I knew this recipe would be a stretch for all of us, especially the boys. But we're such a stir-fry happy family these days, I thought I'd take the risk. S ate nothing but noodles, N ate only chicken, the husband left behind large piles of edamame and cabbage. I ate it all and enjoyed it, but that's not really the goal, now is it? Maybe it will go over a bit better in your home?
from Martha Stewart
Coarse salt and ground pepper
8 ounces linguine, broken in half
2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (6 to 8 ounces each), cut crosswise into thin strips
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1/2 napa cabbage (about 1 pound), thinly shredded
2 cups frozen shelled edamame
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook noodles until al dente, according to package instructions. Drain and set aside.While pasta is cooking, in a medium bowl, toss chicken with cornstarch; season with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Cook chicken in two batches, until light brown on the outside and opaque throughout, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate (reserve skillet). Add remaining tablespoon oil to skillet; add onion and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until softened, 1 to 3 minutes. Add cabbage, and cook, stirring frequently, until tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Add edamame, vinegar, soy sauce, chicken, and noodles; season with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing, until noodles and edamame are warmed through, 3 to 5 minutes.
