Soba with Soy Honey Drizzle and ChickenPosted: March 16, 2012
Some days all I want to do is stuff my face with noodles. There are many reasons that provoke such a reaction in me. Like yesterday, when I had a splitting headache and cramps ALL DAY LONG.
Thanks for nothing Advil. While noodles may not be scientifically proven to lessen bodily aches and pains, they’re still a mighty wonderful distraction.
Noodles are a great food. Slurpable, slightly chewy and soft, and they come in so many varieties. I do love soba and udon. I also adore rice noodles and egg noodles. Have you ever had sweet potato starch noodles? Delicious.
My favorite chopsticks.
Broth, no broth; sauce, no sauce (well let’s be honest, I’ll always put a little soy sauce and sesame oil on my noodles.)
This is a great weeknight dinner that comes together super fast, and with the addition of pre-cooked shredded chicken, is a very filling meal, especially for the noodles lovers out there.
Soba with Soy Honey Drizzle and Chicken
Adapted from T and T Cake
Makes 2-3 servings
8 oz soba noodles, cooked
3 Tbsps water
5 Tbsps soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar or mirin
1 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsps honey
1 cup chicken, cooked and shredded
sesame seeds for garnish
Cook the noodles according to their packaging’s instructions. While the noodles are cooking, mix together water through honey in a small bowl and stir until honey and sugar have dissolved.
When the noodles are done, strain them and apportion them. Drizzle the soy sauce mixture evenly over the noodles. Toss noodles and add chicken if using. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, chopped scallion or chives, and enjoy!
