  • bone-in chicken breast
  • 1/4 Teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 3 Teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 Teaspoon diced shallot
  • 1 small clove garlic, diced
  • 2 Teaspoons ground ginger
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 3 Tablespoons coconut aminos

  • 1 cubanelle pepper, chopped
  • 1 Teaspoon lime juice
  • 1/4 Cup frozen peas
  • 1 small handful rice noodles
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place the chicken breast on it. Coat the chicken with 2 teaspoons of olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Bake the chicken for 35 minutes. Remove, cool and shred.

In a small sauce pan, heat 1 teaspoon of the oil over medium heat. Add the shallot and sauté for 2 minutes. Next add the garlic and shredded cooked chicken, stir well. Add the coconut aminios, chicken broth, cubanelle pepper, lime juice, and peas, and bring to a boil. Add the noodles and lower to medium heat until the noodles are cooked, about 5-7 minutes. Right before serving, add the green onions.

Asian Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Asian Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chili peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
