Ingredients

  • 1 8-ounce package soba noodles
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated ginger
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 7-ounce package mixed greens
  • 3 carrots, cut into matchstick-size strips or shredded
  • 1/4 sweet onion, thinly sliced

Preparation

  1. Cook the soba noodles according to the package directions and rinse under cold water.

    Cut the chicken into 1/4-inch-thick slices.

    Heat the soy sauce and brown sugar in a large skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, add the chicken and sauté until cooked through, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Transfer to a bowl and repeat with the remaining chicken.

    Sprinkle the sesame seeds over the chicken and toss to coat.

    In a small bowl, whisk together the ginger, vinegar, and oil. Divide the greens, carrots, and onion among individual plates. Top with the soba noodles and chicken. Serve with the vinaigrette.

    Tip: To toast sesame seeds, cook them in a dry skillet over moderate heat, stirring constantly, until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer them immediately to a cool plate.
