Teriyaki Noodles

Decided to do some cooking experimenting the other day and it came out quite alright. The dish: TERIYAKI MACARONI and TERIYAKI SPAGHETTI.

This was lunch. Tried a recipe I found on the internet and it turned out too sweet. The recipe called for 3 tbsp of brown sugar to 2 cups of water. That's really toooo sweet. Threw in some chicken nuggets and black pepper sausages that were lying in my freezer. I believe most people would use chicken breasts for this type of dish. I guess you can use whatever suits your fancy. Me, I was just trying to finish up whatever food I had in the fridge :)

My Teriyaki Macaroni creation.

Modified the teriyaki sauce for dinner. Used spaghetti this time round. DH gave this a thumbs up. Much better and less sweet. No more chicken nuggets and sausages, so fried up some luncheon meat. Garnished with spring onions.

Here is the recipe for the sauce:


  • 1 clove garlic and 1-2 inches ginger. Crush or mince it.
  • Stir fry the garlic and ginger in oil until fragrant.
  • Pour in 2 tbsp sesame oil and stir fry a little more.
  • Add 3 cups of water
  • Add 6 tbsp of soy sauce
  • Add 3 tbsp of BBQ sauce
  • Add 1 tbsp of hoisin sauce
  • Add 4 tbsp of teriyaki sauce
  • Add 1 1/2 tbsp of brown sugar
  • Optional: Add 1 tbsp of honey
  • Taste to see if it is savory enough for your taste. If not, add some salt.
  • To thicken the sauce, add 3 tbsp of cornstarch.
If you cook 1 packet of spaghetti, this recipe will be enough. You may even have more than you need. Enjoy!
