Spicy Soba Noodles with Chicken in Peanut Sauce is a quick and easy chicken dish that you can prepare in no time at all! I don’t know about you, but during the week I am so busy trying to fit in training for the mini-marathon in May, work and keeping the family together, that I do not have time to fix a time-consuming meal. This quick, easy and delicious dish comes from Cooking Light. Soba noodles are tossed with chicken, crunchy carrots, and a fiery peanut sauce.
Spicy Soba Noodles with Chicken in Peanut Sauce
- 1 carrot, peeled
- 2 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth, divided
- 1/3 cup reduced-fat peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon chopped peeled fresh ginger
- 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 to 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast
- 5 cups cooked soba (about 10 ounces uncooked buckwheat noodles)
- 6 tablespoons sliced green onions
- 6 tablespoons chopped unsalted, dry-roasted peanuts
- Shave carrot lengthwise into thin strips using a vegetable peeler; set aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk together 1/3 cup broth, peanut butter, ginger, soy sauce, honey, pepper, and garlic; whisk until smooth; set aside.
- Place chicken in a large saucepan and add 1 2/3 cups broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 4 minutes or until chicken is done. Remove from heat; let stand 20 minutes. Drain; cut chicken into 2-inch pieces and place into peanut butter mixture. Add carrot and cooked noodles; toss to coat. Sprinkle with green onions and peanuts.
