I love the colours of the broccoli slaw mix in this delicious Low Syn Yakitori Chicken and Noodles
I love yakitori chicken, it's delicious grilled pieces of tender chicken with a saltiness from the soy sauce or tamari and the sweetness from mirin and sake.
Although some are unique ingredients, this Yakitori Chicken and Noodles is pretty straight forward and easy to make. I have omitted the sake altogether to keep the syns down in this and just gone for some Mirin instead, but if you can not locate mirin, then just replace with additional maple syrup.
For the speed foods in this Yakitori Chicken and Noodles - I like to use broccoli slaw, it is basically just bags of shredded vegetables (broccoli, stalks, cabbage and carrots).
I always buy at least one bag a week as they are super handy to have for adding quick speed foods to things like stir fries etc. If you can't get the bags, just use any shredded veg of your choice.
Did you know broccoli stalks are a great one for shredding to add to stir fries etc and of course they are a speed food.
Make this Yakitori Chicken and Noodles, original or SP friendly, by using a vegetable spiralizer and using something like butternut squash or swede (rutabaga) spiralled and used in place of the noodles.
