Soba Noodles with Chicken, Broccoli and Peas

We had very little in the house for lunch, and this is what I ended up throwing together. Really couldn’t have been easier, and was really satisfying.

For the noodle bowl:

1 sleeve soba noodles

2 small chicken thighs

salt and pepper

red pepper flakes

1/2 a bunch broccoli (between 1 and 1.5 cups)

1/4 cup frozen peas

1 tbsp coconut oil

For the dipping sauce:

chicken broth

mirin

sesame oil

soy sauce

Heat coconut oil in pan. Season chicken with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Cook in pan until cooked through.

While chicken is cooking, bring water to a boil and cook soba 5-6 minutes, or until cooked. During last minute or so of cooking, throw in peas and broccoli. Drain.

In a bowl, combine chicken broth and soy sauce (about 2:1 ratio) and add a spoonful of mirin. Stir and adjust seasoning (add more mirin for sweetness, soy sauce for saltiness, etc.). Top with a few drops of sesame oil.

Toss noodles and vegetables with most of the dipping sauce. Arrange sliced chicken on top – drizzle with remaining dipping sauce. I think some ginger would be good in the sauce, too.
