Peking Chicken Stir-Fry Over Black Bean Noodles


Peking Chicken Stir-Fry over Black Bean NoodlesIt is not uncommon for my husband and I to make chicken stir-fry at least once a week.  Honestly, it is our go-to meal on really busy nights especially when he gets home late from work.  Usually,  we prepare everything from scratch but in the spirit of keeping it simple, we like to use frozen veggie to prepare this meal.

What I love about this dish is that it is super easy and really satisfying and while there is nothing wrong with the current way we make it, I recently came across something fun while shopping at an organic store that I thought would add some dimension to the dish. 

Peking Chicken Stir-Fry over Black Bean NoodlesHow tasty do these black bean noodles look? (The picture I took is terrible but if you visit their site Explore-Asian.com, you can find more info & better pictures). They caught my attention right away when I was browsing and since we were making the chicken stir-fry for dinner that night I decided they would make the perfect addition! Each serving has 25 grams of protein and 12 grams of fiber and is naturally gluten free!

 Here is the recipe for the chicken stir-fry using the black bean noodles:

My apologies for the lack of photos- we were really hungry when preparing the dish so eating took priority over food photography 😉 I have to say, it was pretty delicious (and quick to make) and the addition of the black bean noodles added a touch of Asian flavor that really enhanced the overall flavor profile of the dish!

Have you ever tried black bean noodles? What is your favorite week night go-to meal?
