Pinch of Yum’s Chicken with Sesame Noodle Bowls

sesame-noodles-8

INGREDIENTS
Sesame Sauce
  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger (I use a fresh paste)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 3-4 tablespoons water
  • 2-3 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
Other Ingredients
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 ounces soba noodles
  • 1 cucumber (can swap for other veggies, too)
  • 3 large carrots
  • 1 handful cilantro
PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS
  • Sauce: In a food processor, combine all the ingredients for the sesame sauce except the sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. Pulse until mostly smooth; stir in sesame seeds and red pepper flakes.
  • Noodles: Cook soba noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  • Chicken: Heat a large skillet with a little oil over medium heat. Cut the chicken breasts in half if they are large. Add the chicken; sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Saute until barely golden brown on the outside. Add about a third of the sesame sauce to the chicken with a little water to thin it out. It might splatter, so turn down the heat at this point and have a lid ready. Let the chicken finish cooking in the sauce for a few minutes. Remove the chicken from heat, let cool slightly, and shred.
  • Veggies: Chop the veggies super-finely or put them in the food processor and get them all minced up. Drain out any excess moisture.
  • Toss everything together and serve hot or cold.
