Chicken Soba Noodle Soup

Our family loves Asian cuisine, but what I really enjoy is having someone else make it for me.  Unfortunately, that doesn’t fit in the family budget, so slowly, I am trying to incorporate more meals with an ethnic flair. I think my favorite foods to order out are the Honey or Sesame Chicken, yes, both friend, but I really want to add the flair without all the fat.

This Skinny Chicken Soba Noodles Soup started out as another attempt to broaden our culinary palettes while staying within my Whole Foods/17 Day Diet menu, but turned into an adventure in shopping. Part of the problem with attempting to recreate a dish as authentically as possible when you aren’t used to new and diverse ingredients is that some of those ingredients might be tricky to find or you may not even know specifically what they are. 

For your little culinary lesson of the day, Bok Choy is Chinese cabbage and Soba noodles are thin Japanese noodles made from buckwheat flour. They are very delicious, but they may not be in every grocery store, so check any Asian Grocery Stores or one of my favorite home decor stores, World Market, stocks them. Honestly, feel free to substitute any thin noodles for the Soba Noodles. It will have a slightly different twist, but the flavor base will be the same.

Slowly, but surely, I will conquer this. 🙂
