During the holiday season, I like to have quick dinner options in my back pocket that take just a few minutes but also feature flavors that break up some of the classic fall or holiday flavors. This Chicken Meatball Noodle Stir Fry is a total breath of fresh air.

It’s ready in just a few minutes and has some bright and colorful veggies. You could use a store-bought sauce if you have one you like, but I just whipped up a quick stir-fry sauce to pour over my noodle stir-fry.I used Aidells Teriyaki & Pineapple Meatballs for my version. You can find these right in the refrigerated aisle, which most people don’t realize.  Aidells Sausage uses all-natural ingredients combined in delicious ways (Teriyaki & Pineapple?! YES PLEASE!)

This Chicken Meatball Noodle Stir Fry is a complete hit. It really shouldn’t be this easy and fast to make dinner this delicious.



  • 1 package 12 oz. Aidells Teriyaki and Pineapple Meatballs, quartered
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 ounces udon noodles, boiled
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 2 cups shredded green cabbage
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • Sesame seeds, garnish
  • Fresh scallions, garnish

Simple Stir-fry Sauce:

  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 lime, juice only


  • Cook Udon noodles according to package. Drain and rinse with cold water to prevent overcooking and sticking.  
  • Meanwhile, prep all your ingredients. Chop veggies, quarter meatballs, and whisk together sauce.
  • Heat a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and meatballs and stir-fry for a few minutes until they start to brown slightly.
  • Add red peppers, cabbage, and garlic and continue to cook for a few minutes until vegetables start to wilt. If the pan seems very dry or the vegetables start to stick, add a splash of water to the pan to loosen everything. 
  • Add cooked noodles and stir fry sauce and toss together to combine. Cook for another 30 seconds to warm the noodles and combine flavors. 
  • Divide stir fry between plates and garnish with sesame seeds and fresh scallions.

How to Make Meatball Noodle Stir Fry

I love these meatballs from Aidell’s. The Teriyaki & Pineapple flavor is the perfect combo of savory and sweet. They work really well in a stir fry like this! I like to quarter them for this recipe so they mix in better with the noodles and vegetables.

Love these!

The one key to making a good stir fry is to make sure all your ingredients are ready to go. Quarter your meatballs, chop all your veggies, and whisk your sauce (if you’re using it).

Chopped Veg for Chicken Noodle Stir Fry

This dish cooks really quickly once it hits the hot skillet and you don’t want to be going back and forth while it’s cooking.

Okay! Let’s cook!

Add some olive oil to your skillet or wok and once it’s hot, add the quartered meatballs and cook them for a few minutes until they start to brown a bit on the edges.

Then you can add all the vegetables!

These should wilt down pretty quickly if you have a hot pan. If the vegetables start to stick, add a splash of water to the wok to loosen everything.

Divide it between plates and serve it up immediately!

If you do have leftovers, it reheats okay. Reheat it gently in a skillet with a splash of water. The noodles might get a bit soggy, but it’ll still be pretty good!
