I made this using leftover grilled chicken and eggplant and it turned out great. I couldn't find roasted peanut oil so I used 3/4 peanut oil 1/4 toasted sesame oil. This is a perfect weeknight summer meal.

Fantastic! I couldn't find the roasted peanut oil, so I used sesame. I also left out the red onion. I will be making this again.

Super awesome! I made the recipe pretty exactly, except I added about 1 t. of red curry paste and instead of soba noodles I used bean threads (clear cellphane noodles). Delicious! The chicken is soooo juicy....

I had some leftover roasted chicken and found this recipe. Perfect for a hot summer night. Easy to make. The leftover tastes even better the next day.

Great summer dinner, next time I will double the chili paste and add creamy peanut butter. The lime juice on top is an essintial componant, don't skip it.

This was easy and really good, served it at room temp. Used leftover grilled chicken. I subbed whole wheat spaghetti for the soba, since that is what I had on hand. Also added about a cup of edamame and 2 cups shredded cabbage. I didn't have roasted peanut oil so I used regular peanut oil (1 tbs) and sesame oil (2 tbs), and doubled the other dressing ingredients since I added more veggies. I skipped the peanuts and basil since I didn't have these, but my family loved it and asked for me to make it again. It would be even better with the basil or maybe cilantro. It served four adults as a main dish with these additions - I don't think four ounces of spaghetti would go very far for four without the extra veggies. Would make a great summer bbq side.

This dish has good flavors but quite understated - I found it needed more of almost everything from salt to the chili garlic sauce. Nice texture, just needs more oomph

This is a great week-night dinner, though prep time is not going to be 15 minutes unless you've got a lot ready in advance, nonetheless the prep time is pretty reasonable. The receip does need a bit more oomph in the seasoning department, which is easy to supplement. The left-overs make great lunches. Family favorite.

The dressing for this is delicious. I had never cooked chicken like this, it was very tender. I used cilantro instead of basil, since I had it on hand. It was great!

I made this attempting to replicate a restaurant salad. The flavor combination is very good, but the amount of dressing was quite meager - I had to double it (except for the peanut oil, for which I substituted peanut butter) as it barely coated the chicken. I omitted the red onion, added black beans and roasted red pepper strips, and substituted cilantro for the basil. As others observed this took much longer than 15 minutes to put together, but the result was well worth it; and I would make this again with the above changes.
