Thanks To Camille  for this Thrifty Light recipe:

I just wanted to submit my favorite light and inexpensive dinner idea.  I call these Teriyaki Noodle Bowls, and you can really load on the veggies.

Husband Rating: 4 stars

2 chicken breasts
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp. Teriyaki sauce
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup onions, sliced
2 carrots, slivered
1/4 cup green pepper, sliced
Your choice additional vegetables like: mushrooms, zucchini, squash or broccoli
2 pkgs. ramen noodles (use just the noodles, not the spice packet)

Marinate chicken for at least 20 minutes in 1/4 cup of teriyaki sauce. Slice chicken into long, thin strips. Drizzle a small amount of olive oil into a skillet over medium heat. Add chicken, garlic, onions, carrots, green pepper and other veggies. Cook and stir until chicken is no longer pink and veggies are tender, about 7 minutes. Cook noodles according to package directions. Place noodles in a bowl and cover with teriyaki chicken and vegetables. Serve with additional teriyaki sauce if needed.

Note:  My husband hates ramen so I cooked up some quick angel hair pasta for his bowl.  You can always get pasta free or almost free at Albertsons!  For grilled teriyaki chicken instructions and more great recipes visit my blog at
