Chicken Yaki Udon
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook udon in boiling water, stirring occasionally, until noodles are tender yet firm to the bite, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain noodles and rinse with cold water.Advertisement
Meanwhile, warm olive oil in large saucepan or wok over medium heat. Add chicken and saute until cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Add onion, bell pepper, cabbage, carrots, and garlic. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, allowing vegetables to maintain most of their crispness.
Pour soy sauce over vegetables and chicken; saute 1 to 2 minutes more. Add udon noodles and toss well. Mix in gojuchang and ketchup, thoroughly combining to mix all the flavors. Season with salt and pepper.
Boneless chicken thighs may be used in place of boneless chicken breasts, if preferred.
Orange of yellow bell pepper can be substituted for red, if you'd like.
