How to Cook Sesame Noodles with Chicken

  1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and add a generous measure of salt. Add the Chinese egg noodles (or spaghetti if you can't get Chinese noodles) and cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente (usually about 5 minutes). Drain and then rinse the noodles under cold running water. Drain again and put them in a large bowl. Add the sesame oil and toss the noodles to coat them well in the oil.
  2. Remove any skin from the chicken breasts then roughly shred the meat. Wash the cucumber well then halve it long-ways and cut each half into slices. Roughly chop the spring onions (scallions) and the dry roast peanuts. Peel the ginger root and peel the garlic.
  3. With the motor of the blender running, drop in the garlic and ginger. After a few seconds, stop the machine and add the peanut butter, soy sauce, dark brown sugar and rice vinegar. Process until smooth then, with the blender running, slowly pour in the water and blend for a few seconds more.
  4. To serve, toss the noodles with the peanut sauce, then top with the cucumber slices, shredded chicken, chopped spring onions and chopped peanuts... a truly delicious treat for a lunch or other light meal.


Graham GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
Just a drizzle of toasted sesame oil delivers richness and intensity to any dish. Maintain its full flavour by storing it in your fridge.

My husband and teenage son loved this dish. I doubled the sauce and added more veggies to give it a bit of colour - matchstick peppers and doubled the amount of green onion. Sprinkled some crushed peanuts on top. Yummy

Really delicious!!! However, I thought it was TOO much noodles. One pound? So next time I would double sauce or cut noodles in half. Add more veggies too, maybe. But YUMMY sauce. Def worth making!!!!!!
