Chicken Noodle Slice
« on: February 09, 2016, 12:35:41 am »
This recipe is gluten free (if using soba noodles otherwise use your favourite noodles), savoury slice full of protein, vegetables and some carbs too. It holds together well as a cold packed lunch and really nice hot from the oven too.  Serve with a salad or eat on it's own as a nice lunch or dinner:

Makes: 12 small to medium portions (or less if you cut larger squares)

INGREDIENTS:

Noodle Base:
150g dry soba noodles
Water
1 egg

Chicken Topping:
2 cloves garlic
200g zucchini, sliced into 4cm disks
200g carrots, sliced into 4cm disks
30g kale or spinach (large handful)
500g chicken breast fillets (approx 2 fillets, quartered)
2 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
1 egg
30g grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp dried herbs
Pepper, to taste

METHOD:

Preheat oven 180įC / 350įF, line a slice tray with grease-proof paper

Noodle Base:

    Prepare dry noodles with water, to packet directions, drain and mix one egg through the mixture
    Spread the noodle mix evenly over the slice pan

Chicken Topping:

    Add garlic to Thermomix: 3 sec, speed 7
    Add zucchini, carrots and kale: 2 sec, speed 6
    Add all remaining chicken topping ingredients: Turbo approx 4 times until chicken is minced roughly and other ingredients are distributed through evenly
    Spread chicken mixture evenly over the noodle base, flatten with a spatula
    Bake 35 minutes or until golden and cooked through
    Remove from oven, let cool for about 10 min before slicing and refrigerate immediately

How I wish I had a family to cook for, this is another lovely looking meal Eva.  Do you know if the noodle base would make this freezable?

Thanks Judy :)

I think it should be ok if you are using fresh chicken that hasn't been defrosted but am yet to test this out. I too would like to freeze this as we are only the 2 of us and it would be good to have them in lunch sized portions. I don't think the noodles would be a problem because they get really compacted as the base and it's hard to recognise them as noodles anyway once it's all cooked with the egg.  Next time I make it, I will freeze and let you know.

Pasta freezes ok. I must try this. Another thing to use my pasta machine for.

Eva I will be making my own soba noodles. Do you think it would be adequate to just mix them with the egg?  They cook very quickly when I make them for other dishes.

Hi Cookie, yes I think that would work well. The ones I use are dried and I soak them in boiling water for a few minutes first. Let me know how it goes.
