  • 1 package (17 ounces) fresh yakisoba noodles
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced thinly into strips
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 onion, peeled and sliced thinly
  • 1/2 head cabbage, chopped
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and julienned

For the Yakisoba Sauce

  • 4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons sugar


  • Rinse yakisoba noodles in hot water according to package's directions. 
  • In a teppan grill or a wide skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil.
  • Add chicken and cook, stirring regularly, until it begins to change color.
  • Add carrots and cook for about 10 to 15 seconds.
  • Add cabbage and continue to cook, stirring regularly, until vegetables are tender-crisp.
  • Add noodles and yakisoba sauce. Gently stir until noodles are evenly coated with sauce and vegetables and meat are well distributed.
  • Continue to cook, gently tossing together, until noodles are heated through and sauce begins to caramelize. 
  • Transfer to serving plates and garnish with red pickled ginger and dried green seaweed. Serve hot.

For the Yakisoba Sauce

  • In a small combine, combine Worcestershire sauce, oyster sauce, ketchup, soy sauce, and sugar. Stir until well combined and sugar is dissolved.


  • The brand of fresh noodles I buy recommends loosening the noodles by warming in the microwave for about 1 minute or rinsing briefly in hot water. Please check your noodle package for directions.
  • Yakisoba noodles usually come with their special sauce. You can use that or make your own following the recipe below. If you can't find fresh yakisoba noodles, substitute ramen noodles.
