Food makes me happy.
Reading it, writing about it, looking at it...and duh! - eating it...
So here is another recipe for you guys. :) I decided to share an Asian inspired recipe.
I shall definitely give this a shot; sounds super healthy as well. I think though that I may sub either the udon or linguine with mung beans {lower in cals too}.
Bon Appetit!

Chicken, Edamame, and Noodle Stir-Fry
A one-bowl dinner, Japanese style. If you can't find udon noodles, use linguine ~ just break the noodles in half before boiling them. Edamame are green soybeans.
Prep Time: 25 minutes.
Total Time: 25 minutes.
Serves: Four.

coarse salt and ground pepper
7 ounces udon noodles or linguine
2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (6 to 8 ounces each), cut crosswise into thin strips
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1/2 napa cabbage (about 1 pound), thinly shredded
2 cups frozen shelled edamame
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce

1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook noodles until al dente, according to package instructions. Drain, and rinse under cold water; drain again, and set aside.

2. While pasta is cooking, in a medium bowl, toss chicken with cornstarch; season with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Cook chicken in two batches, until light brown on the outside and opaque throughout, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate (reserve skillet).

3. Add remaining tablespoon oil to skillet; add onion and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until softened, 1 to 3 minutes. Add cabbage, and cook, stirring frequently, until tender, 2 to 4 minutes.

4. Add edamame, vinegar, soy sauce, chicken, and noodles; season with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing, until noodles and edamame are warmed through, 3 to 5 minutes.

Sounds healthy and yummy.
I am sure you guys can sub some of the vegetables or add whatever type of veggies you'd like {I am thinking broccoli and the like}.
Enjoy! Let me know if you try it. As per usual. Lol.
