Chicken and Vegetable Stir-Fry with Pasta

A one-skillet meal for any night of the week.

Noodle and Chicken Stir Fry

This stir-fry is made with boneless skinless chicken breast that’s marinated in a quick and easy homemade sauce.

The marinade has an Asian taste which adds wonderful flavor to the entire dish.

I especially like the whole wheat spaghetti pasta in this stir-fry because it adds a light, yet hearty texture to the dish. 

Every stir-fry needs a little crunch to it and this one has just that…with lightly cooked Chinese pea pods and whole cashews.

The combination of flavors is really good…there’s a little spice with the hot peppers, a savory taste from garlic, the freshness of cilantro and the delicious marinade with a soy sauce base.

Serve this one-skillet meat for a light dinner any night of the week.

Here’s how to make it.

For the Marinade:

Chopped Garlic on Board

In a medium size bowl, add soy sauce, sesame oil, fish sauce and garlic.

Cut Jalapeno Pepper on board

Dice the Serrano pepper (if you prefer less heat, remove the seeds).

Cut raw chicken on plate

Cut the chicken into thin slices.

Raw cut chicken in marinade

Cut Chinese Pea Pods on board

Cut the tips off of each end of the Chinese pea pods.

Cut vegetables on cutting board

Slice the carrots with a diagonal cut (about ½ inch thick).

Cut the green onions into large pieces making about 5 or 6 cuts on each green onion (include the green tops as well).

Cut the red bell pepper into very thin strips.

Set aside the vegetables for just a moment while cooking the pasta.

Boil Water in Pot

For the Pasta – To a medium size saucepan, add water and salt.

Bring the water to a boil and add the pasta.  Stir.

Let cook while stirring occasionally until the pasta is al dente (according to package instructions).

Then drain the pasta (don’t rinse).

Don’t rinse the pasta after cooking it. When pasta is rinsed, the starch is removed. The starch on pasta helps to hold and absorb the sauce so it’s important to keep the starch on the pasta.

Olive Oil in Pan

Cooking the Vegetables – While the pasta is cooking, heat a large skillet on medium heat and add olive oil.

Cook Vegetables in Pan

Add the carrots, green onions, and red bell pepper to the skillet and stir.

Cook Chicken in Pan

Next, add the chicken and all of the marinade to the skillet with the vegetables.

Stir the vegetables and chicken together.
