A great one dish meal.
- 1 lb chicken tenders
- 1 lb broccoli
- 1 lb dried udon noodles (can use whole wheat spaghetti)
- 1⁄2 cup premium oyster sauce
- 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons chinese chile garlic paste (to taste)
- 1⁄2 cup chopped scallion
- 2 teaspoons roasted sesame seeds
- Cook chicken in a 6-quart pot of boiling unsalted water, covered, until just cooked through, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl with a slotted spoon.
- Add broccoli to boiling water and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer with slotted spoon to a colander to drain, then transfer to another bowl. Return water to a boil and cook noodles until tender (check often; cooking time on package may not be accurate). Reserve 1 cup cooking water, then drain noodles in colander and rinse under hot water.
- While noodles cook, tear chicken into chunks.
- Add oyster and hoisin sauces, sesame oil, chile garlic paste, half of scallions, and 1/3 cup cooking water to chicken and stir to combine.
- Divide noodles, broccoli, and chicken mixture among 4 bowls and sprinkle with sesame seeds and remaining scallions. Serve immediately, stirring just before eating. If noodles become dry, moisten with some of cooking water.
My family found this a wee bit short on flavor and once we added some soy sauce it was great. I found it was easier to saute the chicken and add the other items to the pan. There was enough for 6 servings as stated. Prepared as a participant in the Photo Forum event entitled "Cooking with an Asian Accent, March 2009.
Yum, wonderful Asian food right in your own home! I followed this exactly except I sauteed' my chicken tenders and broccoli right there in the pan. I am in love with this easy, wonderfully Asian spiced meal! I love the chili spice and added extra, but I love hot spices. I can't say enough about this wonderful, filling meal - that will keep you out of the local Asian carry-out. Thanks for posting!
We loved this! A great easy low fat meal which we enjoyed. I also think this is very adaptable to other veggies. My amounts were a bit different than the ones listed, but worked out perfectly for us! The only real change I made was only using one teaspoon of chili paste. Thanks for sharing this keeper!
