As we are busy doing absolutely nothing, I have made the best of it in the kitchen. I have put on my chef's hat and done some serious damage in the kitchen. It's easy when you have 4 hours to prepare dinner and a month to make an exact meal plan. I know we are all bored with making the same 4 dishes we have been making since college and ready to spice up our cooking.
So, I have the perfect easy solution for the "my food is starting to taste the same" rut that I'm sure you're currently in. Did someone say Asian Noodles?!
I had a big appetite this weekend and I ate everything in sight so naturally when Blake said he wanted Asian food, I looked around my pantry and threw together a spicy, garlicky noodle creation. Please note that this recipe is merely a guideline and that these are the amounts we put together for two people. Feel free to add/remove anything! Just plain chicken and noodles would still be amazing.
What I used:
Wide egg noodles (however much you like)
3 cloves of garlic (minced)
One small slice of onion (I did it for the flavor)
3 Tbsp olive oil
2 cups of rotisserie chicken (however much you like)
4 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp sesame oil
Chopped green onion
Salt + pepper
Step 1: Bowl Noodles as package directs.
Step 2: Sauté the onions and 2 cloves of garlic in the olive oil for about 3-4 min. (I used a Wok)
* If you salt + pepper your food as it cooks (opposed to after), you'll taste the flavors more.
Step 3: Add in chicken to the olive oil/garlic mixture and put stove on low (the chicken is already cooked we just want to heat it up).
Step 4: In a small bowl, mix the soy sauce, sesame oil and the last clove of garlic.
Step 5: Drain noodles and add to chicken mixture, then top with soy sauce (as much or little as you think your noodles need).
Step 6: Top with the chopped green onion!
