Asian Inspired Noodles
This recipe is inspired by different Asian cultures that have left their mark on our culinary history. Chinese were the first Asians to arrive here with the railroad in 1881. Fort Bliss has additionally brought Korean, Japanese, and even Thai families to the region. There was an important amount of Japanese families moving to the border starting in the early 80’s with the advent of “Maquiladoras”.
14 oz. Rice noodles, soaked in boiling water for 5 minutes;
Rinse with cold water and set aside
2 Broccoli crowns, broken down into similar size pieces
1 Carrot, sliced into similar size pieces
5 Mini sweet peppers, sliced into similar size pieces
5 Green onions, white parts and green parts separated
10 oz. Chicken breast, cubed and seasoned with S&P
1 Tbs. Garlic powder
1 Tbs. Ground ginger

Asian Inspired Sauce:
3 Tbs. Oyster sauce
2 Tbs. Rice wine vinegar
1 Tbs. Soy sauce
1 Tbs. Dark soy sauce
1 Tbs. Fish sauce
2 Tbs. Water
Preheat a large pan to medium high heat and start by browning your chicken then setting it aside. Next goes the broccoli and carrots. With a little oil. Season as you go. Once those soften up a bit add in the white parts of the onion, the sweet peppers, and put the chicken back in. Add half of the sauce and let it integrate with the ingredients. Add your noodles and the remaining sauce, toss together and heat through. Turn off the heat and drizzle with sesame seed oil. Serve in a bowl and garnish with the green scallions and a wedge of lime.
