Chicken and Vegetable Soba Noodle Stir-Fry

Soba noodles, which are made with buckwheat flour, are delicious hot or cold. In this dish, the chicken breast is sliced thinly, so a little goes a long way. If you find the chicken difficult to slice, try putting it in the freezer for 15 minutes to firm up a bit.
