hoisin chicken udon noodles

As I hinted at yesterday, I was cleaning out the freezer.  I also did the fridge and pantry and found a bottle of hoisin sauce (a sauce native to southern Chinese cuisine).  I went online to find some recipes, and I stumbled upon this gem.  It was quick, easy, healthy, and completely addicting.  Both The Hubby and I literally fought over who would take the leftovers.  We ended up compromising and splitting the last bit.  I have made it twice since with the same result.

I love it when a recipe comes together this easily (with little to no modifications), and I am even more excited to blog and share it with you lovely readers!  Have you encountered recipes like this?
