This Chicken Yakisoba is sure to satisfy those Asian food cravings! It’s a delicious Japanese noodle dish that’s packed with chicken and veggies and tossed with a simple, flavorful sauce.

This is a comforting dish you’ll want to make again and again.

I made it twice in one week and I’m already thinking about then next time we’ll get to eat it!

Traditionally you’d find this made with Chuno sauce but for easier to find ingredients here in the U.S. a great substitute is Worcestershire and ketchup (which is what I used here).

And to simplify the dish without sacrificing any flavor I used Gourmet Garden Ginger Paste and Gourmet Garden Chunky Garlic Paste.

No peeling and mincing the awkwardly shaped ginger knobs and garlic. Just squeeze and measure out straight from the tube to the pan.

I love Gourmet Garden products because they can be used just like fresh herbs but they last longer so there’s less waste, the pastes last up to 3 months once opened and the lightly dried herbs last up to 4 weeks.

I love knowing that their herbs contain simple organic ingredients like herbs/spice, canola oil and sea salt. Their products are organically grown and sourced in Australia and are non-GMO.

Gourmet Garden products are now available in the produce section at Kroger stores in the following varieties: Basil, Cilantro, Chili Pepper, Ginger, Parsley and Chives.

The ginger paste is my personal favorite and I frequently buy it for things like soups, smoothies, chicken dishes and stir fries. It’s all too convenient and it has a great flavor!

And it’s a key flavor in this perfectly delicious Chicken Yakisoba!

Noodle stir fries are the best!

  • Agnes Ma: I found “Chicken Yakisoba Stir Fry” recipe in your website. Therefore, I searched Yakisoba noodle & found it in my local Asian store. I opened the package & found out there are 3 packages of seasoning included. But in your recipe, “Chicken Yakisoba Stir Fry”, you did not use those seasonings. Could you tell me why? If I use those seasoning, do I still need to use the sauce mixture (soy sauce, oyster sauce, mirin, worcestershire & sugar)? June 8, 2018 at 1:00pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: The seasoning just isn’t needed here. I prefer the flavor of the ingredients added here and if you added it it would be too salty. June 9, 2018 at 12:53pm Reply

  • Shawna: Loved it! Will make again for sure – thanks!! December 11, 2017 at 9:48pm Reply

  • Jocelyn: We loved this! One thing that saved me a little time was using the microwave to soften the noodles (1 minute per each pack) rather than boiling them in water. This wasn’t my genius idea, but a recommendation on the noodle package. Anyway, I highly recommend this dish, and I will be making it again.

    Thank you! October 8, 2017 at 9:17pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I’m glad the microwave worked for you it didn’t work for me mine still stuck like glue (hot water as recommend didn’t work either), but maybe my next package will work :)!
      I’m so glad you liked this Yakisoba Jocelyn, thanks for your review!! October 8, 2017 at 9:27pm Reply

  • Paula: I looked all over my local Kroger and couldn’t find refrigerated yakisoba noodles. Can I substitute dried ones or another alternative? September 28, 2017 at 2:02pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Dried or fresh ramen could be used as well or another asian egg noodle or rice noodle. Even spaghetti would probably work here. Hope you love it Paula! September 28, 2017 at 4:41pm Reply

  • Carl: mmm, rly good September 28, 2017 at 7:54am Reply

  • Linda Carol: As Gourmet Garden pastes are not available in our area, could you please provide the required equivalent in fresh minced garlic and ginger?
    Thank you. September 28, 2017 at 6:59am Reply

    • Jaclyn: It would be the equal amounts of each. September 28, 2017 at 9:56am Reply

  • Rebeccca: I have a question about substitute ingredients. I have a seafood allergy and cannot use Worcestershire sauce or oyster sauce….any suggestions?? September 28, 2017 at 6:50am Reply
