If there’s one thing I can definitely say to be true about myself and my 3 siblings, it’s that we all have a huge weakness for Chinese food. It was always a sort-of unspoken tradition that when my two older siblings came home from college during the holidays, there was going to be one night of the week where we completely forwent any other plans of eating a traditional holiday meal and went straight to the phone book to find the number to our favorite local Chinese restaurant to order takeout.
Growing up in a small city, I loved the convenience of being able to phone up my favorite restaurants that offered takeout and going to pick up the food in a jiffy – and it was even better when those places offered delivery! Things are a bit different now that I live in a very rural area, though. The “local” Chinese restaurant is over 30 minutes away from my house, so going to pick up ordered food is quite the ordeal, and they certainly aren’t going to deliver food to our door living way out in the middle of nowhere!
Needless to say, over time I’ve learned to get a little creative in making my own version of Chinese takeout, and this recipe for Chicken Teriyaki Noodle Bowls always satisfies and delivers those delicious Chinese flavors that I frequently crave!
And while I love to use traditional elements and ingredients when cooking Chinese food, I also really love to add my own flair and personal touches to elevate dishes and give them new life. When I’ve got my heart set on devouring noodles, I love to use No Yolks Broad Noodles as a healthy egg noodle alternative in many of my favorite Chinese takeout-inspired recipes.
I can vividly remember my mother purchasing No Yolks Broad Noodles on a regular basis when I was growing up. She loved No Yolks because they were made with egg whites instead of egg yolks, making them contain no cholesterol and a small amount of fat and sodium. I particularly remember her making these noodles as an after school snack that her and I would share together. All we would add was just a tad of butter and we ate them plain! I’ve always been a sauce kind off girl when it comes to noodles, but these are the only noodles I’ve tried that are completely delicious all on their own!
I love how versatile No Yolks Noodles are. While they’re delicious in more traditional uses such as stroganoff or casseroles, they’re the bomb-diggity when you toss them in a little homemade teriyaki sauce! Making these Chicken Teriyaki Noodle Bowls is incredibly simple, and the flavors are, dare I say, way better than Chinese takeout!
