Use chicken broth in place of the sake for a nonalcoholic version. Toasted sesame seeds sprinkled over the finished dish make a flavorful garnish.
6 ounces uncooked soba (buckwheat noodles) I used linguini to avoid the whole wheat 1/4 cup sake (rice wine) or dry sherry 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce 2 tablespoons rice vinegar 1 teaspoon honey 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, divided 3/4 pound chicken breast tenders, cut into bite-sized pieces 1 1/2 teaspoons dark sesame oil I left out ALL oil 3 cups quartered mushrooms 3 cups broccoli florets 1 cup (1-inch) red bell pepper strips 1 tablespoon bottled ground fresh ginger (such as Spice World) 2 garlic cloves, minced
Cook noodles according to package directions; drain. Combine sake and the next 4 ingredients (sake through crushed red pepper) in a small bowl; set aside.
Heat 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; stir-fry 4 minutes or until done. Remove chicken from pan; keep warm. Heat 1 teaspoon vegetable oil and sesame oil in pan over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and remaining ingredients; stir-fry 4 minutes or until broccoli is crisp-tender. Return chicken to pan; stir in sake mixture. Cook 1 minute or until thoroughly heated. Serve over noodles.
Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 1/4 cups chicken mixture and 1/2 cup noodles)
