Serves: 4-6                             

Prep Time: 30 mins                 

Assembly Time: 10 mins


  • 3 x GreenSkin® GMax® Avocados, peeled and sliced lengthways
  • 400gm chicken thighs, cut into strips  
  • 1 x 270gm packet of soba noodles
  • 1 x small knob of ginger, finely sliced
  • 3 x cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 x large red chillies, finely sliced
  • 4 x shallots or spring onion
  • 1 x tsp sesame oil
  • 3 x tsp Yakitori Sauce, available at most supermarkets
  • Sesame Seeds
  • Coriander
  • Vegetable oil for frying

Chicken Marinade

  • 1 x small knob of ginger, minced
  • 2 x cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 x tbsp Yakitori Sauce


Preparing the marinade:

  1. In an airtight container, combine ginger, garlic and yakitori sauce with the chicken thigh strips and leave to marinate for a minimum of 4 hours, but preferably overnight.

Preparing the noodles:

  1. Cook soba noodles in rapidly boiling salted water for 3 to 4 minutes (or according to packet instructions) until soft and tender. Strain and rinse under cold water to arrest the cooking. Place in a container and dress lightly with some oil to stop the noodles from clumping.
  2. When ready to use, simply steep them in some warm water and they are ready to go. Can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. 

Making your stir-fry:

  1. The stir-fry process should be super-fast, so make sure all the ingredients are ready to go before you start.
  2. Drain the chicken from the marinade. Using a wok or large frying pan, fry the chicken pieces on high heat until the chicken starts to develop deep caramel colour. Add the ginger and garlic and stir-fry for a further minute or two.
  3. Add the noodles, chilli and spring onion and toss through the chicken to combine. Add the Yakitori sauce, sesame oil and coriander.
  4. Off the heat, gently fold in the Avocado pieces. Mix gently as to not damage the avocado flesh in the process.
  5. Place in serving bowls and top with extra avocado slices, sesame seeds and more coriander. Serve.

*Chef Tip: Finely slice the chilli and spring onion and place in ice water. They will curl and look great for presentation.
