From the Test Kitchen

Chefs, tonight you’ll be making our take on “yakiudon,” a Japanese stir-fried noodle dish. It combines udon—a pleasantly chewy noodle—with a variety of savory ingredients in a delicious soy-based sauce. Udon noodles are great for stir-frying: thanks to their thickness, they’ll stay intact during cooking. Here, they soak up the deep, umami-rich flavors of miso, sesame and soy, contrasting wonderfully with refreshing spring pea tips and crunchy snap peas to make a hearty base for juicy, pan-seared chicken.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and finely chop the ginger. Snap off and discard the stem end of each snap pea; pull off and discard the tough string that runs the length of the pod. Cut the snap peas in half on an angle. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Roughly chop the pea tips. In a bowl, combine the miso paste, sesame oil, soy glaze and ¼ cup of water; whisk until smooth.

Coat & cook the chicken:
2 Coat & cook the chicken:

Place the flour on a plate. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. Thoroughly coat the seasoned chicken in the flour (tapping off any excess). In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the coated chicken and cook 4 to 6 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board, leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan.

Cook the snap peas:
3 Cook the snap peas:

Add 2 teaspoons of olive oil to the pan of reserved fond; heat on medium-high until hot. Add the ginger, snap peas and white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until fragrant and the snap peas are bright green. Add 2 tablespoons of water; cook, stirring frequently and scraping up any fond from the bottom of the pan, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until the water has cooked off.

Add the noodles:
4 Add the noodles:

To the pan of snap peas, add the noodles (carefully separating with your hands before adding), pea tips and miso-soy mixture. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until thoroughly combined and the pea tips have wilted. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.
