    [Microwave Cooked Chicken Breast Strips and Summer-Veggie Topping]

  • 1 piece Chicken Breast Strip
  • Some Salt and Sake
  • 1/4 Cucumber
  • 2~3 Cherry Tomatoes
  • Some White Sesame Seeds
  • [Plum and Shiso Flavored Topping]

  • 2 Pickled Plums (ume-boshi)

  • Some Dried Bonito Flakes
  • [Okra and Fermented Soybeans (Natto) Topping]
  • 5 pods Okra
  • 1 small package Fermented Soybeans (coarsely-ground natto)
  • Some Long Green Onions

Cooking Procedures:

Microwave to Steam the chicken breast strip:
Place the chicken breast strip on a sheet of plastic food wrap and drizzle the salt and sake on it. Wrap the chicken softly in the wrap, and microwave it. After cooling the chicken, tear it into bite-size pieces. Slice the cucumber thinly, and cut the cherry tomatoes into rounds.

Prepare the plum and shiso flavored topping and okra and fermented soybeans (natto) topping:
Slice the green shiso parsley leaves thinly, and soak them in water. Boil the okra, and slice them into rounds. Then, tap the okra rounds with the knife blade to make them slightly sticky. Chop the long green onion.

Cook the somen noodles:
Boil a pot of water, and put the somen noodles in the pot (distribute the noodles well). After the noodles come to a boil again, add some water to adjust the water volume and continue boiling the noodles for a while (see the product’s cooking instructions). Drain the noodles with a strainer and rinse them several times using chilled water. Then, drain the noodles and place them onto the strainer.

Arrange the noodles and the toppings onto bowls and pour the tsuyu soup:
Divide the noodles into several parts and place them onto different bowls. Then, top them separately with one of the three toppings you prepared in step 1 and 2. Finally, pour the tsuyu soup and enjoy them!
