Zomppa's Chicken and Broccoli Stir-Fry


1 inch ginger, grated
1 teaspoon of dried chili pepper flakes
2 tablespoons canola oil
4 ounces of soba whole-grain noodles
1 medium sized chicken breast, skinless/boneless
1/2 an onion, diced
1/2 pound of broccoli florets
1/8 cup of soy sauce
3 tablespoons of brown sugar


In a large wok or frying pan, heat the oil, garlic, ginger and pepper flakes over low heat for 5-6 minutes. Do not allow garlic to burn! You just want to infuse the oil.
In the meantime, tenderize your meat by placing the chicken breast in between two pieces of plastic wrap. Beat it with a meat tenderizer or rolling pin and flatten to about ¼ inch thick. Slice into ¼ inch strips.
Bring another pot of water to boil (enough to cook the noodles)
Turn the heat up to medium and add the chicken. Stir constantly, but allow meat to brown. When meat is about half way cooked, add the hoisin sauce, soy sauce and brown sugar. Cook meat thoroughly then remove from heat.
Add the broccoli and cook for 5 minutes.
Once the pot of water is boiling, add the noodles and cook for about 7-8 minutes. Should be slightly al dente.
After 5 minutes, add the chicken back into the wok with the broccoli and cook for another 2-3 minutes. When the noodles are done, drain, and quickly add to the chicken and broccoli dish. Remove the wok from dish once the noodles absorb the liquid. Add the teaspoon of toasted sesame oil. Serve and enjoy!
