Cool Soba with Citrus Chicken and Spinach

Refreshingly light and slightly sweet with a splash of sesame over soba—this is not your grandmother’s pasta dinner


  • Ready Time : 0 min




  • 1 pound soba noodles
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin slices
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 3 green onions, sliced
  • 1 can mandarin oranges, drained (11-ounce can)
  • 2 cups baby spinach, washed
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt


1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook noodles according to package directions. Drain well and set aside.

2. While noodles are cooking, heat olive oil in a medium sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the sliced chicken breasts and cook 5 minutes. Add orange juice and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook 5 to 8 minutes or until slightly reduced. Remove from heat and stir in zest and sesame oil.

3. In a large bowl, toss soba noodles with chicken and sauce, green onions, orange segments, spinach and salt. Refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

    Perhaps this is not the appropriate place but I would like to make a suggestion. It would be very helpful to say approximate weight of chicken, because chicken breasts come in different sizes. Where I buy, they are generally very large.
    So about how much (by weight) are YOU figuring for this recipe? It looks fantastic, by the way!
