Spicy Chicken Broccoli Noodles

Spicy chicken broccoli noodles is an easy, healthy weeknight dinner.

I turn to stir-fry recipes a lot when planning my weekday meals. They are quick and often made in one skillet. Mine are always full of vegetables along with protein for a complete meal.

Plus, these are another excuse to eat soba noodles. We love these. They taste great and are so convenient. Peanut chicken sheet pan dinner with soba noodles is one of our all-time favorite dinners.


Soy Sauce: I always use low sodium to control the amount of salt.

Chicken Stock: Stock is the base of the sauce. I like a low-sodium variety.

Honey: Adds a little sweetness to the sauce to balance out the spicy flavors.

Sriracha Sauce: Sriracha is the main source of heat in the sauce. Add a little for mild heat and a good dollop if you like it spicy.

Sweet Chili Sauce: This sauce is a wonderfully sticky mix of sweet and spicy. You can find it in the Asian section of grocery stores.

Lime Juice: The tart acidic flavor of lime goes nicely with the sweet and spicy ingredients in the sauce.

Cornstarch: Thickens the sauce.

Canola Oil: Used to stir-fry the chicken and veggies.

Chicken Breast: Boneless, skinless chicken breast is found in many of our stir-fry meals.

Broccoli: A healthy, green veggie that also happens to be delicious. What’s not to love? 😉

Ripe Bell Peppers: Peppers add flavor and color to the dish.

Garlic: Adds distinctive flavor to the sauce. I like to grate both the garlic and the ginger into the sauce.

Ginger: I love fresh ginger. It adds a bright pop of flavor to stir-fry recipes and has health benefits! Ground ginger would work too.

Soba Noodles: Soba noodles are found in the Asian section of the grocery store. You can also use a rice noodle or a long pasta like linguine or spaghetti.


Start by making the sauce. Add the soy sauce, stock, honey, sriracha, sweet chili sauce, lime juice, and cornstarch to a bowl or small measuring cup. Combine until the cornstarch is incorporated using a spoon or a whisk. I like to add the grated garlic and ginger straight into the sauce.

Heat a large skillet or wok and add the chicken. Once the chicken gets going you can add the broccoli and peppers if you prefer them very tender. If you like a little crispness to the veggies, wait until the chicken is mostly done before you add the vegetables to the skillet.

Add the sauce and stir to coat the chicken and vegetables. The sauce will thicken thanks to cornstarch. Stir until the sauce is thickened and heated through.

Plate your spicy chicken broccoli noodles and enjoy!

  • 2 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • 1 package soba noodles (or two servings of pasta or rice noodles)


  • Make sauce: In a medium bowl, whisk together soy sauce, chicken stock, honey, sriracha, sweet chili sauce, lime juice, and corn starch. I also like to add the grated ginger and garlic. Alternatively, you can add it to the skillet right before you add the sauce.
  • If you are cooking your noodles, add water to a large pot over medium to high heat.
  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken to hot skillet. Sauté until brown on all sides and mostly cooked through, about 6-8 minutes.
  • Add your noodles to the boiling water and cook at package ingredients.
  • Add broccoli and bell pepper with chicken until the broccoli begins to turn bright green and tender about 5-7 minutes. If you didn’t add garlic and ginger to the sauce, add it now.
  • Add the sauce and bring to simmer. Reduce the sauce slightly and simmer until the chicken is completely cooked through and the broccoli tender.
  • Serve immediately.
