    Cook the chicken
    In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with the spice blend and S&P. Add the chicken to the pan and cook, partially covered, 7 to 10 minutes per side, until cooked through. Add ½ the ginger and ½ the garlic; cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the orange juice and as much of the orange zest as you’d like; cook, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until the sauce has thickened. Flip the chicken several times to coat thoroughly in the sauce. Transfer the chicken and any pan sauce to a plate; set aside in a warm spot. Reserve the pan.

    Cook the udon
    While the chicken cooks, add the noodles to the pot of boiling water. Cook, 6 to 8 minutes, until just al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Reserving ½ a cup of the cooking water, drain the noodles; toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking and set aside in a warm spot.

    Cook the vegetables
    While the pasta cooks, in a second large pan (nonstick if possible), heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the cabbage and bok choy; cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 minutes, until softened. Add the remaining garlic and ginger; cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until fragrant; season with S&P to taste.

    Finish & serve
    In a medium bowl, combine ½ the reserved cooking water, sweet soy sauce and ponzu sauce. Heat the reserved pan on medium-high heat; add the sweet soy-ponzu mixture and cooked udon. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until the udon are coated thoroughly with the sauce. Stir in the vegetables. If the sauce seems too dry, gradually add the remaining reserved cooking water. Divide the finished udon and vegetables between your plates; top with the chicken and garnish with the scallions. Bon appétit!
