Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 450 g boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 teaspoons hoisin sauce
  • 170 g rice stick noodles (1/4-inch/5 mm wide)
  • 8 thin slices fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic thinly sliced
  • 2 fresh cilantro with roots
  • 1/4 teaspoon five-spice powder
  • 1 pkg (900 ml) sodium-reduced chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon sodium-reduced soy sauce
  • 6 heads bok choy trimmed (root ends attached) and halved
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

Method

In large nonstick skillet, heat half of the vegetable oil over medium-high heat; cook chicken, turning once, until browned all over, about 8 minutes.

Transfer chicken to parchment paper– lined baking sheet; brush with hoisin sauce. Roast in 400°F (200°C) oven until no longer pink inside, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool enough to handle; thinly slice and set aside.

Cook noodles according to package instructions; drain and set aside.

Meanwhile, in large saucepan, heat remaining vegetable oil over medium heat; cook ginger, garlic, cilantro stems and five-spice powder, stirring, for 1 minute.

Add broth, soy sauce and 2 cups water; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Using slotted spoon, discard ginger, garlic and cilantro stems. Stir in bok choy; simmer until softened, 2 to 4 minutes.

To serve, divide noodles, bok choy, broth mixture and chicken among 4 bowls. Sprinkle with green onions and chopped cilantro; drizzle with sesame oil.
