  1. That looks delicious! My husband is part Asian and love asian food but I’ve never made much of it. But this looks pretty user friendly. I’m assuming stir fry sauce would be next to the soy and hoisin sauces?

  2. I’ve thought about freezing asian food too. Do you find that the noodles keep their texture after being frozen and thawed?

    1. Yes, the noodles should be fine. You can also freeze the chicken, vegetables and sauce, and add fresh noodles on the cooking day.

  3. This recipe was pretty easy but my noodles were very mushy after freezing them. I like the idea of this recipe a lot but I’m going to try using a spaghetti noodle instead.

    1. Brittany, I changed the freezing directions to freeze the cooked noodles separate from the sauce, then adding them at the end of warming the chicken on serving day. That should keep the noodles from becoming soggy. Or, you could just skip that step on cooking day and cook the noodles on serving day.

  4. My husband is not a fan of chicken ( I know– who doesn’t like chicken?!?), could I substitute shrimp? Anyone ever tried that version? Just curious if it would freeze as well and if I could use the same ingredients. Thanks for your help!
