Szechuan Chicken and Noodles

Szechuan Chicken is a simple, spicy twist to chicken stir-fry. It is full of vegetables, protein and amazing Asian-inspired flavor. If you are looking for a Chinese take-out recipe to make at home, try this!

I have been on a Chinese food kick lately (my husband finally had to ask me to start making something else) and this meal is definitely at the top of my Chinese food favorites!

I love that it’s loaded with vegetables and you can use whole wheat noodles like I did to make it a little bit healthier.

 

Chinese take-out you can make right at home

Going out to dinner, but have you ever tried staying in and making your own? Not only will it save you money, but it is so much healthier.

This is the perfect make-at-home take out dish that your family will love.

This Asian inspired meal is extremely high in calories at most Chinese restaurants, but making it from home allows you to put ingredients in that are good for you and have better nutritional value.

make it your own

If you have picky eaters, don’t panic. This recipe was made for picky eaters. I love how flexible this recipe is, because you can add or switch out any ingredients you need to.

If you are looking to add a few more vegetables, go for it! This is a stir fry so anything goes.

We love adding zucchini, water chestnuts, green beans, carrots, celery, peppers, etc. The possibilities are endless. If you have vegetables lying around, throw them in.

If you aren’t much of a noodle person, no stress. Rice would also go perfect with this Szechuan Chicken dish.

You could even make our delicious Fried Rice to go with this recipe.

make it a freezer meal/Slow Cooker Meal

This recipe could easily be made into a freezer meal.

Throw your raw chicken breast pieces, peppers, onion, broccoli, garlic and paprika into a gallon-sized resealable freezer bag. Pour in the sauce, zip up the bag, and shake until it’s fully combined.

Place in the freezer until ready to serve. We recommend using the freezer meal before 3 months of putting it into the freezer.

When you are ready to use it, place contents into a slow cooker and cook on low for 4-5 hours. Make your noodles or rice according to package directions.

Because the sauce and juices will cook into the chicken, you may want to have a little extra sauce on hand to pour over the finished product.

Serve warm and enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 3/4 cups Yoshida's Original Gourmet Sauce*
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 green bell peppers, diced (seeds and ribs removed)
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 cups broccoli florets, steamed
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon paprika 
  • 1 box (13.25 oz) whole wheat linguine noodles (you don't have to use whole wheat)

Instructions

  1. Cook the linguine noodles according to the directions on the package.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add the chicken and cook until chicken turns white and is no longer pink on the inside (takes about 8-10 minutes). Remove the chicken onto a plate.
  3. In the same skillet, add olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and bell pepper and saute until soft (about 8 minutes). Once the vegetables are done, add the cooked chicken back to the skillet.
  4. Add in the sauce, minced garlic and paprika. Stir well. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue to cook for 5-8 more minutes, or until marinade is thoroughly heated and slightly thickened. Add in the cooked broccoli last.
  5. When linguine is done cooking drain the water and then add noodles into the chicken/sauce mixture. Stir to combine and serve.

Notes

*I usually buy this sauce at Costco or Sam's Club. You can get a huge bottle for $6-7. I use it all the time for simple marinaded chicken and it tastes amazing. If you can't find this sauce, you could substitute your favorite Chinese-flavored or teriyaki sauce.
