Yakisoba-RecipeThis is a great “Khwanjai Unique” Yakisoba noodles recipe, influenced by her time working in Japan, she created this recipe using Thai cooking style applied to a Japanese dish.

Yakisoba, sometimes written Yaki Soba is really a Japanese recipe but as Khwanjai is part Japanese, and several Thai recipes are influenced by Japanese cuisine so it is natural for us to include this “Yaki Soba Recipe” and chicken yakisoba is very popular in Thailand and served in many restaurants

The kids’ll love this one, it’s not spicy at all but can be if you prefer. During the making of this video tutorial we actually make pork yakisoba instead of chicken as in this recipe, just to demonstrate that either is great

How to Make Yakisoba
This recipe will feed 4 small/medium
sized kids or two adults
1 Pack of “Fresh” Yakisoba “Egg noodles” about 300g
1 Chicken Breast (200g)
2 Quality Hot dogs
1 Cup Cabbage (chopped)
1 Cup Bean Sprouts
1/2 Onion (about 1/2 cup when cut)
1 Carrot (about 1/2 cup when cut)
2 Cloves garlic
2 tbs Oil
2 tbs Thai Seasoning Sauce
2 tbs Oyster sauce
2 ts sugar
1 ts pepper

Wash and cut chicken breast, small, thin slices and the hot dogs diagonally (slices not logs) to about 1″ long (see recipe video)

Flatten, squish, squash and chop the garlic (don’t go mad, I was kidding) Rough cut, Ok?

Cut carrot, cabbage & onion (no tears please) rinse and mix together

Drop Yakisoba into boiling water for 1 minute remove and leave, (you can even run under hot tap for 2 mins)

Cooking Instructions:
Heat the oil medium high heat, put in garlic until you have that lovely aroma, (5-10 seconds)

Add chicken and stir until white (about 2 minutes)

Add hot dogs, stir for a further 1-2 minutes

Add vegetables stir and mix for 2 minutes

Add warm Yakisoba noodles and mix in

Lastly add seasoning sauce, sugar & oyster sauce, mix and stir for 2 minutes turn off gas add freshly ground pepper on top

Serving Suggestions: Serve in a bowl and eat with chop sticks (more fun for the kids) if you like it spicy you can add Red Chilli Powder We sometimes like to add a sprinkling of fried garlic on top too

Now you’ve mastered this one try our Noodles with Pork Recipe, dare I say it, pot noodles are based on this recipe, but this is wholesome and is almost as quick to make

Jules’s Blurb: Pad Yakisoba a versatile recipe and a great snack meal

We had fun making this video….

The out-takes were many
And the air turned blue
Oi got the giggles
And set me off too!

Khwanjai, (bless her English) got her “tea” and “table” spoons mixed up the recipe is correct and right at the end she mixes English and Japanese and sets off again, silly girl!

Khwanjai’s Top Tips:
Try to get fresh egg (yakisoba) noodles, but if using dried noodles, boil them first for a few minutes until they soften before you start cooking the recipe, don’t worry if they cool down while you make the 1st part of the recipe

Print the recipe and make some notes, there’s quite a few tips in this tutorial. Please leave a review if you have time…
