A delicious soothing chickeny and slippery noodley dish served with added herbs and spices for the grown-ups.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
80ml soy sauce
2 tablespoons mirin
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut in half
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
270g soba noodles

Ingredients for adults

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons pickled ginger, sliced
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 spring onion, thinly sliced
red chilli, chopped, to serve
small handful coriander leaves

Method

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the soy, mirin and rice vinegar. Add the chicken and mix with the marinade. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 15–20 minutes. (Even 10 will do.)
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan over a medium–high heat.
  3. Drain the chicken and reserve the marinade. Cook the chicken for about 4 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.
  4. Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions, then drain. Divide the noodles between four serving bowls.
  5. Bring the reserved marinade to the boil in a small saucepan and simmer over a medium heat for 2–3 minutes, or until thickened. Pour the sauce into a jug and keep warm until ready to serve.

Dish one

  • For the kids, keep the noodles plain. Top with some soy chicken and let the kids help themselves to the sauce.

Dish two

  • Add the pickled ginger, sesame oil, spring onion, chilli and coriander to the adults’ noodles. Top with the remaining soy chicken and serve with the sauce.
