“Your wok is waiting... From: Can sub shrimp for the chicken.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare soba noodles according to package directions; set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, blanch broccoli and peas (if using fresh) in boiling salty water for 3 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together sauce: hoisin, soy, sesame oil, rice vinegar and chili garlic paste; set aside.
  4. When broccoli and peas turn bright green from blanching, submerge in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. (This keeps veggies bright and crisp, not brown and mushy.) Note: If using frozen peas, simply thaw and skip this step.
  5. Next, heat oil over medium-high heat in a large wok or deep pan.
  6. Add cubed chicken breast and cook until browned, about 7-8 minutes; remove from pan and set aside.
  7. To the hot pan, add onion and cook 4 minutes.
  8. Stir in garlic, ginger and red pepper; cook additional 2 minutes.
  9. Add cooked broccoli, peas, mushrooms and reserved chicken breast.
  10. Pour in sauce and reserved noodles and cook for 2 minutes. Garnish with green onions.
