3boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
1cupstringless snap peas
3cupsshredded cabbage or coleslaw mix
2large carrotpeeled and shredded
1-2pinchesred pepper flakes
375gbox whole grain spaghettini pasta(or an equal amount of dried ramen or chow mein noodles)
Add oil to a large pot and cook chicken over medium-high heat, just until mostly browned.
Add pepper, peas, cabbage and carrot and cook for 2-3 minutes, until veggies are softened slightly.
Add garlic, ginger, and pepper flakes and cook 1 minute.
Stir in broth, soy sauce and hoisin sauce and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add pasta and reduce heat to medium.
Cook the pasta, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes until pasta is separated (we don't want no clumps!) most of the liquid has been absorbed. Cover and cook for 3-4 more minutes until pasta is al dente or cooked to your preference.
If desired, combine corn starch and water and stir into pasta to thicken sauce. Serve.
You can easily substitute shredded chicken! Just make the recipe as written, omitting the raw cubed chicken. Add the shredded chicken close to the end of the cooking process, so that it heats through without overcooking.
