This recipe is one of those wonderful clean-out-the-fridge recipes. It's a great use for leftover chicken and whatever veggies are left in your veggie drawer. I threw on some teriyaki and sriracha-marinated chicken breasts when the hubby was grilling earlier in the week, in the hopes that I'd have a use for some cooked chicken.
Because the chicken is already cooked, this comes together very quickly for a weeknight meal. I used instant Asian noodles that were ready in about 3 minutes, making it even faster.
And speaking of leftovers, like all pasta, this doesn't reheat terribly well. Am I the only one who has that problem?
