Sweet and Sour Chicken Breast with Soba Noodles

I did this with one nice sized chicken breast.

There are instructions for broiling the chicken for you guys who can't grill, but I grilled mine! I am making this with Soba noodles so I got some water boiling.

I have mentioned before but a zester is a handy tool. If you have a Microplane grater or even a box grater you can use that as well. Just be careful to not get any of the white part of the skin, just the fragrant and delicious yellow part.

Mix up your sauce.

I seasoned my chicken breast with salt and pepper and got it on the hot grill. Once you have it cooked on one side, I flip and start brushing with the sauce.

I got some Soba noodles last time I was at the Asian market, but you can find these in a lot of regular grocery stores also.

Into the pot they go and back out to my chicken I went. I flipped and kept basting with the sauce.

I drained the noodles and got some broccoli in the pot where the noodles were and got those heated through.

I threw the noodles in and tossed it all with some sesame oil and salt. I grabbed the chicken and let it rest for a minute on the counter.

And there you go! Grilled Sweet and Sour chicken with Soba Noodles and broccoli. It was delicious!!! The sauce on the chicken was really flavorful.

I couldn't eat the whole breast so I sliced it up and had it for lunch the next day with a little BBQ sauce on a Kaiser Roll. YUM. I hope you all have a great Super Bowl weekend!


  1. We are going to try this one also. I think you should have a program on the Food Network. I think I will clue them into your blog.

  2. How are you getting this done with all my dogs in tents in your house???
    My sweet husband posted a recipe on his blog:
    I feel like we "owe" you bigtime for all the yummy recipes, and this is a way to say thank you.


  3. I love making those sauces with honey, lemon etc.

    I have a recipe for chicken which is in my new Gordon Ramsay Fast Food Cook Book, it is very similar to yours, and so easy!

    I should not surf this blog while I am hungry......

  4. oh I know I should email you, and I will try to once this computer is more free (college son uses it a great deal for his work....) but I have never heard of a Kaiser Roll.

    It totally fascinates me all the different terms we have in the UK and in America.

    ;0) Your stuff sounds more exotic than ours!

  5. Thanks for your comments on my blog. I must admit I feel a little sad that you can't share the obvious great meals you prepare with your sig. other.

    I think of meals like my art, they are meant to be shared.

  6. If you liked the pasta recipe, next time soak the shrooms in the lemon juice for a few hours (or whatever time you have while preparing everything else), then throwing them in to cook at the end. A little cream or half and half with real parmesan cheese is great too.

  7. BTW, our dad is single if you want someone to spoil the broth with as you prepare meals...
