soba noodles

mr. roundy made this the other night and I absolutely loved it!  We did substitute the red currant jelly for an apricot jelly we had on hand.  I felt the swap worked well and don't know if we will even try it with red currant.  Let me know if you try it.… and enjoy!


real simple

{sweet and spicy chicken with soba noodles}


ingredients

6 ounces soba noodles
4 heads baby bok choy, sliced crosswise into strips
1 small red bell pepper, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1/2 to 1 teaspoon Sriracha or other Asian chili sauce
kosher salt
1/2 cup red currant jelly
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger {don't skip this ingredient, its amazing}
4 6-ounce boneless skinless chicken breasts

steps
1. Cook the noodles according to the package directions, adding the bok choy during the last minute of cooking. Drain and run under cold water to cool.
2. Transfer the noodles and bok choy to a large bowl. Add the bell pepper, oil, vinegar, Sriracha, 1/4 teaspoon salt and toss to combine.
3.  Meanwhile, heat broiler. In a small bowl, combine the jelly, ketchup and ginger.
4.  Place the chicken on a broiler proof baking sheet lined with foil. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt.
5.  Broil the chicken until cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side, brushing with the jelly mixture twice during the last 3 minutes. Serve with noodles.
