I first made this dinner back in 2011 and since then it has become one of my go-to dinner recipes. It’s quick, it’s healthy and it’s easy to customize with whatever I have on hand. I usually use shrimp because they cook so quickly, but I’ve also made it with fresh chicken, or as a way to use up leftover chicken or pork.
You can use whatever veggies you have on hand. I usually use a mix of fresh and frozen and my standard choices are onions, red pepper and broccoli but I’ve also used corn, green beans, carrots, etc.
I’ve also made this with zoodles instead of soba noodles! (Check out my 6 Quick and Easy Zoodles Recipes).
Here’s the recipe…and I use that term loosely because I never measure when making this. It’s very forgiving 🙂Print
