Serves: 2
Ingredients
Marinade Sauce:
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp ginger powder or 1 tsp fresh and finely diced
  • chile flakes to taste
Additional Ingredients:
  • 1 large chicken breast, thinly sliced
  • sweet potato and buckwheat noodles, 250 gms or 3 bundles
  • 1.5 tbsp vegetable oil of choice
  • 1 cup wilted spinach (I used frozen, defrosted and squeezed out liquid)
Instructions
Marinade Instructions:
  1. Combine all of the marinade ingredients in a large bowl. Add the chicken slices, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Noodles:
  1. After the chicken has marinaded for 30 minutes start the noodles. Cook noodles according to package instructions. Mine were cooked in boiling water for 5-6 minutes. Then I drained them and rinsed under cold water. Set aside. Heat the oil, and cook the marinaded chicken -- do not discard the sauce, cook it too. Once the chicken has cooked through, about 8 minutes, add the spinach and cook a furter 3 minutes. Next add the cooked noodles, add a splash of soy sauce and cook until noodles are warm, about 2-3 minutes. Serve with desired side dishes.
Notes
Instead of buckwheat noodles you may use your favorite gluten-free, wheat or any other variety of choice.
