Recipe adapted from Cooking Light, June 2012

1 pkg. soba noodles
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-in. cubes
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. dark toasted sesame oil
2 c. broccoli florets
2 large carrots, sliced
1 c. frozen shelled edamame
2 tsp. minced garlic
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 small yellow onion, diced
1 c. dry-roasted cashews
2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
4 Tbsp. honey
3 Tbsp. soy sauce
1/2 Tbsp. Sriracha sauce

Instructions:

Cook soba noodles according to package directions.

Combine chicken, cornstarch, salt, and pepper. Stir to coat.

In a large skillet, heat olive oil and sesame oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken mixture and saute for 4 minutes or until lightly browned. Increase heat to high and add broccoli, carrots, edamame, garlic, pepper, and onion. Cook for about 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender-crisp and chicken is cooked through, stirring frequently. Add in cashews and stir.

In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, honey, soy sauce, and Sriracha sauce. Add to chicken mixture and toss to coat. Serve over noodles.

Husband Rating: 9.5 out of 10

Food for Thought: The original recipe called for twice as much Sriracha sauce.  I halved in for the boys but definitely think the heat would be tasty for those of you out there that like a little kick.
