Sesame Noodles

This is the lightest noodle dish I could find and a great one to introduce your young ones to Chinese food with.  However, I like to spice this up with a 1/2 cup of tahini and a little Sriracha chili sauce added to the dressing.  Start with a 1/2 tsp Sriracha and add more to taste.

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 4 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 lb chicken breasts, grilled and sliced
  • 8.8 oz soba or somen noodles
  • 3 cups broccoli
  • 1 small bell pepper, sliced (any color you like)
  • 1 tablespoons sesame seeds

In a small bowl, whisk together soy, vinegar, oil, ginger, sugar and lime juice.  Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.  Add noodles and cook according to package directions.  Add broccoli to noodle pot for final 4 minutes of cooking.  Drain and rinse in cold water.

Place noodles, broccoli and bell pepper in a large bowl. Drizzle with dressing and toss to coat.  Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.

Note:  You can use any leftover, cooked chicken you have on hand for this recipe, including a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. If your kids enjoy Chinese food, you can also do take out for this dinner and a movie!
