Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. While noodles cook, tear chicken into chunks.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
