Toddler Serving

Mommy Serving, Daddy's working late!!



Teriyaki Chicken noodle bowls

I haven't been getting much sleep lately and as a result I have a cold.  Sore throat and a cold sore.  Also I ate some fruit that I occasionally have a allergic reaction to and now I have little canker sores in my mouth.  So eating?? Not fun!!
But I have a 19 month old toddler to feed and she doesn't get that mommy is tired and doesn't feel like cooking, and because we are watching our finances, ordering out is well.... OUT!!   So I am making up a recipe tonight.   I often make up recipes, its how I cook!!

2 chicken breasts- $1.66
enough water to cover chicken breasts in pan
1 onion diced.13 cents
2 carrots diced. .10 cents
2 TBS butter-.50 cents
1/2 TBS oil- .25 cents
Dash of soy sauce- .05 cents
Dash of Worcestershire sauce.05 cents
1 bag of frozen stir fry vegetables- (broccoli, red bell peppers, onions and mushrooms).99 cents
1/2 cup water
2 pkg of Knorr Asian  sides Teriyaki noodles (Lo mein noodles in a sweet teriyaki sauce) $1.76
3 cups water
2 TBS butter-.50 cents
and a dash of Agave-.50 cents

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Put your frozen or fresh chicken breasts in sauce pan or deep fry pan.  Cover with water, and add dash of Soy sauce and Dash of Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil and cook till done.  10 to 15 minutes.  Meanwhile saute onions and carrots in melted butter in another frying pan.  After about 5 to 8 minutes, add 1/2 cup of water and cover.  Steam carrots and onions for about 5 to 8 minutes.  Add frozen veg.  Cover again, adding more water if needed.  ( I just used a ladle or two of the water I was boiling chicken in.) Remove chicken from sauce pan and dice into cubes or strips.  Put on top of veggie mixture in frying pan and cover.  In saucepan you cooked the chicken in, remove any excess water and cook noodles as directed except a dash of agave.

Mix it all together and serve in bowls.
