Ingredients (serves 4)

2 tablespoons peanut oil
1/4 cup mirin (see note)
1/4 cup salt-reduced soy sauce
2cm piece ginger, finely grated
2 garlic cloves, crushed
4 (180g each) chicken breast fillets, trimmed
200g soba noodles
steamed baby bok choy, to serve


Combine oil, mirin, soy sauce, ginger and garlic in a bowl. Place chicken in a shallow dish. Pour over 1/4 cup of the oil mixture. Set aside for 2 to 3 hours, if time permits.

Cook noodles in a saucepan of boiling water for 4 minutes or until tender. Drain. Rinse under cold water. Set aside.

Preheat a barbecue plate or chargrill over medium heat. Cook chicken for 5 to 6 minutes each side or until cooked through. Remove to a plate. Cover and rest for 5 minutes. Thinly slice.

Place noodles and bok choy on plates. Top with chicken. Drizzle with remaining oil mixture. Serve.


Mirin is a Japanese sweetened rice wine similar to sake, but used exclusively for cooking. You could use sweet sherry instead.
