Stir-fried Yaki Udon with Shredded Chicken, Shitake Mushrooms and Bangkok Greens

Japanese udon noodles are usually seen served in bowls of steaming hot broth. Whether it’s a miso or dashi stock, everyone loves a steaming bowl of soup noodles when the it gets chilly outside. When spring time comes, it’s nice to have a savoury, dry dish for a quick lunch – hence, I decided to make Stir-fried Yaki Udon with Shredded Chicken, Shitake Mushrooms and Bangkok Greens.
Topped with toasted white sesame seeds, this is a fuss-free meal to whip up in just 20 minutes.
The best thing is, you may choose to fry a big batch of noodles and consume them over the next couple days. Just remember to leave them out to cool first before placing in the fridge.
Put the noodles in a bowl and use clingwrap as a bowl-lid. Clingwrap helps to seal in moisture and keeps food clean and fresh.

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Japanese
Servings: 2 people
Ingredients
  • 2 servings udon noodles
  • 4 shitake mushrooms sliced
  • 1/2 cup bangkok greens President Choice's mixture of snap peas, long beans, carrots, peppers
  • 1/4 cup cooked shredded chicken i used leftover rotisserie chicken
  • 1/2 tbsp canola or vegetable oil
  • 4 tbsp teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp white sesame seeds toasted
Instructions
  1. In a pot of salted boiling water, add udon noodles. Allow to cook for about 5 minutes, then remove from stove and rinse noodles under cold running water. This will stop the noodles from cooking further.

  2. Pour 1/2 tbsp of oil into a medium-heated large frying pan. When the oil heats up, add shitake mushrooms. Stir-fry for about 30 seconds or until mushrooms give off a distinct aroma.


  3. In the same pan, add bangkok greens. Fry together with mushrooms, until vegetables are soft. Then, throw in the cooked chicken and combine all ingredients together. Add 1 teaspoon salt and continue to stir-fry for about 30 seconds.

  4. When all the ingredients are combined well (and the chicken is heated up), this is the perfect time to add your cooked noodles into the pan. It doesn't matter if there is some moisture (from the water that dripped off the noodles), as it will dry up as you fry the noodles later. Add the noodles.

  5. Once the noodles are in the pan, pour 4 tablespoons of teriyaki sauce over the noodles. Toss to combine the noodles and other ingredients for about 5-10 seconds.

  6. Add 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil and continue to toss the noodles for the last 5-10 seconds. Taste the sauce. If it is not salty enough, add more salt. Turn off the heat and serve. Garnish with freshly toasted white sesame seeds.
