Southwest Noodle Stir Fry



 (printable recipe)
Serves 2

 
1 raw Corn Cob
 
Chipotle Seasoning
 Black Pepper
1 medium Chayote Squash
1 each, Red, Yellow, Orange Pepper
1 medium Sweet Onion
10 ounces Chicken Breast
1 package
Yaki-Soba Japanese Stir Fry Noodles
1 tbl Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Sprinkle of Adobo Sauce




Heat up your grill. Sprinkle the corn cob with chipotle seasoning and black pepper. I use Mrs. Dash chipotle seasoning, which I love. But, use your favorite. Grill over high heat, turning every 3-4 minutes, until the corn is nicely roasted with light and dark colors.
Remove from grill. When cool, use a sharp knife to cut the corn off the cob. Set aside.
Slice chayote squash, and cut slices into thin matchsticks. Set aside.
Cut and slice peppers into thin matchsticks. Set aside. I used the mini peppers that come in bags. You can also use large peppers and just use a little. Cut onion into very small slices, and then cut the rings into quarters. Set aside.
Trim and slice your chicken into small, thin strips. I used approx. 5 ounces per person. Sprinkle chicken with chipotle seasoning.
Heat noodles under hot water according to the package directions. The hot water break the noodles apart.
 Aren't these noodles gorgeous?!
 
Heat 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil on medium heat. Add the chicken, and start to cook over medium high heat.
Add corn, chayote, peppers and onions. Stir as they cook. Cook until chicken is done, but be careful to not overcook.
Add noodles and continue to cook. Keep stirring to insure even cooking. Check a piece of chicken and a pepper to make sure they are done.
The stir fry will look fresh and vibrant. Sprinkle a little adobo sauce over the stirfry.
So beautiful and full of flavor!
