With all the extra activities and parties that come with the season fixing dinner can be next to impossible some nights. Having a few quick and easy dinner ideas on hand can be a life saver.

Today’s recipe is one of those quick and easy recipes and also a kid favorite – chicken and noodles.

The chicken can be marinaded up to 24 hours ahead of time but if you are like I am, and usually forget, it is fine to throw it in the marinade while you are chopping up the carrots.

The night I made it I only added carrots and onions because that’s all I had but it would be great with some broccoli, snow peas or any other vegetable you might have in the refrigerator. And it would look a lot prettier with a little green added in!

I threw a handful of chopped cashews on top of mine because I like the texture and crunch it gives the dish but it’s not a necessity.

The yakisoba noodles are usually found in the produce section of the grocery store, near where the wonton wrappers and that type of thing is. They usually come vacuum sealed.
