Ingredients

  • 5 1/2 Cups low-sodium chicken stock
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
  • 2 Tablespoons mirin
  • 8 Ounces boneless chicken breast, cut into slivers
  • 4 medium-sized shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • One 9-ounce package dried or frozen udon noodles
  • 4 handfuls of baby or regular spinach, stemmed
  • 1 Tablespoon hot sesame oil
  • 2 scallions, julienned into 2-inch pieces, for garnish

Directions

In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the stock, soy sauce, and mirin and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer and add the chicken and shiitake mushrooms. Simmer until chicken is cooked through, for 4-5 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring a medium-sized pot of water to a boil. Add the noodles and cook according to the package directions. Drain and split evenly among 4 bowls.

Add the hot broth, chicken, mushrooms, and spinach to each bowl. Add the sesame oil and garnish with scallions. Serve immediately.

Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.

Chicken Wine Pairing

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
