> 2 - inch piece fresh ginger
> 1 bunch green onions
> 1 lemon
> 3 tbsp unsalted peanuts
> 2 tbsp peanut butter
> 1 tbsp soy sauce
> 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
> 1 (8 oz) pkg soba noodles
> 2 cups snow peas
> 1 cucumber
> 1 cup fresh cilantro


Peel and grate the ginger. Slice the green onions into rings. Juice the lemon and chop peanuts coarsely. In a bowl, mix together the ginger, lemon juice, peanut butter, soy sauce, and 2 tbsp tap water. Stir until they form a smooth dressing. Meanwhile, bring a pan of salted water to a boil.
Poach the chicken in barely-simmering water for 20 min., or until fully cooked. While chicken cooks, cook the noodles according to package directions. Drain and cool under cold, running water.
While chicken is poaching, cook the snow peas in salted, boiling water for 3 min. or until crisp and tender. Drain and cool under cold running water.
Toss the noodles with the soy dressing until completely coated. Add salt (in moderation) and pepper to taste. Slice the cucumber into rings, then cut the rings into ½-inch matchsticks. Coarsely chop the cilantro and slice the chicken breast. Toss chicken, cucumber, green onions, and cilantro with the noodles. Top with peanuts and serve immediately.
