This is so full of amino acids, lysine, antioxidants, protein, fiber and all sorts of other good stuff.  Besides being full of flavor, it is quick and easy to prepare; also, the dish itself is versatile enough to interchange with other veggies, meats or tofu!

Ingredients:

2 skinless/boneless white meat chicken breasts

Hoisin sauce (for chicken and broth)

2 tbsp Sesame Seeds (for broth and chicken

Olive Oil (to coat chicken)

Salt (to taste)

1 clove garlic minced

1 tsp ginger (for broth)

Organic Soba noodles

Asparagus or other mixed veggies (of choice)

(optional sriracha to taste for the broth)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 and begin preparing the chicken.  For serving 2 people, I only prepare 2 breasts or at least 8-12 oz. of meat.  To prepare, I lightly coat the chicken in olive oil and salt, and then tenderize.  After that, I coat with a hoisin, garlic, sesame seed mixture.  Place in oven for 20-30 minutes (white in the enter, no pink).

While that is going, I prepare the soba broth by mixing (to taste) hoisin, garlic, ginger, sesame, sriracha (optional) and salt.  Once I have it to taste, I bring it up to a boil and add the noodles.  I stir for around one minute before reducing the heat.  I let the noodles soak up the broth and begin on the veggies.

For this particular meal, I steamed the asparagus in a microwave steam bag to save time, but you can prepare all your veggies in your own way.

Once all the parts are complete, I assemble it all in a bowl (as pictured above); broth and noodles, cut up chicken and sliced asparagus top it all off.

If you come up with other fun ways to create this dish, I would love to hear about it!

Thanks and enjoy! ♥
