Healthy Teriyaki Chicken with vegetables and noodles

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

Looking for an easy chicken recipe? This Healthy Teriyaki Chicken with vegetables and noodles is a great weeknight stir fry dinner for busy families.

Do you find it hard to put a healthy dinner on the table during the week? When you’re busy juggling work, kids and everything else, some nights it just feels impossible!

I love this Healthy Teriyaki Chicken with Vegetables and Noodles recipe. It’s honestly so fast and easy to make and everybody likes it (winning!) so it often ends up on my weekly meal plan.

A lot of stirfrys are served with rice, but I use noodles because you don’t have to wait for the rice to cook, so it’s a big time saver. When my kids were young they always preferred noodles because they’re just more fun to eat, right?

What vegetables can you use?

I used some veggie staples – onion, capsicum, broccoli and carrot – but you can use whatever you like or have on hand in the fridge. Some alternative ideas are snow peas, red cabbage, yellow or green capsicum, sugar snap peas, corn or water chestnuts – whatever takes your fancy!

Speedy to make

This recipe is perfect for one of those dashes to the shops after work, where you just want a handful of items to throw dinner together. It’s also pretty healthy with a good mix of veggies and lean protein. 

Budget-friendly

Aside from this recipe being fast, it’s also really cost effective when you’re feeding a family. The ingredients are quite simple too – it just uses just one readymade sauce, rather than making a sauce from scratch.

Get the kids to make it

If your kids are old enough to cook, this is a great option for them because it’s quick and easy. I’ve made it even easier for them by speaking their language – they can watch it being made here on Tik Tok! So just leave the ingredients on the bench and let them make you dinner.

Dietary options

If you’re not keen on hokkien noodles, there are lots of alternatives such as egg, ramen, soba or udon noodles.

Gluten-free

Swap the noodles for a gluten-free noodles. Easy fixed!

Vegetarian / Vegan

Replace the chicken with pan-fried tofu (use firm tofu, tear into pieces as it gives a meat-like texture, coat in cornflour to make it crispier). Swap the noodles for soba noodles.
