  1. Make stir-fry sauce - Combine brown sugar, miso, vinegar, toasted sesame oil and soy sauce. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Carrots - Chop carrots. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  3. Rotisserie chicken - (Skip if this was done ahead on Tuesday.) Take meat off the bone and slice with a knife. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
  4. Limes / Green onions - Prep as directed. Store limes, green parts of green onions and white parts of green onions separately. (Can be done 1 day ahead)


  1. Bring a saucepan of water to boil. Add soba noodles and cook according to packaged instructions. (Soba noodles don’t take long to cook, so keep an eye out.) Drain.
  2. Whisk together cornstarch and water.
  3. When noodles are nearly finished cooking, heat a wok over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil and then carrots. Saute until carrots are nearly tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Add coleslaw mix and white parts of green onions and saute for 2 minutes more.
  4. Pour stir-fry sauce over top and bring to a simmer. Add corn starch / water mixture, while stirring. Simmer until sauce has thickened slightly, ~2 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat and stir in soba noodles and juice from one of the lime wedges. Add rotisserie chicken slices on top.
  6. Serve chicken soba noodles with green parts of green onions on top and lime wedges and hot sauce on the side to use as garnishes. Enjoy!

Loved this! We loaded up on veggies - threw in a whole package of this kale coleslaw mix from the grocery store and some chopped up spinach. Would probably add more toasted sesame seed oil/less soy sauce next time but over all really enjoyed it and came together quickly!

The soy sauce is heavy. I may dim it down some next time otherwise it's a good dish. Needs something nutty also.

My family said "yummy" and the kids wanted it in their lunches for the next day. The chicken could be tossed with a little of the stir fry sauce, just a little dry.
