What You Need

  • 1 pound whole wheat spaghetti

  • 14 ounces of chicken breast tenders
  • sesame seed oil (1 teaspoon for marinade, 2 tablespoon for sauce, plus extra to cook)
  • soy sauce (1 tablespoon for marinade, 2 tablespoon for sauce, plus extra to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon brown rice miso paste
  • 1 tablespoon sweet wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon agave
  • white pepper (to taste)
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 1/2 cups finely chopped veggies (I used cabbage and carrots)

What You Do

  1. Whisk together 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, 1 teaspoon sesame oil, miso paste, and white pepper. Marinate chicken.
  2. Cook spaghetti in chicken broth or water until al dente. Toss in some sesame seed oil and set aside.
  3. Heat a little sesame oil in a skillet over medium heat. Saute chicken (with marinade) until it is almost completely cooked. Remove from skillet. (After the chicken cools a bit is when I roughly slice the tenders into bite size chunks).
  4. Whisk together 2 tablespoon sesame oil, 2 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 tablespoon sweet wine vinegar, and 1 teaspoon agave.
  5. Heat skillet over high heat again and saute minced garlic in a little sesame oil until you can smell the garlic. Toss in the noodles, then the sauce mixture, then the veggies. Using tongs, mix everything up for a few minutes.
  6. Toss in chicken and finish cooking, adding water or chicken broth if it gets too dry. Serve hot.
