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!
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)
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! ♥
