sesame chicken noodle bowl!

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE cold noodles. I grew up out on the east coast where Chinese restaurants would serve noodles in a thick peanut butter type sauce, and I always loved them. These noodles, however, are NOT those noodles. My husband doesn’t like peanut butter. He is from Mexico and says that peanut butter is “an American thing”. I believe it. It’s like vegemite and Australia. Regardless, I wanted to make myself a lunch that could still be served spicy and cold, but would also be tasty for the two of us, and what I came up with was this noodle bowl. I threw some chicken and edamame on top and voila! A new favorite was born.


What you need

  • 6oz noodles (angel hair, soba, ramen, linguine, whatever)
  • 1/8 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 tbs sugar
  • 1 tbs rice vinegar
  • 1/2 tbs sesame oil (I used black)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 2tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 boneless skinless breast, cooked and cubed
  • 1/2 cup edamame, removed from shell
  • lime wedge
  • siracha!

Cook your noodles.

In the meantime, whisk together soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, red pepper and sugar until sugar is dissolved.

Place cooked pasta, edamame and cubed chicken in a bowl. Pour sauce on top and toss.

Serve with siracha and lime.
