There’s no need to order delivery when you can prepare this satisfying take-out favorite in less than 20 minutes. This meal will come together even quicker if you purchase the veggies and chicken already cut and sliced. Ponzu sauce, is soy sauce that’s been seasoned with a combination of citrus juices and adds a wonderful zing to Japanese-inspired dishes. You can use it as a condiment or in stir-fries, marinades and salad dressings just like you would use traditional soy sauce. If you don't have any precooked soba noodles, cook 4 ounces of dry soba noodles according to the package directions—it only takes about 5 minutes.
