Chicken Noodle Stir-Fry Ingredients:

  • 7 ounces rice noodles
  • 3 tablespoons peanut oil (or olive oil), divided
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, thinly-sliced
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 cups broccoli florets, chopped into bite-sized pieces (about 1 small head of broccoli)
  • 2/3 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 red bell pepper, cored and thinly-sliced
  • 8 ounces baby bella* mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup roughly-chopped collard greens**, tough stems removed
  • 1 batch stir-fry sauce (see below)
  • toppings: thinly-sliced green onions, toasted sesame seeds

Stir-Fry Sauce Ingredients:


To Make The Chicken Noodle Stir-Fry:

  1. Cook noodles according to package instructions.  Drain and set aside.
  2. In a large saute pan, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat.  Add chicken and season evenly with a generous pinch of salt and pepper.  Cook the chicken, stirring and flipping occasionally, for until it is just cooked through and no longer pink on the inside (about 3-5 minutes).  Transfer chicken with a slotted spoon to a separate plate, and set aside.
  3. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons oil to the saute pan, and increase heat to high.  Add broccoli, carrots, bell pepper and mushrooms, and saute for 5 minutes, or until they reach your desired level of softness.
  4. Add in the collard greens, sauce, cooked chicken, noodles, and immediately toss to combine.  Continue cooking for 2 minutes, stirring frequently, until the greens have wilted a bit.
  5. Remove from heat and serve immediately, garnished with your desired toppings.

To Make The Stir-Fry Sauce:

  1. Whisk all ingredients together until combined.  Then whisk in as much chili garlic sauce as you’d like.


*You could really use just about any mushrooms here — baby bella, white button, shiitakes, or a combination!

**Feel free to sub in whatever greens you have on hand here — fresh spinach, kale, chard, or mustard greens.
