Monday's Soothing Chicken & Soba Noodle Bowls

This is an easy start to the week with a poached chicken dish that is a real crowd pleaser.  This recipe leaves plenty of chicken for use later and if you have a busy week ahead why not pod all your beans and store in the fridge ready for subsequent recipes.

Serves 4


Poached Chicken:

Soothing Chicken & Soba Noodle Bowls:


To Poach the Chicken:

  1. Place the chicken in a large pan cover with water add soy, 2 star anise and 5 slices of ginger. 
  2. Bring to the boil, cover & simmer for 45 minutes, then switch the heat off and allow the chicken to sit in the stock for 20/30 mins.

For the Chicken & Noodle Bowls:

  1. Remove the breasts from the poached chicken & keep warm.
  2. Pick the remaining meat from the bones and reserve for Thursday.  Return the carcass to the pan and rapidly boil to reduce the poaching liquid by half.
  3. Cook the noodles as per pack instructions. 
  4. Reserve half stock for Thursday & keep the remainder hot. 
  5. Drain the cooked noodles & share between the 4 bowls. Top with carrot, spring onions, radishes, beans & finally the chicken.  Ladle over the piping hot broth & scatter with sesame seeds, chilli & ginger.
