Satay Udon Noodles  


Satay udon noodles combine the nutty, creamy taste of satay sauce with the chewy texture of udon noodles, creating a delightful and satisfying meal. Originating from Indonesia and Malaysia, satay sauce is traditionally made from peanuts and spices, often served with skewered meats. Udon is a type of thick wheat noodle from Japan, known for its chewy texture and often used in soups or stir-fries. Mixed together, the Satay Udon Noodles blend the rich and nutty flavours of Southeast Asia with the comforting texture of Japanese udon.

This dish is relatively quick to prepare, making it a perfect choice for a tasty and hassle-free weeknight dinner.

Satay Udon Noodles

Even I was surprised at just how quick this dish was to cook; no sooner had I started the dish, than it was on my plate and being scoffed. Washing up consisted of my wok and the wooden spoon I used. Chewy noodles, juicy chicken, crunchy onions and peppers smothered in a rich spicy satay sauce. Lovely!

  • 300 g Straight to Wok Udon Noodles
  • 2 Chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 Medium white onion cut into strips

  • Season with 1 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper then stir in the satay sauce along with 1 cup of water.
