Asian Noodle Bowl

I am trying to add more healthy elements into my everyday meals. To me healthy means whole wheat and more veggies. So this is one of my attempts at a more healthy asian noodle bowl. I was surprised how delicious it was without my usual 1/2 C. of soy and szechuan and teriyaki sauces that I usually smother a dinner like this in.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Small Box of Whole Wheat Spaghetti (cooked al dente)
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper (diced)
  • 1 Jalapeno (diced)
  • 2 Cloves Garlic (minced)
  • 1/2 Yellow Onion (small dice)
  • 1 C. Snow Pea Pods
  • 1 C. Broccoli (Chopped)
  • 1 C. Carrots (julienned)
  • 2 Chicken Breasts (Butterflied then diced into bite size pieces)
  • 1 C. Vegetable Broth
  • 2 T. Lemon Juice
  • 3 T. Soy Sauce
  • 3 T. Hoisin Sauce
  • 4 T. Olive Oil
