Spicy Cajun Noodles with Chicken

Ingredients

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts cubed
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1 tbsp Frank’s red hot sauce
  • 1 tbsp soya sauce
  • 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tsp cajun spice
  • 1-2 cups fresh chopped veggies of your choice (suggestions: carrots, celery, peppers, water-chestnuts, snap peas, broccoli, bean sprouts, mushrooms, mini corn cobs etc)
  • 1 tsp corn starch dissolved in small amount of cold water or broth (a shot glass works well)
  • cooked chow mein noodles

Preparation

Heat oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Sauté garlic and onion. Add chicken and cajun spice and cook for 3 minutes.  Add veggies and cook until chicken is no longer pink.

Add chicken broth, Franks, and soya sauce. Simmer covered for 5 minutes. Add corn starch mixture and stir immediately!!! Sauce will thicken upon stirring.

Toss in cooked chow mien noodles and fry for a minute or two (noodles will absorb sauce for more flavour) OR just serve mixture in a bowl over cooked chow mien noodles.

For spicier sauce, add more cajun spice and franks. All measurements are approximate (I tend to be more generous with ingredients than what I listed above)

*Pork, beef or shrimp can be substituted for chicken. Also try beef or vegetable broth. Beer can also be substituted for chicken broth.
