Japanese Spaghetti

11 Nov

I am posting this one as a memo, more of a reminder so that I don’t forget and will always know where to look for it.  My 11 year old daughter checked out a cook book from school, she said their were a lot of interesting recipes inside.  This is one she keeps on bringing up so I am going to let her help me make it one night.  Here it is:

Japanese Spaghetti

  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • Soy sauce
  • Garlic, salt, pepper, ginger to taste
  • 4 pkgs. Ramen Noodles, oriental flavored
  • 2 carrots, thinly sliced
  • 3 green onions sliced
  • 1 c. sliced mushrooms
  • 1 c. chopped bok choy

Stir-fry chicken strips in 2 Tbsp. hot  oil until done.  Add vegetables; stir-fry until crisp.  In separate pan, fix noodles as directed.  When noodles are done, add to stir fry.  Add soy sauce and other seasonings to taste.  Do not over cook.  You may add more vegetables.  Serves 5.

 
Ok, now I have not made this yet, it sounds a bit salty.  I think when I prepare the noodles I may use  just two of the seasoning packets, because once you use the soy sauce, and salt the ingredients call for, that is a lot of sodium.  Since becoming a Beachbody Coach, I have been trying to eat healthier myself and trying to get my kids to eat more fresh fruit and veggies, which can be a challenge.  I just don’t think kids or us adults need that much salt.  Now, I am hoping they like it.  It sounds a lot like the chow mein noodles you get at any Chinese restaurant.
