Take out can really add up and put you over your weekly meal budget – and between working late, kids sports, and [life]…sometimes we need easy weekday hot dinner options – we think this is a good option to replace ordering food – there’s no prep time and it cooks in under 15 minutes.
The Kirkland Signature yakisoba stir fry kit contains fresh vegetables (broccoli, snap peas, bell peppers, onion and carrots), seasoned sous vide chicken, yakisoba noodles and two containers of yakisoba sauce.
Our Review of Chicken Yakisoba Stir Fry at Costco
Get it, you won’t regret it! The Costco Chicken Yakisoba Stir Fry meal kit is a convenient and easy weeknight meal, and my picky kid ate it too!! The sous vide chicken is cooked well and incredibly tender and flavorful – and I’m super picky about my chicken – which you probably know if you’ve read my other Costco food reviews.
Each meal kit package is about 3.5 lbs or $23 and it was enough for all four of us (2 adults/2 kids), plus leftovers for lunch for 2. I actually split one of the servings of leftovers and sent each kid with a small thermos with some hot leftovers and half a PB sandwich. So technically leftovers for 3 but depends how big of eaters you have – if you’ve got teens, this is probably 4 servings. If you’ve got toddlers, I think you can divvy this up before cooking and use it to make two meals.
If you haven’t had yakisoba noodles before, they are similar to a wheat pasta…a little firmer texture than a ramen noodle or glass noodle – generally speaking it’s quite comparable to spaghetti.
Although the Costco yakisoba stir fry kits are not cheap per say, as a take out alternative, we think it’s a good budget friendly alternative and is quick enough to make it after a late practice or day in the office. $23 shakes out to $4/serving (for my family, based on 6 meals) – much cheaper than take out – plus it cooks in under 15 minutes – and definitely healthier. The package seems to imply it should cook in 5 minutes but I think 10 – 15 more realistic – either way great weeknight hot meal when you don’t have time to cook.
You could also make your own sauce or use a different sauce if you prefer – the chicken tasted like it was cooked with soy sauce – and I think it would lend itself well to customization that would pair well with soy sauce. Maybe garlic and sriracha, or ??
Note: I would not recommend cooking this in the microwave!

Add Extra Veggies!
I had some mushrooms in my fridge that were on their last day so I sliced them up and tossed them in – they were delicious! Next time, I will add even more extra vegetables! Some ideas:
- Water Chestnuts
- Bamboo Shoots
- Bok Choy

The Costco Yakisoba Stir Fry Kits in the Deli section make a super easy weeknight hot meal - there's zero prep time and it cooks in under 15 minutes! The package states really quick cooking time - but I think it really takes longer so here's my recommended cooking directions for the stir fry kit at Costco!
- 1 Yakisoba Stir Fry Kit from Costco
- Cooking Oil (we used avocado oil)
- Add 2-3 teaspoons of cooking oil to a large skillet or dutch oven
- Over medium heat, saute fresh vegetables for 4 minutes (or about half way cooked)
- Turn heat to low, add chicken and stir
- Cover and cook on low for 5 minutes
- Add noodles and sauce (we used 1.5 containers of the sauce) and sautee all together on medium heat for about 3 minutes or until hot
The chicken and yakisoba noodles are fully cooked, and the veggies are raw/uncooked. Checking for an internal temp of 165 degrees fahrenheit is recommended.
