SWEET SESAME NOODLES
With kids back in school and the hustle and bustle of everyone's schedules, I thought it would be a good idea to add a recipe that is a snap to put together. I love to find recipes that are quick and easy and this one fits the bill! It took about a half hour to prepare, and it was very flavorful! Don't be intimidated by the number of ingredients - it's mostly the sauce. Also, you can substitute angel hair pasta or rice noodles for the soba. And, the good news is, this is a Cooking Light recipe!
1 (8-ounce) package uncooked soba (buckwheat noodles - available in Asian aisle)
1 (8-ounce) package broccoli florets
2 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons dark sesame oil
2 tablespoons lower-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds, divided
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
3 green onions, chopped
1. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add soba; cook 3 minutes. Add broccoli to pan; cook 3 minutes or until soba and broccoli are done. Drain.
2. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle chicken evenly with salt and pepper. Add chicken to pan; grill 6 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from pan. Cut into 1-inch pieces.
3. Combine vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, peanut butter, 1 teaspoon sesame seeds, sugar, crushed red pepper, and garlic in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Stir in noodle mixture and chicken. Sprinkle with remaining 1 teaspoon sesame seeds and green onions.
