Chicken and Noodles

1. Teriyaki Chicken Yaki Udon (Stir-Fried Udon Noodles)

I love making this teriyaki chicken udon stir-fry dish!

It’s so flavorful yet light and easy to make with the leftovers I have in my fridge.

All the ingredients blend together nicely for a thick and savory sauce and a subtle sweetness from the honey.

Whether you’re looking for something quick or an Asian feast, this recipe has everything you need — it’s definitely one of our favorites!

—Mia Lewis, Tallahassee, Florida

2. 20-Minute Spicy Thai Noodles

These spicy Thai noodles were a fast and flavorful hit!

I switched up my pasta to ramen and added some extra soy sauce, chili paste, and honey for an extra punch of flavor.

You definitely need to adjust the seasoning depending on how much heat you like – which is easy because most of the ingredients are so diverse.

The whole dish can be ready in 20 minutes or less and is sure to satisfy your hunger while delighting your taste buds.

Delightfully reminded me of being at home in Thailand!

—Bertha Rodriguez, Miami, Florida

3. Hoisin Chicken with Noodles

A delicious and savory dinner served in minutes!

It’s the perfect solution for busy weeknights or when you entertain.

My family loves it so much that I started doubling the sauce to give them extra with their noodles.

Flavorful, quick, and easy to make – this is a winner every time!

—Crosslyn James, Fort Worth, Texas

4. Drunken Noodles With Chicken And Veggies

This is an easy and flavorful way to enjoy Drunken Noodles.

I used boneless skinless chicken thighs instead and added a bit more garlic, ginger, oily onions, chilies, and shallots than called for.

The mix of dark soy sauce and fish sauce gave it great aroma and the sweetened brown sugar kicked up the flavor!

Definitely a keeper in my book – delicious!

—Adam Kensur, Eau Claire, Wisconsin

5. Easy Peanut Chicken Noodles

I love this dish.

It’s a great way to mix together sweet, savory, and spicy flavors in one go.

A few changes I made were to reduce the sugar content by skipping the maple syrup, and use chicken breasts instead of thighs which were still tender after stir-frying.

All in all, a delicious meal that I would make again!

—Danielle O’Sullivan, Fairfax Station, Virginia

6. Sesame Chicken Noodle Bowls

This was an absolute hit in our house!

I modified the recipe slightly by brushing the cooked chicken with some of the chili aioli, doubling the garlic and ginger, parboiling before baking instead of grilling to reduce time, and adding 1 package of cream cheese.

The end result was amazing.

Great recipe!

—Jill Fontenot, Killeen, Texas

7. Chicken Lo Mein

I love Chinese takeout, but this homemade Chicken Lo Mein blew me away.

It’s super easy to make and tastes a million times better than what you get from the restaurant.

I increased my garlic because garlic is life in our house, and subbed thin noodles for the egg noodles.

Everyone loved it!

—Kathy Colesworthy, Edmonds, Washington

8. Chicken Mei Fun

My go-to quick dinner recipe!

As a busy mom, this Chicken Mei Fun is right up my alley.

It’s fast, light, and flavorful.

The sauce is the perfect balance of sweet and salty.

I load up with tons of veggies – adding whatever I have on hand from bean sprouts to eggplant to peppers – and serve over brown rice for added nutrition.

A definite crowd-pleaser!

—Susan Bassett, Northampton, Massachusetts

9. Irresistible Pad Thai

This Pad Thai was delectable!

All the ingredients worked perfectly together and it had that classic Pad Thai taste.

I thought there could have been more vegetables and maybe a few other types (such as green peppers) but overall it still tasted great.

The sauce was scrumptious and aromatic, definitely something worth trying again!

—Maria Kercado, El Paso, Texas

10. Kung Pao Chicken and Noodles

This dish was amazing!

I’ve made it 4 times already.

Our family absolutely loves this lovely combination of flavors.

The marinade and the sauces elevate the final result to the next level – they are so delicious, plus they can be easily adapted to your personal taste by adjusting some measurements (especially when it comes to adding more jalapeño or peanuts).

If you’re looking for a dinner that’ll make your family happy, you won’t regret trying out this recipe.

—Vicki Eastwood, High Point, North Carolina

11. Chow Mein (Chinese Fried Noodles)

This recipe is amazing!

I’m so glad I tried it because the flavors just pop.

This chicken chow mein is much healthier than restaurant versions, and the combination of ingredients gives it an incredible depth and complexity of flavor in only 15 minutes.

An added bonus is that you don’t have to track down obscure ingredients like bean sprouts or bok choy.

My only (minor) suggestion would be to add another teaspoon of light soy sauce for a bigger flavor punch, but overall this recipe was fantastic!

—Dahlia Ndungu, Chicago, Illinois

12. Chicken Pot Pie Noodle Skillet

I love this twist on the classic chicken pot pie.

I forgot to add garlic, but it was still so flavorful.

The combination of egg noodles and frozen vegetables gave it a unique texture that everyone in my family approved of – even the picky eaters!

