Asian influence.

   Who doesn't like Asian food? OK, probably there are a lot of people who might not be fans of it, but somehow I have a feeling that between Chinese, Japanese, Thai, and Indian food there is something everybody can find delicious. Me and Justin love all of them! Our "special date" restaurant is a sushi place, our "too-lazy-to-cook" place is a Chinese takeout, and our "I want something exotic, delicious, and comforting" restaurant is Thai or Indian! No matter if you like sweet, sour, salty, or spicy things you will always find something for yourself in each of them. I am a little bit more comfortable cooking with Indian spices (but still far, far away from perfection) and Justin makes awesome sushi (stay tuned for some post in the future). That's why I decided to make something Asian: teriyaki sesame chicken with Soba noodles! Sounds Asian to me, but if anybody feels like I don't know what I'm talking about, I apologize, and I am open for any suggestions and good recipes! The list of ingredients is:

chicken breast (thinly sliced)
onion (chopped)
3-4 scallions
2 tsp fresh ginger (grated)
1 bell pepper
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
sesame seeds
Soba noodles
olive oil
salt and pepper

   Saute onions and ginger with olive oil, add sliced chicken, and cook for about 5 minutes. Add the cut bell pepper, scallions, sesame seeds, Worcestershire sauce, teriyaki sauce, and cook everything for 5-10 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve with cooked Soba noodles.

   It's sweet, tangy (ginger), and very flavorful. Soba noodles are delicious on their own but when served in this dish they are just amazing.
