Korean Style Stir Fried Udon Noodles with Chicken and Veggies

Easy and delicious Korean style stir fried udon noodles with chicken and vegetables.

From time to time I crave a particular texture of food. I’m not referring to any particular food but just the texture, like something crunchy or chewy or soft. Is this weird?

Anyway, the other day, I wanted to have something chewy and slurpy but not messy so that it’s easy to take to work for my husband. So, I bought a couple of packets of udon noodles and it seemed like it ticked all the boxes, but I had no idea what I was going to do with it.

While udon noodles are very versatile ingredients (it can be served hot or cold and stir fried or served in a soup), you can unwillingly end up with a quite bland taste depending on how you cook it. Do you agree?

So here is my ‘not bland but out of the blue recipe’ that I came up with. I named it out of the blue because I just added whatever ingredients seemed right at that time. 🙂

Still, I used my staple marinade mixture – soy sauce, garlic and honey and I decided to give some Korean twist to it, so it’s not totally out of the blue.

But, the result was real out of the blue! It was super delicious. I can proudly say that it was my best udon noodle dish I’ve ever made. 🙂 I was so glad that I wrote down the ingredients as I was cooking it, so I can share this with you now.

Even though I added a small dose of gochujang, it wasn’t spicy nor could you even tell that I added gochujang in the sauce. It was a well-balanced savory, sweet and juicy (the sauce), crunchy (from the vegetables), tender (from the chicken thigh) and chewy and slurpy (from the udon noodles) meal.

So, I hope you try this soon too!
