  • Yield: Serves 4
  • Prep time: 30 Minutes


  • 1 qt. reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 quarter-size coins fresh ginger, smashed
  • 2 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 2 roasted duck breasts (from takeout), sliced or chopped, with bones and skin
  • 8 ounces fresh thick wheat udon noodles
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 cups roughly chopped bok choy
  • 2 teaspoons Asian (toasted) sesame oil


1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a medium saucepan, simmer broth, ginger, and garlic, covered, 15 minutes to develop flavor.

2. Meanwhile, set duck on a baking sheet and bake until warm. Using a slotted spoon, remove ginger and garlic from broth and discard. Add noodles and soy sauce and let simmer until warmed through, about 5 minutes. Add bok choy and let cook just until wilted, about 2 minutes. Ladle soup into 4 bowls and drizzle each with 1/2 tsp. sesame oil. Set a few pieces of duck on top of each bowl of soup.
