Notes

Cooking tips for stir fried udon noodles with chicken:

  • I like to use chicken thigh rather than chicken breast because  it has better texture when you stir fried them.
  • The best to marinated the chicken for 20-30 minutes before cooking.
  • Then, add a pinch of salt when stir fried cabbage and carrot.
  • Most of udon that I can purchase in the states are frozen one. So, if you have frozen udon noodles. I suggest to defrost it before stir fried.
  • After put the udon noodles into the pan add some water and cover with the lid for a few minutes. Next, add the dark soy sauce and use chopsticks to mix and separate the noodles. I prefer to use chopsticks to stir fried the noodles so they don’t break so easily.
