2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the soba noodles

Bring a medium sauce pot of water to a boil. Add the soba noodles and cook until just tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Wipe out the pot.
While the water heats and the soba noodles cook, prepare the chicken.


Prep and cook the chicken

Prep and cook instructions are identical for both chicken options.
  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the chicken and cook, turning once, until lightly browned and cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board to cool slightly. Add more oil between batches if needed. Cut the chicken crosswise into ½-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan.
While the chicken cooks and cools, start the sauce.


Make the soba noodle sauce

In the same pot used for the soba noodles, combine the tamari sauce base, kombu, mushrooms, and ¾ cup [1½ cups] water and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat, cover, and let stand, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are softened, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer the sauce to a medium heatproof bowl to cool slightly. Discard the kombu and transfer the mushrooms to a cutting board to cool slightly; discard the stems and thinly slice the mushroom caps. Set aside the soba noodle sauce for serving.
While the sauce heats and the mushrooms soak, prepare the remaining ingredients.


Prep the remaining ingredients; cook the peppers

  • Remove the stems from the shishito peppers.
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal for garnish.
In the same pan used for the chicken, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the peppers, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly charred, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat.


Transfer the soba noodles to individual bowls and top with the chicken, mushrooms, and peppers. Garnish with the scallions and spoon over as much soba noodle sauce as you like. Serve any remaining sauce on the side.
