Chicken noodle sauce is the shorthand way to sum up this crave-worthy Korean-inspired comfort food dish. The noodles are thick, toothsome udon, cooked to their soft yet snappy best. The sauce uses fresh apple, rice vinegar and sweet soy to check all the right boxes, with a bit of butter for a velvety finish. The chicken, seared and seasoned with sweet ginger and sesame spices, is served over top in juice-running slices. And make room for slaw, with pre-cut carrots and bok choy joining more apple for side crunch action.

Mise en place
Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Quarter and core the apple; thinly slice crosswise and toss with a splash of the vinegar to prevent browning. In a large bowl, make the slaw by combining the carrots, ¼ of the soy sauce, 2 tbsp oil (double for 4 portions) and ½ of each of the following: bok choy, apple and remaining vinegar. Toss well.

Cook the chicken
In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken* dry with paper towel; season with ⅓ of the spices and S&P. Cook, partially covered, 6 to 8 min. per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board, leaving any browned bits in the pan. Reserve the pan. Let the chicken rest for 5 min. before slicing against the grain.

Boil the noodles
While the chicken cooks, add the noodles to the pot of boiling water; stir gently to separate. Boil, 6 to 8 min., until al dente. Reserving ½ cup cooking water (double for 4 portions), drain the noodles. Toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking and set aside in a warm spot.

Make the sauce
While the noodles boil, in the reserved pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté the onions and remaining apple, stirring often, 2 to 3 min., until fragrant and slightly browned. Add the remaining vinegar, remaining soy sauce and ½ the reserved cooking water. Cook, stirring well, 1 to 2 min., until slightly reduced.

Combine the noodles
To the pan of sauce, add the noodles, remaining bok choy, remaining spices and 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions). Sauté, stirring constantly, 2 to 3 min., until the noodles are coated with the sauce. If the noodles seem dry, gradually add the remaining cooking water until you achieve your desired consistency.
