Asian Walnut, Chicken and Vegetable Noodle Jar

Meat, vegetables, noodles and seasonings are prepped ahead and transported in large canning jars. Add hot water just before serving for a fast desk side lunch. This recipe makes 2 jars for 2 lunches during the week.


  • 2 C. Thin Rice Noodles, lightly broken
  • 1/2 C. Matchstick Carrots
  • 1/2 C. Sliced Green Onions
  • 1 Medium Head Baby Bok Choy, sliced, about 2 cups
  • 2 Tbsp. Less Sodium Teriyaki Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. Ground Ginger
  • 3 Packets of Sodium-Free Granulated Chicken Buillon
  • 1 C. Cooked Chicken Breast, diced
  • 1/2 C. California Walnuts, toasted and coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 C. Fresh Cilantro Leaves, lightly packed
  • 2-1/2 C. Boiling Water
  • Sriracha sauce and additional low sodium teriyaki sauce (optional)


  1. Place equal amounts of rice noodles, carrots, green onions, bok choy, teriyaki sauce, ginger, bouillon, chicken, walnuts and cilantro into two 1-quart size canning jars, in that order.
  2. Pour 1-1/3 cups boiling water into each jar and screw on cover. Tip jar over several times to mix ingredients. Let stand for 5 minutes, shaking up and down occasionally to mix ingredients.
