Spicy Soba Noodles with Chicken in Peanut Sauce

Monday Night Football was started off with some Spicy Soba Noodles with Chicken in Peanut Sauce.  It tasted really good and was surprisingly easy to make. Soba noodles are buckwheat noodles and are a bit darker in color.  To make this dish, I boiled chicken pieces in chicken broth (low sodium, fat free) and let it simmer for about 4 minutes and then another 20 minutes removed from heat.  The spicy peanut sauce is a combination of chicken broth, peanut butter, ginger, soy sauce, honey, crushed red pepper, and garlic.  I added some veggies to the meal also (carrots, broccoli, red peppers, and scallions).

For those who don't know, Soba is traditionally eaten on New Years Eve in most areas of Japan, a tradition that is still practiced today called Toshikoshi soba.

You can add dry-roasted peanuts to this meal too!
