Perfect for an easy and healthy dinner recipe, these chicken stir fry soba noodle bowls are super delicious and great for healthy meal planning.
Last Friday when I posted the recipe for no bake oatmeal cookie energy bites (which I’ve already made another batch of) I shared that I was making eating healthier a priority this year, and a big part of that for me is trying to do better at meal planning. If I don’t plan ahead, during the week I’m more likely to eat not-the-best options. When thinking of meals that would reheat well at work, I immediately thought of these delicious chicken stir fry soba noodle bowls.
Because, truth is, I’ve made these chicken stir fry soba noodle bowls a bunch of times because they’re super easy to make and so so SO good (my hubby even requests them!) You start by marinating chicken tenders (I love using chicken tenders for time saving because they cook faster, but chicken breasts cut into strips would work just fine), I am pretty much obsessed with these Pyrex bowls with lids, I use them all the time, and they’re perfect for holding the chicken and marinade. I just put the chicken and the marinade in the bowl and can cover it and let it marinate in the refrigerator – easy peasy! Another thing I love using is ginger stir-in paste, totally reduces prep time because you’re not peeling and grating ginger!
The rest of making these chicken stir fry soba noodles bowls is simple as well, you cook the chicken and then add a peanut butter sauce which coats the stir fry veggies. All the while the noodles cook away. The veggies and chicken with the peanut butter sauce, it’s SO incredibly delicious and comforting. For diving them up I used a food scale like this one (I’ve had a few different food scales over the years but this one is by far my fave) and weigh each portion out (I weigh the total components and then divide by how many servings I’m making).
If making these for a dinner and not calorie counting I’d say it makes 4 servings, but I wanted to make them a little smaller for lunches and found that it easily divided up into 5 containers (total calories or one serving is only 370!)
Do you do meal planning? I’d love to know! I’m slowly getting into it and am always looking for any tips and tricks you have! Also, I was sharing behind-the-scenes of making these over on Sapchat (username: SweetPhi)!
These chicken stir fry soba noodle bowls are great for a quick dinner or for lunches throughout the week, enjoy!
