  • 10 oz. linguini noodles, uncooked
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons oil Use a Vegetable oil or Light Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, chopped fine
  • 3 cups bagged vegetable blend (carrots, cabbage, greens) (buy the bagged shredded or chopped vegetables)


  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sesame oil


  • 3/4 lb. chicken breasts, sliced super thin
  • 3 teaspoons corn starch

  4. While noodles are cooking, drizzle oil in a wok or large skillet. Heat to medium-high. When skillet is hot add the minced garlic. Cook for 1 minute and then add the vegetables. Stir fry for about 3-4 minutes, adding more oil if necessary. Add a few shakes of soy sauce for flavor.

  5. Mix together the soy sauce, brown sugar and Sesame oil.
