Asian Chicken Noodle Bowl
ASIAN CHICKEN NOODLE BOWL
Panera Bread Recipe
4 ounces buckwheat soba noodles
1 1/2 quarts low sodium chicken broth
12 ounces chicken tenders or boneless chicken breast
2 small carrots, sliced on a diagonal (about 1 cup)
8 ounces bok choy, trimmed, halved lengthwise, and sliced crosswise into thin strips
5 ounces fresh shiitake mushrooms, stems removed, caps thinly sliced
4 ounces snap peas, halved on a diagonal
2 scallions, trimmed, quartered, and sliced into thin strips
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the noodles and cook until just tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking.
Meanwhile, bring the broth to a boil in a soup pot over high heat; then reduce the heat to bring the boiling liquid to just under a simmer. Add the chicken and carrots and poach until the chicken is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Stir in the bok choy, shiitakes, snap peas, scallions, and soy sauce. Cook on low heat for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, cover, and let stand for 5 minutes.
Divide the noodles among four large soup bowls or deep pasta dishes. Divide the broth, chicken, and vegetables evenly over the noodles. Top with the cilantro and Sriracha (if using).
