Chicken and Broccoli Teriyaki with Noodles

This is such a great recipe, easy, filling, and fairly inexpensive. All 3 of my kids LOVED it, which is so great- one meal that everyone is happy with. I found it in my 2001 Cooking Light cookbook. I adapted it a little, so I'm posting it the way I made it. If you try it, let me know what you think!!

1 reg. foil oven bag (or aluminum foil) 1 pound chicken, cut into bite-size pieces
1/3 cup teriyaki sauce 1 cup chicken broth
1 T sugar 2 t cornstarch
2 packages chicken flavored ramen noodles 1/2 t oil
4 cups broccoli florets ( I steam these for about 5 minutes beforehand so they will be tender, not crunchy)
1 pkg. mushrooms, sliced 1 8 oz can water chestnuts, drained (optional)

Preheat oven to 475.
Place bag (or roll out foil) onto shallow baking dish. Combine teriyaki and sugar in a plastic bag, add chicken, and marinate for at least 2 hours. Remove chicken, reserve marinade. Combine reserved marinade, broth, cornstarch, oil, and 1 packet of flavoring from noodles. Stir well. Break each noodle package into 4 pieces. Place noodles in bag/aluminum foil. Pour broth mixture over noodles. Add broccoli, mushrooms, water chestnuts, and chicken (try and spread this out- the thinner your layers, the faster it cooks and the more tender it is) Seal bag, or cover w/ more aluminum foil and seal sides. Bake at 475 for 30 minutes. Great with bread and fruit salad!!

Sounds delish. Too bad RR doesn't like broccoli. That rules out so many dishes for us!

Amanda- you could easily make this w/out the broccoli (abby doesn't eat it either) or just put it on half and it wouldn't touch his part!!
