Soba noodles with spicy chicken and lemon oil

Lemon pepper soba noodles |

Noodles… They make me happy. And this dish is really simple to make. I used soba noodles that are made of buckwheat flour and therefore are glutenfree. Not the reason I used them but I just like the taste. Maybe they’re almost as good as my green tea noodles. The dish itself is pure simplicity really; the chicken is marinated really briefly in lemon pepper and a tablespoon soy sauce.

The dish could do with a bit more vegetables I have to say; this was just a quick dish with what I had leftover in the fridge, but you could easily add stirfried paksoi to it to give you more greens. O and to finish it off I added a splash of our own delicious lemon oil… (which we still haven’t figured out if it would be wise to sell in other countries as well…) of course you could use some lemon in olive oil for the same effect.
