Chicken Yakitori with Pan-Fried Miki Noodles and Green Beans

Chicken Yakatori

Yakitori is a favourite late-night street food in Japan, where you'll find alleys lined with charcoal grills selling skewers by the hundreds. We're marinating our chicken yakitori in a sweet garlic soy sauce and serving them atop chewy pan-fried noodles and roasted green beans.

Recipe compliments of:



Chicken Tenders 2 pkg (680 g)
Yakisoba Noodles 2 pkg (360 g)
Green Beans trimmed 2 pkg (340 g)
Red Onion, sliced 2 pkg (113 g)
Garlic 2pkg (20 g)
Stir-Fry Sauce 1 pkg (6 tbsp)
Wooden Skewers 6
Olive or Canola Oil


Shallow Dish,
2 Baking Sheets,
Medium Bowl,
Large Pan,
Measuring Cups


1. Preheat the oven to 450°F (to bake the chicken and green beans). Start prepping when the oven comes up to temperature!

2. Prep: Wash and dry all produce. Soak the skewers in a shallow dish filled with hot water. Mince or grate the garlic. Cut the chicken into 1/2-inch pieces. Toss the green beans with a drizzle of oil on a baking sheet.

3. Prep and bake the skewers: In a medium bowl, combine the chicken, garlic and stir-fry sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Thread the chicken onto the skewers (keep the marinade in the bowl – we'll use it to make a sauce later) and place them on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake in the centre of the oven, turning the skewers over halfway through cooking, until golden-brown, 10-12 min. Roast the green beans in the centre of the oven, alongside the chicken, until golden-brown, 10-12 min.

4. Cook the yakisoba: Meanwhile, heat a large pan over medium- high heat. Add a drizzle of oil, then the red onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden-brown, 7-8 min. Add the reserved marinade and 1/4 cup water. Bring to a boil, then add the noodles. Cook, stirring occasionally until warmed through, 1-2 min.

5. Finish and serve: Stir the green beans into the noodles. Divide the noodles between plates and top with the chicken skewers.

NUTRITION FACT: Green beans are a good source of Vitamin K. This nutrient is very important for blood health and helps to speed up healing from cuts and wounds.
