I thought I'd try a little something new on this here blog. I try to mix up what we eat every week so we don't end up eating the same ol' crap every week. I decided I thought I'd share with you guys a recipe or two.

Introducing Friday's Recipe of the Week

Stir-Fried Chicken And Rice Noodles

Prep:25 mins Cook: 20 mins

2-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup white wine or reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
3/4 teaspoon chili powder
3 ounces uncooked Asian rice noodles
4 teaspoons canola oil, divided
3 cups fresh broccoli florets
2/3 cup chopped green onions
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons minced fresh gingerroot
1/4 cup unsalted dry roasted peanuts

1) In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch, soy sauce, wine or broth and sesame oil until smooth. Pour 1/4 cup marinade into a large resalable plastic bag; add the chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 20 minutes.

2) Add the broth, sugar, Worcestershire sauce and chili powder to remaining marinade; set aside.

3) Cook the rice noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, drain and discard the marinade from chicken. In a large nonstick skillet or wok, stir-fry chicken in 2 teaspoons canola oil until juices run clear; remove and keep warm.

4) Stir-fry broccoli in remaining canola oil for 5 minutes. Add the onion, garlic and ginger; stir-fry 3-5 minutes longer or until broccoli is tender. Return chicken to the pan.

5) Stir reserved broth mixture and stir into pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Drain noodles; toss with chicken mixture. Garnish with pasnuts.

*** I used egg noodles instead of rice noodles, mainly because I forgot to grab some rice noodles at the store. And we omitted the peanuts because, well, I just don't like peanuts unless they are honey roasted and in a bowl by themselves. All was good even with the little changes we made.
