Soba, thin Japanese noodles, have a nutty flavor and delicate texture. They blend well with the cilantro and ginger in this chicken dish.

Cook's Notes

The noodles marked "100% buckwheat" are gluten-free and the buckwheat is a strong addition to a healthy diet: It can reduce the risk of high blood pressure and improve cholesterol and blood-sugar levels.

This was delicious. I cut up the chicken after cooking and put it on top of the soba noodles. REALLY good. Leftovers even tasted great cold from the fridge - like a pasta salad.
