1 medium zucchini, chopped into 1 inch pieces
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
2-3 chicken breasts, chopped into 1 inch pieces
green onions, sliced
1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth, or water
4 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce (see note)
2 tablespoons fish sauce (or oyster sauce)
2 teaspoons sesame oil
4 teaspoons corn starch
1 tablespoon cold water
1 teaspoon sriracha sauce (hot chili sauce) OR 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Cook rice noodles according to package instructions, drain, and set aside.
Add zucchini, red pepper, and chicken to a greased pan or skillet. Stir periodically over medium heat 5-7 minutes until chicken is cooked through.
While veggies and chicken are cooking make the sauce. In a medium bowl stir combine chicken broth, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, fish sauce, sesame oil, and sriracha sauce. In a small bowl whisk together corn starch and cold water, then add to the medium bowl and stir together all sauce ingredients.
After chicken and veggies are cooked, add the noodles and green onions to the pan, then pour the sauce over the top. Stir to combine, then cover and simmer 5-10 minutes until thickened. Serve immediately.
