Roast & finish the chicken
1 Roast & finish the chicken

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Line two sheet pans with foil. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; place on one sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Evenly coat 2 seasoned chicken breasts with enough of the togarashi to coat (you may have extra). Roast 18 to 20 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.* Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven. Transfer to a cutting board. When cool enough to handle, slice crosswise. Transfer the 2 plain sliced chicken breasts to a large bowl; add the pesto. Stir to coat; taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

*An instant-read thermometer should register 165°F.

Cook & dress the noodles
2 Cook & dress the noodles

Meanwhile, add the noodles to the pot of boiling water, stirring gently to separate. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain and rinse warm under water 30 seconds to 1 minute to prevent sticking. Return to the pot. Add the sautéed aromatics; stir until thoroughly combined.

Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; cut into small florets. Cut off the stems of the peppers. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Place the mushrooms in a bowl; cover with 1/4 cup of hot water. Set aside to rehydrate at least 10 minutes. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Cut out the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Thinly slice the cucumbers into rounds. Halve the tomatoes. Peel and thinly slice the shallot. In a bowl, combine the sliced cucumbers, halved tomatoes, sliced shallot, and vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the beef; season with salt and pepper.
