A Weekend Meal

Want an easy Friday dinner? I made this last weekend and it was fast and good-- two of my favorite words when it comes to meal preparation.

First, take some chicken and marinate in teriyaki sauce.

A few hours later hand it to your husband and ask him to grill it.

While he's outside grilling heat up a pot full of water. When it boils, throw a package of Soba noodles (found in the Asian section of your grocery store) into the water and cook them according to package directions. Two minutes before the noodles are done, add a big package of frozen broccoli florets to the water and continue boiling.

Drain the noodles and broccoli, then toss with bottled peanut sauce that you also bought in the Asian section of your grocery store. By this time the chicken should be done.

Slice the chicken into bite-sized pieces and toss the chicken in with the noodles and broccoli. Then if you're feeling especially ambitious you can garnish the top of this concoction with some chopped cashews or peanuts.

This doesn't take a lot of effort and is a yummy meal. We had this for dessert and the whole meal-- start to finish-- was a big hit with the whole family.
Pin It!

This sounds yummy! I also have a quick chicken dish -- marinate breats in soy sauce & Italian dressing (equal parts). Then grill. Quick, easy, no thinking -- just what I need some evenings. I'll have to try yours some time.
