Teriyaki Chicken with Chilli Citrus Noodles

Do you want to know something quite depressing?! Whenever I hear or see Teriyaki chicken I think of Subway, and if I’m honest, until I made this dish the only Teriyaki chicken I had eaten was at Subway. Before I went to Uni I worked in town and had a total addiction to Subway’s Teriyaki chicken, and I would always have it on Italian herb and cheese bread and with southwest sauce, plus all the extras. I have to say it has now been some time since I have had a Subway but this recipe was a great replacement; infact I would go as far to say it is way better better! So whether you want to eat this recipe in a sandwich or with these noodles, I promise you may never take a trip to Subway again (unless your favourite filling is meatballs that is).

  1. lol. I have to admit, I never tried Teriyaki at Subway because I couldn’t imagine that it would be any good. I do have a weakness for their meatballs but I can make meatballs just as good, if not better.

    Your teriyaki looks good and a little sesame seeds would be a nice addition too.
