Yakitori Noodle Bowls

This recipe was on the Rachael Ray show back in January, and now I'm so mad at myself that I didn't try it sooner. Kids LOVE noodles and one spice that they usually love is ginger, so this meal was a definite kid pleaser. We will definitely be making it again soon! I used fettuccine because I couldn't find soba noodles anywhere, and it turned out great. Also- let your kids put the "sprinkles" (sesame seeds) on their own dish, they will think it's fun.

Yakitori Noodle Bowls
Recipe from Rachael Ray

1 pound soba noodles (or fettuccine)
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
2-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and grated or finely minced
freshly ground black pepper
2 bunches green onions, trimmed of roots and cut into 2-inch pieces on an angle
1/3 cup dry sherry
1/3 cup tamari (or soy sauce)
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
toasted sesame seeds for garnish
Place a large pot of water over high heat for the noodles. Add salt once boiling, then cook pasta according to package and drain.
While the water is coming to a boil, heat vegetable oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Toss chicken with the grated ginger and season with some pepper. Let it brown for 5 or so minutes.
Stir the chicken mixture then add the green onions, sherry, tamari, sugar and sesame oil. Bring to a bubble and simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the drained noodles to the skillet and toss to combine. Sprinkle with some toasted sesame seeds to garnish.
