Chicken Teriyaki Soba

Chicken is a great source of lean protein with a low fat content once you remove the skin. This recipe is a twist on the chicken noodle soup we are all familiar with. The wholegrain soba noodles have a lower GI than traditional egg noodles meaning you’ll get a slower release of energy after eating. The perfect lunch or dinner you can freeze this soup to have on hand when you’re stuck for time.
