Soba Noodles with Chicken and Vegetables

Pin It

Now don't tell anyone, but the inspiration for this did come from the Rachel Ray Magazine. I know what you are thinking, but my friends get me subscriptions, I have never in my life paid for an issue. But it is a guilty pleasure, and sometimes when Rach is not busy calling soup "stoup" or olive oil "EVOO", she has some good ideas. Even my husband will read the magazine, just don't ask him to admit it.

I really like napa cabbage, especially in stir fry., and decided to go for it. I adjusted the recipe, adding chicken, bean sprouts and omitting a few things I can't even recall.

Soba Noodles with Chicken and Vegetables
Serves 2
4 oz of soba noodles
2 small chicken breasts, sliced into thin strips
1/2 head of napa cabbage, shredded
1 cup of edamame
3 garlic cloves, chopped fine
1 cup of bean sprouts
4 stalks of green onion, cut into 1 inch pieces
hoisin sauce
soy sauce
grated ginger
salt and pepper
vegetable oil
mint leaves, a handful

1) Cook soba noodles, drain and set aside
2) In the meantime, cook the chicken in some vegetable oil, until no longer pink, and set aside.
3) To the same pan, add napa cabbage and edamame. Cook until cabbage begins to wilt, add soy sauce and hoisin sauce to taste, a few tablespoons each. Add garlic, and ginger.
4) In the last few minutes, add noodles, chicken, sprouts, green onion and mint. Cook for 3 or so minutes, add additional hoisin sauce and season with salt and pepper.

It's a pretty simple, healthy meal. At first you feel nice and healthy. But then you want snacks. So don't have snacks around. Or drink plenty of water to fill yourself up, then you can feel healthy all night long.

  1. EVOO!!!! LOL, RRay makes me laugh. She's like trying so hard to make her little things "in". Is it just me or does she sound like she spent most of the day screaming at her cat to get off the couch??
