    found the recipe was quite oversalted… didnt know what do do so had to give it a little rinse, then my noodles became soggy. wouldnt do it again. it had too much ginger taste as well.

      Hi Evelino, I haven’t had that experience but we do add salt and pepper to taste in this recipe. It sounds like too much salt was added. Also, it can seem salty if the proportion of noodles was reduced compared to what was called for in the recipe. I hope that is helpful.

    Super quick and easy; perfect for a weeknight meal! I added some fish sauce to the sauce mixture and omitted the mushrooms (didn’t have any). I like others’ suggestions to add chili paste to give it s kick. As written, this is a great family meal (child friendly) and I personally didn’t think the ketchup was pronounced.

    It’s okay. I found the sauce was quite bland. I even added some heat to it. Not something I would make again.

      Hi Rose, if it seemed bland it could be due to using too much noodles which can quickly overwhelm the dish and make it seem bland.

    This is a good recipe, and wonderful for feeding many people on a budget. I doubled the sauce recipe because I like saucy noodles, and I like a bit of spice so in addition to a drizzle of sesame oil, I also added a small amount of Chili oil. Natasha, a number of my favourite go-to recipes are from you, thank you for another good one!

    We like a bit of spice, so we did 1/2 ketchup and 1/2 a sweet and spicy sauce. We did double the sauce, it was little too much sauce then, but I think the original amount may be a little short, so I will go 1.5 on the sauce next time. We used brown rice noodles for extra protein and added in celery and extra peppers and broccoli. My family went nuts for it. A new family favorite!

    Catch-up weirds me out a little bit, too. What about adding hoisin sauce in place of the catchup and a little bit of garlic. I think this would give any more Asian flair.

    Made this recipe tonight and it was good! After reading the reviews, I subbed Thai garlic chili sauce for the ketchup, which also added a nice bit of spice. I weighed out the 12oz of noodles and in my opinion it was just way too many noodles (to the point where I had to add 50% more sauce), and it made way more than 4 servings. It was really tasty but we’ll have leftovers for days!! Just be aware and add more sauce OR fewer noodles.

    This has got to be the best stir fry recipe I’ve ever tried! In the past, I have added every vegetable I have on hand. I was skeptical due to the few simple ingredients. Much to my surprise, I was able to identify each and every ingredient as I tasted it! Simple yet so very delicious. Thank you for this easy recipe. P. S I make it weekly!

    Any idea of how many carbs, if I don’t add the noodles? Can I use Xanthan Gum in place of corn starch? I’m diabetic and this looks so yummy! I just need to be able to cook it in a way that works for me. Thanks!

      Hi Cheryl, I do not have the nutrition facts for this recipe without noodles. This recipe uses 12 ounces of rice noodles, you might be able to find a close estimate with a quick google search of what 12ounce of rice noodles would be. Then subtract that from the total carbohydrates for this recipe. It serves 4. I hope that helps.

    For the people who said the recipe turned out bland and tasteless… I added some teriyaki sauce and some honey and it tasted AMAZING. Also instead of using ketchup, use tomato sauce. I will definitely make this meal again!

    Very bland Filling but tasteless.
    If using the directions again will add onion, garlic , beef up the ginger . Possibly a spiced rub on the chicken- cayenne,, thyme. Veg snow peas rather than z broccoli. With respect-

    It’s a Friday night, don’t want to cook & don’t have $ to drop on take out for 4 so I started searching for something different. I stumbled onto this site, read the recipe & alot of the comments & am SO glad I made this. My family LOVES this. I doubled the recipe for the sauce and veggies and made a large amount of rice noodles for tomorrow lunch leftovers. I added minced garlic & 1T of ground ginger – OMGosh! This was fantastic. As for those that said it wasn’t good and gave it crappy ratings, obviously you didn’t follow the directions or can’t cook, because this is damn delicious. Great recipe & new follower. Yay Natasha!!!

    Natasha usually has great recipes, but this is just horrible. I 100% followed all the instructions, used the exact same ingridients. The sauce is not even enough to cover quarter of the pasta. Now, I had to throw the whole thing out.
    Guys, try something else, Natasha has great meals on her website, just avoid this dish at all cost. haha

      Hi Cody, it sounds like maybe you used too much pasta? I have made this many times and haven’t had that experience but if using too much noodles (or overcooking noodles), it could seem like not enough sauce.

    I tried this recipe because of all of the positive reviews but I guess I should have read a few more.

    The ketchup was a bad idea…I knew it before I started and I regretted adding it as soon as I tasted it. It’s pretty much all I can taste in the sauce.

    I feel like this recipe would be great for kids to try something different that doesn’t have strong flavors to it. As a meal for myself and my fiancé, it was very bland and like I said before, all I could taste was the ketchup.

    The time it took to make this was awesome! Just wish the sauce was different and more flavorful. I am not an experienced enough cook to know what can be added instead of the ketchup but to me that ruined the dish.

    Fantastic recipe! We omitted the mushrooms, added more broccoli, and seasoned the chicken with salt, pepper, garlic salt, and cooked it with an absurd amount of garlic for a delicious garlic chicken. It went SO well with the sauce. This will definitely be a recipe we will make again and again.

    My husband and I liked this recipe. I did add carrots because we like more vegetables in our meals. I followed the recipe to a tee. I must say the ketchup (not a fan) through me off because it was a stir fry which
    reminds me immediately that it is asian, but I added it anyway. We like a little more spice to our meals, so I added sriracha at the end. Over all, it was a decent recipe.

    Instead of seasoning the one pound of raw chicken with salt and pepper, I recommend marinating it for 15 minutes in a mixture of 4 tsp Soy Sauce, 2 tsp Corn Starch, and ½ tsp Roasted Sesame Oil.
