Teriyaki Chicken Noodle Bowls – an easy homemade teriyaki sauce with tender pieces of chicken and noodles for a delicious and easy dinner!
In case you haven’t noticed, I have a thing for Asian style noodle bowls lately. And apparently you like them too, because they are quickly becoming some of the most popular recipes here on the blog. Garlic Beef Noodles Bowls started it all out, and still remains one of our favorites. Just a few simple ingredients, and so good.
I shared a video for the Chow Mein Noodles with Chicken on Facebook, and people went crazy with their opinions. I get that not everyone wants to use ramen noodles, but boy did I hear about it. Like prison food, will make you puke, people swearing at me and calling me names. So if ramen isn’t your thing (minus the seasoning packet, you make your own sauce) still try the recipe, just use your favorite pasta!
And don’t for get Asian Noodles Bowls with Pork. We love pork tenderloin in our house, so this is one of our favorites. We have been making five spice pork lo mein for probably 10 years, and now we have another asian pork dish to make!
Today these teriyaki chicken noodles bowls were taken from the Pineapple Chicken Teriyaki I shared last week. This version doesn’t have pineapple, and is served tossed with noodles. The pasta gets coated and is so good. You could definitely add pineapple or veggies to bulk this up, but my family loves it just like this. I mean who doesn’t love teriyaki chicken!
This teriyaki chicken recipe is super easy to make. You just need a handful of ingredients to make the homemade teriyaki sauce, then just cook the chicken, cook the pasta, and throw it all together! And because it is served all mixed together with noodles, it gets a special name; teriyaki chicken bowls. Because having “bowls” in the name somehow makes food more fun!
I even taught my son how to make teriyaki chicken. I like to mix the sauce in a liquid measuring cup, so you can just pour it into the pot when you are ready. The chicken gets coated with cornstarch to help it get just a little crispy, and it also keeps it super tender. Mix the sauce while the meat and pasta cook. Could not get any easier!
The leftovers for this teriyaki chicken recipe are great the next day for lunch. It isn’t quite as saucy, because the noodles soak up some of the sauce in the fridge. But it is still delicious, and definitely worth making sure you make extra for!
So when you are planning your menu this week, add these teriyaki chicken bowls to your list. It comes together very quickly, and is picky eater approved! Feel free to add veggies to the mix or use whatever pasta you have on hand.
