Once, late in the evening, when I put the children to bed and my husband was on a business trip, I decided to watch a movie. I must say that I watch movies and read books, mostly related to food. I even find criminals where the action takes place, for example, during a culinary competition, or simple restaurant stories or just about food. And then I came across a film about a girl who worked in a small Chinese restaurant, the main advantage of which was noodle soup (ramen). And what do you think, the very next day we also had oriental noodles for lunch.
Teriyaki chicken with udon noodles
– 1-2 tbsp dark soy sauce
– 1 tbsp light honey
– 2.5 cm fresh ginger, finely grated
– a pinch of sugar
– 1 tbsp orange juice
– 4 chicken breasts
– 250g thick udon noodles
– 4 green spring onions
– 2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
Preheat oven to 200C. To make teriyaki sauce, mix soy sauce, honey, ginger, sugar, orange juice and mix well.
Pour washed and dried chicken breasts with this sauce. Marinate min. 1 hour.
Transfer the chicken and marinade to a baking dish and cook in the oven for approx. 25 minutes.
At this time, prepare the udon noodles: pour over boiling water and bring to a boil again. Cook for 3-4 minutes. Strain and stir with cilantro and finely chopped spring onions.
Serve the sliced breasts, on the cooked udon noodles, topped with the sauce.
