Sesame Soba Noodles with Chicken and Broccoli

As much as I would love to take credit for this delicious recipe- I can’t. I found this on Cooking Light and made some changes to add some spice and a little more flavoring. My obsession with Asian flavors only continues to grow each day. I truly believe that I could eat some form of peanut sauce every day of my life!

I know the ingredients list looks long but keep in mind you are making your own peanut sauce as well!

  • 1 (8-ounce) package broccoli florets
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves then chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
