Costco in the Kitchen; Chicken Tenderloin Stir Fry

Do items at Costco interest you, but you just don't know what to do with them?  Do you buy them and end up throwing them away or just walk past them and wonder?
From our recent trip to Vegas;
Chinese New Year at Bellagio

I spotted these Asian noodles in the deli section and threw them in the cart.  The first few times I just tossed a little soy sauce on them and threw them in the microwave.  This is still the 10 year old's favorite way to eat them.

Here's a super easy recipe just in time
for a family Chinese New Year celebration. (you can get Chinese take out cartons at Michael's to make it even more like a party).

Chicken Tenderloin Stir-fry


Ingredients
  • 5 frozen chicken tenderloins thawed and sliced into small pieces
  • 3 cups frozen stir fry vegetable mix thawed (do not try to use these frozen because the broccoli will never cook)
  • 3 individual packs Japanese Udon noodles
  • 1 Tbs sesame oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • cilantro for garnish
Sauce:
  • 1 Tbs white wine vinegar
  • 1 heaping Tbs curry powder
  • 1/3 cup fish sauce (from the Asian aisle in the grocery store)
  • 1 Tbs ketchup
  • 1 Tbs soy sauce
  • 1 Tbs Sriricha chili sauce


Instructions
  • Mix the ingredients for the sauce in a medium sized bowl and set aside
  • Heat the sesame oil in a wok or skillet
  • Cook the chicken stirring frequently - about 4 minutes
  • Add the vegetables and cook until warm - about 4 minutes
  • Remove the chicken and veggies from the pan
  • Add just enough oil to lightly re-coat the pan
  • Add the Japanese noodles
  • Toss them in the pan until lightly brown - about 1 minute
  • Toss the sauce into the noodles in the pan until the noodles are coated and heat until the sauce is warm - about 1 minute
  • Add the chicken and veggies to the noodles and stir until coated
  • Serve

To change this recipe up

-use shrimp or beef instead of chicken
-save time by using a prepared stir-fry sauce instead of making your own
-toss sauce on chicken and veggies and serve on top of brown rice instead of the noodles

Items in this recipe from Costco:
frozen chicken tenderloins
frozen stir-fry veggies
Japanese noodles (refrigerated)
