Ingredients

  • 2 cups leftover chicken (can be rotisserie)
  • 1/2 (363 g) package soba noodles
  • 2 cups broccoli slaw
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 1/2 cup roasted salted peanut halves
  • Fresh chopped cilantro or basil (optional, to serve)

Satay Sauce

  • 1/2 can full fat coconut milk (about 3/4 cup)
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp dried ginger

Instructions

  • Cook soba noodles according to package directions (usually 2 min in boiling water) and whisk together the ingredients for the satay sauce. Add sauce to bottom of a 950mL mason jar, followed by leftover chicken.
  • If you need to cook the chicken fresh instead of using leftover chicken, saute four medium-sized chicken cutlets (or cut two medium-sized chicken breasts in half) in a skillet with a bit of olive oil over medium-high heat for 7-8 minutes per side, then cut up into bite-sized pieces. Otherwise, continue on with the following steps below.
  • After you add chicken, add broccoli slaw, red pepper and soba noodles. Top each jar with green onions and peanuts. Shake jars before serving to distribute sauce, then pour into a large, deep bowl and enjoy! Bonus: if you'd like, garnish with fresh herbs like cilantro or basil.

Notes

Layer your jars in this order: sauce, chicken, veggies, noodles, garnishes.
Swap out the soba noodles for vermicelli or ramen (although it will increase the calorie count).
Store these jars in the fridge for 4-5 days. Shake up the mason jar then dump it into a bowl.
Freeze the chicken for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight then reheat in the microwave or add it to your salad jars cold.
