I love cooking noodles, especially on busy days. All in one pot and loaded with vegetables. I was browsing Youtube for a noodle recipe when I came across Yakisoba, a Japanese stir-fried noodle recipe by  Nami from Just one cookbook.
I love Nami's blog and its one of the places I learned about Japanese cuisine and also realized Japanese cuisine isn't just sushi but has delicious simple stir-fries and other simple Japanese recipes.

I used regular 2-minute noodle packets instead of yakisoba noodles. Egg noodles will be fine.
I didn't have Worcestershire sauce so I ditched it as well. Ok, so my yakisoba isn't exactly traditional as I have added chilli and chili sauce.

Yield: 4


Prep time: 15 mins  Cook time: 10 mins  total time: 25 mins


  • 3 packets Maggie or Mamee 2 minute noodles
  • 1/4 white cabbage, finely shredded
  • 1 small carrot, cut into thin strips
  • A few broccoli florets
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 2-3 green chillies, cut in half, lengthwise
  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • Sauce
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1tsp dark soy sauce
  • 1 tsp tomato ketchup or sauce
  • 1 tsp chilli sauce (optional)
  • 4 tsp oyster sauce
  • pinch sugar
  • pinch ground black pepper
  • 4 tbsp  water


  1. Make the sauce by mixing all the sauce ingredients together and set aside.
  2. Slice the chicken breast into thin slices and then into strips. Season with a little salt and pepper. 
  3. Soak the noodles in hot water 2 minutes, drain and rinse in cold water to stop it from overcooking. Set aside
  4. Prepare all the vegetables and set aside.
  5. Heat a wok or large frying pan with about 4 tbsp oil. 
  6. Add the chicken and stir fry till the chicken is cooked through.
  7. Add the onions, broccoli, cabbage, chillies, and carrot and stir fry for a minute.
  8. Stir in the noodles and toss in the vegetables.
  9. Finally, add the sauce and toss the mixture well into the cover everything with the sauce. Stir fry for a minute and then switch off and serve immediately.
