Udon Noodles, Chicken, Courgetti & Mushrooms

Udon Noodles, Chicken, Courgetti & Mushrooms

Warming noodly yumminess – that’s all I can say really ūüôā

Of all the noodle varieties I particularly like Udon ones. I’m not sure really but for me just the right thickness and shape, they are soft and delicious!¬†Udon is a type of thick wheat flour noodle of Japanese cuisine.

These noodles together with Chicken, Courgetti and Mushrooms make the easiest, tastiest and quickest dinners going, for the whole family. All cooked onto of the oven on the hob its also quick! Try adding other ingredients such as sliced peppers, spring onions, anything you like. Please let me know what you do add.

So what are udon noodles – well according to wikipedia

Udon is a type of thick wheat flour noodle used frequently in Japanese cuisine. Udon is often served hot as a noodle soup in its simplest form, as kake udon, in a mildly flavoured broth called kakejiru, which is made of dashi, soy sauce, and mirin. It is usually topped with thinly chopped scallions. Wikipedia
