Needed a side with salmon with lime hoisin glaze. Used organic soba noodles. Added thin sliced baby carrots and edamame. Swapped chili garlic sauce for the crushed red pepper. This is an easy recipe and I can see it in many variations for sides and entrees.
Made this for dinner last night and we both LOVED it. I cubed boneless, skinless chicken thighs and stiry fried them, boiled the broccoli with angel hair pasta and dumped that into the wok with the chicken and the sauce. GREAT weeknight meal--comes together very quickly without a lot of prep work. Easy and yummy. Will make again!
I've made this one twice with different noodles and my family just doesn't care for it. It is easy to make and the first time I thought it was because I tried different noodles but not after the second time.
Delicious recipe that I've already made a few times. I loved the sauce. I used Anne Chung's Pad Thai brown rice noodles (cooked as directed), which really absorbed the sauce and let that flavor shine through. I also used tofu instead of chicken which worked really well. Other modifications were increasing the amount of broccoli and steaming it as well as cutting the sesame oil in half.
My family really enjoyed this recipe. I made it with angel hair instead of soba noodles. I also did not take the chicken out of the pan when it was done but instead added the sauce to the chicken and let it cook down a bit. This made for a nice creamy sauce. I then tossed in the noodles and broccoli. I think next time I will double the sauce.
Tip up front: check your soba package for cooking times rather than following recipe. Some soba takes only 4min (as ours), some takes 6 and if you overcook you'll be displeased. Made to recipe, quick & easy. We would have been happier with more veg but as-is this was an easy summer supper. Served pan-steamed dumplings & ponzu as appetizer.
