How to Make Chicken Teriyaki Recipe with Noodles
- Prepare your soba noodles according to the package instructions and reserve 1/4 cup of water.
- In a large skillet over medium heat add 1 teaspoon of oil.
- Add in the chicken and cook the strips for 7-8 minutes. Remove and then set them aside.
- Add in the second teaspoon of oil to the pan.
- Place your vegetables and saute for 5-6 minutes or until they just begin to soften. Return the chicken to the skillet with the veggies.
- Prepare the sauce by whisking together the soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and Splenda in a small saucepan.
- Combine the water and cornstarch in a bowl and add it to the soy sauce mixture. Whisk until the mixture just begins to thicken. This should take about 3 minutes.
- Pour the sauce over the top of the chicken and vegetables.
- Add in the reserved soba water and let cook for another 1-2 minutes.

How do I make teriyaki sauce better?
For added flavor, sweetness, and freshness you can add a tablespoon of pineapple juice. This helps to cut down on some acidity in the sauce as well.
How do you thicken up teriyaki sauce?
The cornstarch slurry added to the recipe is meant to help thicken up the sauce. If your sauce does not thicken after adding in the cornstarch slurry turn up the heat a little bit as oftentimes all that is needed is a warmer liquid to help activate and thicken the cornstarch.
How healthy is chicken teriyaki?
The dish as a whole can be somewhat unhealthy but we are making smarter choices with this homemade version. By choosing low sodium soy sauce, adding in vegetables, and using Splenda as our sweetener we are cutting down on sodium and sugars while increasing nutrients on every plate.

There’s always so much hidden sugar (among other things!) in Chinese food, it drives me nuts! Making your own is totally the way to go and love that you used Splenda in this chicken noodle bowl, all the perfect Chinese food flavor without the added sugar calories!
