot.

4.  Add the sprouts to the skillet and cook for about 5 minutes, or until they're just beginning to brown.  Whisk the flour into the sauce, and then pour over the sprouts.  Allow the sauce to thicken for about a minute and then pour the sprouts and sauce over the noodles.  Toss until well combined.

5.  Top with sesame seeds and enjoy!!!
