Indonesian Chicken with Buckwheat Noodles

Jul 2, 2024 | Featured Articles, Main, Recipes

This flavoursome dish packs a punch, with a wealth of anti-inflammatory ingredients, including ginger, garlic and turmeric together with immune-supporting shitake mushrooms and coconut. Buckwheat noodles, also called soba, are a nutritious staple in Asian dishes. 

Place the lemongrass, coriander, onion, garlic, ginger, coconut sugar (or honey), tamari soy sauce, fish sauce, turmeric, garam masala and coconut milk in a blender and process until smooth. Pour over the chicken. Season with a little salt and pepper. Marinate for at least one hour. 

Heat the coconut or olive oil in a wok or frying pan. Drain the chicken, reserve the marinade and stir fry the chicken for 2-3 minutes. 

Add the chilli, pak choi, mangetout and mushrooms and cook for a further minute. Add the marinade and simmer for 10-15 minutes until the chicken is cooked. 

Once the chicken is cooked, toss in the noodles. Sprinkle over the bean sprouts and spring onions to serve.
