1/4 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon cornstarch
2 teaspoons ground ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced or put through a press

DIRECTIONS

  1. Cook the noodles according to the package directions until just tender. Drain out the water. Rinse the noodles with cold water, drain them well, and then set them aside.
  2. In a small bowl, mirin, chicken broth, soy sauce, sesame oil, ground ginger, garlic, sriracha and cornstarch. Then set the sauce aside.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil in a large wok or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Stir-fry the onion & carrots 5 to 7 minutes, or until charred and caramelized. Add the broccoli and stir-fry until tender. Remove vegetables to bowl.  Now add the zucchini & squash and stir-fry the for 3-4 minutes, or until tender crispy, then transfer to bowl with rest of veggies.
  4. Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in the pan. Add chicken and stir-fry it until it’s no longer pink, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the cooked noodles, vegetables, and sauce to the pan. Turn the heat down to medium. Using tongs, lightly toss the mixture until heated through, about 3 minutes.
