Happy Yak- Chicken Blanquette & Egg Noodles


A creamy bechamel sauce on a generous portion of egg noodles, topped with chunks of chicken and vegetables: mmm... savoury... With a hint of garlic, black peppercorns and a hint of garlic: divine! Some dishes deserve recognition on their own merits; this is one of them.


Some say a « blanquette » is a stew of white meat in white sauce, or « white stew», while others advocate that the term « blanquette» means « the sauce that coats the stew is white». Whatever the meaning, served with egg noodles and vegetables, the blanquette of chicken is a more than a meal, it’s a must.

Did you know?

In addition to being a stew, a blanquette is also a variety of small white pears, a kind of grape, and a type of white wine?

Didn't like it

This meal looks so good but as soon as I opened the package I could tell by the smell I wouldn't like it. I thought the flavour was terrible, some of the chicken pieces had a bit of gristle and the noodles were gummy. It took hours before I could get the taste out of my mouth. I followed the instructions exactly as it said. I would have given it a 1 but my son liked it and would have rated it at 3.5. I wouldn't buy it again.

Okay, just not my favorite

This had an excellent texture, plump chicken, and surprisingly enough salt. However, when I poured the water over it the smell was not something I enjoyed. Keep in mind I am a super picky person. My husband said it was fine and he would eat it again. When testing these meals I am always thinking could I eat this 3 meals a day? Also, I am comparing everything to my favorite one from this line Beef and rice with mandarins and almonds.
