Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Add chicken; toss to coat. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add chicken; cook 10 minutes or until done, turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes. Thinly slice across the grain.
Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add noodles; cook 2 minutes. Add peas; cook 1 minute or until noodles are tender. Drain. Combine rice vinegar and next 3 ingredients in a bowl. Add noodle mixture; toss to coat. Arrange about 1 cup noodle mixture in each of 4 shallow bowls. Top each serving with about 3 1/2 ounces chicken. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and onions.
This was a pretty darn good recipe! For the hoisin sauce on the chicken, I used black vinegar instead of Worcestershire & balsamic, as suggested in the magazine. It was probably my favorite part of the meal! The noodles are very lightly dressed - I might double the amount of dressing next time because they seemed a bit dry. I made the Cucumber-Peanut Salad with it - what a great side to compliment this dish! Yum. The husband was very happy too.
I used boneless, skinless thighs and added extra sambal oelek. I doubled the sauce and used snow peas. I let the chicken edges char slightly. I also subbed whole wheat thin noodles.Yummy! The flavors melded overnight and the leftovers were even better than the day I made the recipe.Laughs, not that there were many leftovers! The only thing I would change is next time I will double the noodle sauce as well. I made my Cucumber Salad with Lime Vinaigrette instead of the other cucumber salad.
Very tasty recipe. The whole thing was easy to put together. I did use Dreamfields pasta as my store didn't carry the soba noodles. I have made this twice once with soba noodles and both times it tasted great. I made the cucumber peanut salad but my family preferred my regular marinated cucumber salad than this recipe. Will definitely make this again.
I also liked this recipe and found it fairly simple to make. Like the last reviewer I think the sauce for the noodles could be more to cover all the noodles (had and used leftover linguine, which was fine!). Didn't make the side dish with cucumber but will next time I make this.
