I omitted the carrot, chicken & peanuts and made this as a side dish, but I will definitely make it as listed, as a main dish, soon!

Prep. Time:    

1 carrot -- peeled
1/3 cup reduced-fat peanut butter
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon chopped peeled fresh ginger
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper -- (1 to 2)
1 garlic clove -- minced
1 can  fat-free -- (16-ounce) less-sodium chicken broth --
1 pound skinned and boned chicken breasts
5 cups cooked soba (buckwheat noodles) (SEE NOTES)
6 tablespoons sliced green onions
6 tablespoons chopped unsalted -- dry-roasted peanuts
  1. Shave carrot lengthwise into thin strips using a vegetable peeler; set aside.

  2. Combine the peanut butter, honey, ginger, soy sauce, pepper, garlic, and 1/3 cup chicken broth in a small bowl; stir with a whisk until smooth.

  3. Place chicken in a large saucepan; add 1-2/3 cups broth. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 4 minutes or until done. Remove from heat; let stand 20 minutes. Drain, and cut chicken into 2-inch pieces. Combine carrot, peanut sauce, chicken, and noodles in a large bowl; toss to coat. Sprinkle with onions and peanuts.

  4. Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 cup).

  5. Poster Notes: I often make this to accompany the Garlic Sesame Pork tenderloin (crockpot), but leave out the chicken. I seldom, if ever, have soba noodles in the house, so I use fettuccini or those noodles for asian soup you can get in the produce section of the grocery store. Also, I omit the shredded carrot and peanuts. I really hope you like these dishes as much as we do!

  6. Stacy's Notes - made this for the first time May 2005. I tried the Garlic Sesame Pork Tenderloin in the crockpot, and this recipe (minus the carrots, chicken and peanuts) as a side dish to that. I used a package of the noodles from the produce section (brand name Azumaya, thin-cut) instead of soba noodles, reduced fat Jif peanut butter, ginger from the bottle I keep on hand in the fridge, scant 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper, 2 chopped green onions and everything else the same. (I used about 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper, but if I was making this for me and not Tim, I would use less. It was a bit on the warm side, not hot, but flavorful.) I think we actually liked these noodles better than the pork tenderloin in the crockpot! Definitely make these again like this as a side dish, and try in the future as a main dish with the chicken, carrots and peanuts (and maybe add a bit of broccoli or snow peas too).
