2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, trimmed
3/4 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter
3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger
1 small cucumber, seeded, sliced and cut crosswise into thin strips
1 ripe plum tomato, thinly sliced
2 scallions, thinly sliced
How to Make It
Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water, according to package directions, until al dente. Reserve 1 cup cooking water and drain pasta in a colander.
Lightly oil a ridged grill pan; place over medium heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Grill chicken for 6 to 8 minutes per side, until just cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board to cool slightly. Chop chicken.
In a large bowl, whisk peanut butter, soy sauce, vinegar, oil, crushed red pepper and ginger until blended. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Add pasta and reserved water to bowl and toss to coat. Add chicken, cucumber and tomato; toss. Arrange pasta on a serving platter and garnish with scallions.
The recipe was pretty solid. I enjoy these type of asian noodle dishes. Easy to make, and pretty cost effective if you have the asian items already. You really need to like the flavor and texture of peanut butter, because I know they were trying to go for the peanut oil flavor, which you get, but the peanut butter texture is there as well. The cucumbers and tomatoes were nice flavor as well. I will make again.
