Green tea soba with Roast Chicken on a hot lazy day

15 Jan

Melbourne heatwave has finally started. This year summer has being kind so far. December was cooling and I like that weather. 

I have overheard at Woolworth yesterday that their roast chicken goes on special every Tuesday. I love tight arse Tuesday. For only 8 bucks, I got a big roast chicken that a bride-to-be should not finish all by herself. (Yip! I’m engaged and I need to fit into a wedding dress!)

And so… this is the dish that I have created. Perfect for a lazy evening after work and in this hot summer day.


A handful of Green tea soba


Mixed lettuce leaves


Deep roasted sesame dressing 

Some roast chicken (from Woolworth)

Sesame Oil (Korean)

Soy Sauce 

Roasted Sesame seeds for garnish

Preparation time: 15 mins

1) Cook the soba noodle like how you would cook pasta. Add soba noodle into boiling water and cook for a few minutes until it is slightly softer than al dente. (You don’t want mushy soba noodle)

2) Slice up cucumbers. Drizzle roasted sesame dressing over cucumbers, lettuce leaves and watercress to make salad. Set aside

3) Chop up or slice up roast chicken anyway you like

4) Plate salad, roast chicken and soba noodles
