I LOVE me some ramen noodles, but I cannot stand the salty flavor packets they put into them to eat as a meal. Don’t get me wrong, like most, I had plenty of them in college. Plus, they can be nice when you are wanting a hot, late night snack, but as a hearty meal they have never filled me up. This Chicken Yakisoba recipe is quite the opposite. It is filled with fresh chicken, lots of veggies, and a homemade sauce that melds everything together perfectly.

How to Make Chicken Yakisoba

Assemble your ingredients. For exact amounts see the recipe card below.

Put together the sauce for the dish because the cooking process will go by quickly. In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, sriracha, and sugar.

Next, boil a pot of water for the noodles.

Then, in your Wok, or a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil. Once hot, add in the ginger and sauté for about a minute.

Next, add in the chicken and cook until it is no longer pink, about 3-5 minutes.

Next, add in the cabbage and cook for another 2 minutes, until it has slightly wilted.

Recipe Variations for Chicken Yakisoba

Vegetarian/Vegan:

To make this recipe Vegetarian or Vegan friendly simply don’t add in the chicken and you are all set!

Protein:

I used chicken for this recipe but it would work with almost any protein! Whether that is beef, or shrimp, or even some crispy tofu if you are vegetarian or vegan!

Gluten Free:

If you substitute out the soy sauce for gluten free soy sauce then you are good to go!

Add some Spice:

This recipe calls for 1 Tablespoon of Sriracha; however, if you are a lover of all things spicy feel free to add in more to your desired taste.