Next time I might try adding some extra veggies or subbing low-sodium vegetable broth for the chicken broth to see what kind of flavors I can get with different combinations.

—Erin Bongard, Spring Hill, Florida


I tried making pad see ew for the first time and I’m so glad I chose this recipe.

It was easy to follow and turned out much better than takeout!

The flavor of the sauces together were just perfect, neither overpowering one another.

Next time I think I might add a little more sugar though, just as a personal touch.

—Haley Stroope, Dallas, Texas

14. Amish Chicken & Noodles

This is totally delicious.

We served it over mashed potatoes, and it was such a hit!

The flavors from the celery, onion, and parsley really deliver an impressive depth of flavor that I wasn’t expecting.

I doubled the amount of egg noodles in this dish because everyone wanted seconds – so that’s worth noting for busy households who need to scale up recipes.

It’s definitely something I would make again!

—Erin Cooper, Buffalo Grove, Illinois

15. Spicy Coconut Curry Chicken and Rice Noodles

I love this recipe!

I didn’t have any pineapple, so had to leave it out, but the flavors were still really amazing.

It’s not overly spicy and has a great balance between sweetness from the coconut milk and saltiness from the soy sauce.

Perfect for two people with some leftovers, or even makes a great lunch if you are on your own.

My only suggestion is to add an extra kick of spice by adding more sriracha.

—Kim Walsh, Traverse City, Michigan

16. Vietnamese Noodles

Dinners have been so much more fun since I discovered this Vietnamese Noodle recipe.

The amazing flavor wraps you in richness and warmth, with an amazing flavor combination and texture coming from the lemongrass chicken, noodles, and veggies.

I forgo the fish sauce, to keep it pescatarian-friendly and replace with a bit of tamari – still gets that salty element!

—Kali Allen, Cathedral City, California

17. Vietnamese Chicken And Glass Noodle Soup (Miến Gà)

This recipe for Miến Gà was great!

When all of the ingredients came together, it created a warm, flavorful, and light soup perfect for any winter day.

Plus it’s really easy to put together with just a few simple ingredients.

The only changes I made were to reduce the amount of salt and double the cilantro sprigs for more flavor in my pot.

—Mia Liem, Cambridge, Massachusetts

18. Teriyaki Chicken Noodle Bowls

Teriyaki Chicken Noodle Bowls

We all loved the teriyaki chicken noodle bowls – I think it has become our new favorite weeknight dinner!

It was simple and came together quickly, and everyone commented on how fresh the homemade teriyaki sauce tasted.

With just a few small modifications (Doubled garlic, and added sesame oil for extra flavor), this recipe continues to hit the spot every time.

—Emma Chapman, Florence, Oregon

19. Thai Red Curry Noodles

These noodles were a hit in my house!

I made mine with a sautéed combination of peppers and other veggies plus chicken, but they’d work well with anything you have.

The flavors in the coconut milk and curry paste were amazing — salty and sweet, yet still light enough that it’s not too rich.

I increased the cornstarch slightly to thicken it up and squeezed an extra lemon wedge at the end to cut some of the sweetness.

—Kendra Ludington, Dallas, Texas

20. Vietnamese Noodle Bowl with Chicken

This delicious and healthy noodle bowl was a huge hit at our table.

I love Asian flavors, so this dish is sure up there with my favorites!

It’s very simple to make – no fancy ingredients needed – but it packs some serious flavor thanks to the Vietnamese-inspired sauce.

The only thing I changed was adding more chicken for extra protein and using chili instead of red pepper flakes for added heat.

—Abigail Adelman, Boston, Massachusetts


This slow-cooker chicken noodle soup was an absolute hit!

Flavorful and so easy to put together, my family loves it.

I did make a couple of changes; used 2 lemons instead of 1 for more flavor, left out the thyme, and doubled the rosemary (I really love that flavor).

The spaghetti was perfect in this – not too soft like I worried it might be.

Definitely a winning recipe in my house!

—Maggie Hamilton, Brentwood, California

22. French Onion Chicken Noodle Casserole

My family loved this casserole!

Everyone raved about it and had seconds.

I used more chicken than indicated for a meatier feast, plus two different cheeses for additional flavor. I also added some garlic powder to the mix.

Instead of freezing half in a foil container, I opted to make more noodles – so that there was enough for everyone the first time around, then froze an entire casserole with extra cheese on top for next week’s dinner.

—Emily Farris, Marietta, Georgia

23. Chicken & Broccoli Noodles

This is the perfect weeknight dinner recipe when you don’t have much time and energy to cook.

I prepare this dish all the time for my family using chicken breast, tender-stem broccoli, and egg noodles (I love how quickly they boil!).

I make some tweaks by adding a bit of garlic and chili as well – which makes it even more flavorful!

That said, it’s pretty good with just the ingredients provided in this recipe too.


—Don DeRosa, Reading, Massachusetts

24. Lemon Butter Chicken

This lemon butter chicken is delightful!

I used a full-sized onion instead of the small one required and added some garlic too.

The zesty citrus flavor isn’t overwhelming – just enough to underscore the natural flavors of the chicken and pasta.

