“This was a quick and easy dinner for my wife and me. The recipe comes from the Sept. '07 issue of Health magazine.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make slaw, combine rice vinegar, sugar, kosher salt, and chili oil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Toss with coleslaw and orange slices; let the mixture sit 10-15 minute before serving. (If possible, make the slaw much earlier; it's better the longer it sits.
  2. Cook the soba noodles according to the package directions. Drain the noodles and rinse them under cold water.
  3. Combine panko, sesame seeds, and salt on a plate.
  4. Dip chicken breast tenders into the egg white. Dredge the chicken breast tenders in the panko-sesame seed mixture.
  5. Heat 1 tablespoons of the sesame oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breast tenders and cook 4-5 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Wipe out pan.
  6. Add the remaining sesame oil to the pan. Stir in the garlic and ginger; cook, stirring, 30-45 seconds until soft. Remove from heat and stir in the soy sauce, rice vinegar, and honey. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the sauce and toss the remaining with the soba noodles and scallions.
  7. Place chicken on top of soba noodles and drizzle with reserved sauce. Serve the slaw alongside.
