yummy gochujang noodles

a recipe by

This is a family favorite, and having a family of 7(now 9) its hard to find something that we all can agree on. This is for sure one of these. This is packed full of flavor and protein. I do try and use low sodium where I can. Another thing I do is use brown rice and millet ramen if I can find it. This is also a beautiful dish to present.

How To Make yummy gochujang noodles

  • 1
    Whisk the sauce ingredients (except the extra broth) in a small bowl or shake together in a jar. It should form a thick sauce.
  • 2
    Cook the chicken in a large skillet over medium high heat. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  • 3
    Boil the noodles for just a few minutes to soften. Drain and set aside.
  • 4
    When the chicken is done, add spinach, cooked noodles, and sauce to the pan, keeping it over medium high heat. Toss to combine; heat until the spinach is wilted. Add extra water or broth to thin the sauce, a little at a time, to get the sauciness that you like (I usually add about 1 1/2 cups total).
  • 5
    Serve topped with fresh herbs, scallions, chili oil, sesame seeds, and whatever else you like.