Delicious for those weeknight meals when you’re out of ideas or time.

—Sandy Vossler, Stillwater, Minnesota

25. Thai Red Curry Noodle Soup

This red curry noodle soup is amazing – bursting with flavor and SO easy!

My first attempt was a big hit, everyone asked for more.

I doubled the garlic and ginger and it was nice to have those strong flavors carry through.

The presentation looks really impressive on the table – though next time I think I’ll get some fresh chili peppers for an added bit of heat if that’s your style.

—Ankit Batra, Minneapolis, Minnesota

26. Stir Fry Noodles with Chicken and Vegetables

My family was happily surprised at how easy this recipe is and how much it tastes like something from a Chinese takeaway!

We left the chili paste out in favor of red pepper flakes for a bit more heat, but otherwise followed the recipe.

I cooked some extra vegetables because we wanted our stir-fry to be packed with veggies.

The chicken thighs were so tender and juicy after marinating in the soy sauce mixture that wouldn’t have minded more either.

—John Turner, Glenwood City, Wisconsin

27. Soba Noodle Chicken and Vegetables Stir Fry in a Spicy Peanut Sauce

This dish is full of flavor!

Even better, the easy prep and minimal cook time make it a great weeknight dinner go-to.

The vegetables maintain their bite (which I love), while the peanut sauce really ties all of the flavors together quite nicely.

Of course, if you prefer something spicier, like my family does, increase the amount of chili peppers or red pepper flakes.

—Finn Davis, Macomb Township, Michigan

28. Ginger Glazed Chicken Ramen

I had to try something new, so I tried this recipe.

It was SO GOOD! Sweet and savory all-in-one dish – perfection!

For an added kick of flavor, I used fresh ginger instead of dried wherever possible.

My only change for next time is adding extra red pepper flakes.

Everyone at the dinner party loved it and asked for the recipe which made me very proud!

—Megan Cheatham, Richmond, Virginia

29. 30 Minute Creamy Thai Turmeric Chicken and Noodles

This dish is a lifesaver on busy weeknights.

It has just the right combination of flavors, is simple to make, and reaches that perfect balance between healthy and hearty.

I used slightly more olive oil when frying up the garlic and shallots, as well as fresh ginger instead of ground for some added texture.

The result was so delicious!

—Francis Archuleta, Los Alamos, New Mexico

30. Pad Woon Sen (Thai Glass Noodles Stir Fry Recipe)

I make this about twice a month for my family.

It’s always flavorful and easy to prepare with familiar ingredients – I always keep the veggies, protein, and sauce mix on hand in my pantry and fridge.

I substituted bell peppers instead of tomatoes because they were out of season at my grocery store.

We even use it as a side dish when we have company over!

—Brad Armstrong, Tillamook, Oregon

31. Cashew Chicken Noodle Stir Fry

This cashew chicken noodle stir fry was definitely a hit in my household!

The mix of flavors with the nuttiness of the cashews, combined with the fresh vegetables and crunchy noodles is just perfect.

I did add some extra vegetables – broccoli instead of cabbage, peppers instead of carrots — as well as a bit more garlic, which really amped up the flavor.

—Raegan Jacobs, Atlanta, Georgia

32. Ultimate Chicken Noodle Casserole

This casserole definitely lives up to its name!

The flavor combination was perfect.

Creamy, cheesy, and just the right amount of seasoning from the ranch mix.

Usually, with recipes like this that call for canned soup it can be a bit bland but not here.

Definitely will make this again – maybe adding in some other veggies I have around next time too!

—Meredith Zimmermann, Los Angeles, California

33. Cheesy Chicken Noodle Casserole

This Cheesy Chicken Noodle Casserole is delicious and easy to make.

I tweaked the recipe a bit, swapping out the grilled chicken for the canned soup.

It made a big difference in flavor!

And I used sharp cheddar instead of mozzarella on top and added some red pepper flakes for a kick.

The kids devoured it!

Deliciously satisfying without being too heavy, 5 stars from this family – certainly going into our quick-meal rotation.

—Jennifer Robison, Jupiter, Florida

34. Vietnamese Noodle Salad with Lemongrass Chicken

Vietnamese Noodle Salad with Lemongrass Chicken

I LOVED this noodle salad!

The combination of flavors was amazing, and I really enjoyed the burst of freshness that was added by the julienned cucumber and shredded carrot.

The lemongrass chicken marinated perfectly with the other ingredients.

My suggestion for improvement would be to add more chile peppers for an extra kick, but overall it is a great dish bursting with flavor.

—Sam Huber, Portland, Oregon

35. Sweet and sour chicken with noodles and vegetables

This dish turned out delicious!

It was great for small family dinners or enough if we wanted to reduce it for large gatherings.

I added bok choy, which enhanced the flavor greatly and cut the sweetness a bit.

It’s also quick to make on days when you are short of time.

We reserved some sauce to drizzle over the noodles later, adding freshness and enhancing all the flavors even more.

—Bee Tanlovethong, Scarborough, Ontario
