How to Make Poultry Essentials: Chicken with Asian Noodles


  2. Yakisoba, literally "fried buckwheat", is a Japanese noodle made from wheat flour, and are typically flavored with a condiment like oyster sauce. If you cannot find them, just pick up a pack or two of dried ramen noodles.

    FYI: Yakisoba and ramen noodles usually come with a packet of spices to add to the cooking noodles… Do not use it.
  3. It is important that you use chicken stock, not broth. If you use broth, the dish will taste too salty. If all you have is broth, then use a low-sodium version of tamari sauce.
  4. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  5. Add the butter and oil to a sauté pan over medium-low heat.
  6. Pat the chicken breasts dry, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  7. When the butter melts, give the pan a swirl to mix the butter and oil, and then add the chicken breasts.
  8. Cover, and allow to slowly cook for about 10 - 12 minutes, and then flip, recover, and cook for another 10 - 12 minutes.
  9. Remove the chicken, cover, and reserve.
  10. Chef’s Note: Leave the oil, butter and chicken juices in the pan
  11. Add the chicken stock, tamari (or liquid aminos), and honey to the sauté pan, and raise the heat to medium.
  12. As soon as the liquid begins to simmer, add the yakisoba noodles.
  13. Stir them until they break apart, about 1 minute.
  14. Nest the chicken in the noodles.
  15. Cover and allow to simmer until the liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes.
  17. Divide the noodles between two bowls, then slice and add the chicken on top. Sprinkle with some sesame seeds, and sliced green onion, if desired. Enjoy.
  18. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
