Soba Noodles with Chicken & Ginger Sauce

This is the first time that I have had soba noodles – I found them in the freezer section of the Asian market in town.  They are buckwheat noodles that are about the diameter of spaghetti noodles.  I will definitely be using them in another recipe, it’s great to use another noodle that is just slightly different that the norm (for me at least).  I really liked this recipe, and as usual made some modifications from the original…it’s not truly my recipe until I do that 🙂
