Happy Tuesday! Who’s ready to try a new recipe this week? I don’t know about you, but when it comes to recipes, they need to be simple and quick. Also, only one pot makes it even better!
Hubby stumbled across this recipe while browsing Facebook. After just over 11 years of marriage, I’ve discovered just how picky of an eater he truly is. Though not in your typical 3-year old fashion, rather the kind of picky in that he’s very particular in the kinds of foods we make. He wants to explore new foods, especially ones that help his palate evolve. The best part – most times he’s even willing to cook these new recipes after a long day at work.
Looking over the recipe there weren’t any crazy unrecognizable ingredients and only four simple steps to complete. The only items we needed to buy were the fresh chicken breasts and fresh produce. We couldn’t find matchstick carrots so I slivered our baby carrots. Also, rather than using the type of spaghetti noodles the recipe called for, we used thin spaghetti we had on hand.
Like I said, hubby was the one who cooked this meal for us. He didn’t seem to have any issues when cooking this and it really didn’t take much time to prepare. It smelled delicious each time I walked into the kitchen while he was cooking.
This meal turned out amazing! Our dish surprisingly resembled the actual recipe photo as most recipes I make do not. The flavor was quite tasteful. I will be honest, the word teriyaki in the recipe title scared me – I typically don’t like teriyaki flavoring. Hubby says there was too much honey, where as I didn’t even taste the honey. Our only complaint is that the noodles came out slightly undercooked, making them slightly crunchy. Next time, we want to use the pronto noodles that the original recipe asks for or increase the amount of liquid.
Guys, my extremely picky kids LOVED this. The bigger kids couldn’t get enough of the noodles. Maisyn loved the chicken. That girl doesn’t normally eat chicken. One Pot Teriyaki Chicken and Noodles will definitely be making it’s way into our monthly rotation. I’d highly suggest giving it a try, especially if you’re a fan of Asian cuisine.
