Recipes: Chinese Yakisoba Stir Fry

Hi everyone! I thought I'd share another recipe I've been loving recently. I've been trying to eat a lot of protein and vegetables at the moment but it's sometimes difficult to eat tasty food that's also good for you but this is one of my go-to recipes that delivers on nutrition and flavour. I hope you enjoy :)

Ingredients (for 4 servings):

2 tablespoons of canola oil
1 tablespoon of sesame oil
2 skinless chicken breast fillets, cut into chunks
2 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons of Asian-style chilli paste (you can leave this out if you don't like spicy food)
Soy sauce to taste
Half a medium head of cabbage
1 onion
2 carrots, cut into matchsticks
2 pounds of cooked yakisoba noodles
Pickled ginger to taste


Heat 2 tablespoons of canola oil and 1 tablespoon of sesame oil in a large skillet or frying pan over medium to high heat. Put the chicken and chopped garlic into the pan and fry for about a minute. Stir in the chilli paste and continue to cook for a further 3 to 4 minutes, or until the chicken has browned. Add the soy sauce and simmer for 2 minutes. Finally, set aside the chicken mixture into a bowl. In the hot pan, stir in the chopped cabbage, onion and carrots until the cabbage has wilted and reduced in volume. Put the chicken mixture back into the pan with the cabbage, add the noodles and cook until the noodles are tender and the chicken is completely cooked. Serve immedietly and garnish with the pickled ginger.

Let me know if you try out this recipe and what you think :)
