Orange Hoisin Chicken Stir Fry with Soba Noodles

Making dinners when you are trying to pack and move is a challenge.
Half your stuff is packed away, you don’t have as many groceries, and your kitchen table is full of papers and boxes.

I thought a stir fry would be quick and easy and you can eat it while sitting on the couch!

This Orange Hoisin Chicken tastes fantastic. I love anything with noodles!

What you need,

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2 inch strips
Salt and Pepper
1 tbsp. peanut oil
3 cloves garlic, sliced very thinly
1 cup orange juice
¼ cup hoisin sauce
2 tbsp. rice wine or sherry cooking wine
1 ½ tbsp. rice wine vinegar or cider vinegar
3 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. chili paste
2 tbsp. soy sauce
2 tsp. toasted sesame oil
1 tsp. corn starch
2 tbsp. cold water
1 red pepper, sliced into thin strips
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 cup snow peas
1 small package of soba noodles cooked according to package directions (about 2 ½ cups cooked noodles)

In a large skillet heat the oil over medium high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and cook for 5-6 minutes until the chicken is well browned.
Remove from the pan and set aside.

Add the veggies to the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes until they start to soften. Add the garlic and cook 1-2 minutes longer.
Remove the veggies from the pan to a plate.

Add the orange juice to the pan and cook simmering gently until it has reduced by about half, about 5 minutes.

In a small bowl stir together the hoisin sauce, rice wine, vinegar, brown sugar, chili paste, soy sauce and sesame oil.

Once the orange juice has reduced add the hoisin mixture to the pan. Bring it to a boil. Stir the corn starch into the water and add to the pan. Cook 1-2 minutes until the sauce thickens.

Meanwhile cook the soba noodles according to the package directions. Drain and rinse until cold water.

Add the chicken and veggies back to the pan and cook 1-2 minutes until heated through. Toss in the noodles and stir to coat.

Serve right away.

This stir fry was amazing. The sauce has so much flavour.
You could toss in any veggies you like, broccoli would be great or water chestnuts, yum!

It was super quick and easy to put together, a perfect dinner!
