Serves 4 (serving size: 1 kebab, 3/4 cup noodles, and 2 1/2 tablespoons sauce)

Marinated in a little honey, ginger, soy sauce, and peanut oil, Asian-inspired Chicken Kebabs with Cucumber Noodles are paired with cucumber noodles to create an easy weeknight dinner.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook noodles according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain and rinse with cold water. Drain. Combine 2 tablespoons vinegar, sesame oil, 1 tablespoon honey, and sugar in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add the noodles, onions, and cucumber; toss to combine.

Step 2

Combine remaining 1 tablespoon honey, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, ginger, and peanut oil in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add chicken to bowl; toss to coat. Thread chicken evenly onto 4 (10-inch) skewers.

Step 3

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat with cooking spray. Add kebabs to pan; cook 12 minutes or until done, turning to brown all sides.

Step 4

Combine remaining 1 tablespoon vinegar, remaining 1 tablespoon soy sauce, peanut butter, 2 tablespoons water, and sambal oelek in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Drizzle mixture over chicken. Garnish with cilantro. Serve with noodles.

Aside from stabbing myself in the finger with a wooden skewer while making this dish, I loved it! My husband really liked the peanut sauce, and the cold cucumber and soba noodle salad was something different and very tasty.

Did the kebabs but wasn't impressed with the marinade. Didn't try the noodles or the salad. the peanut butter dipping sauce was very tasty and would use that again.

I did make a couple major changes to this recipe, but I think even if I had made it as written it wouldn't have been any better. I'm a vegetarian so I used tofu (frozen and pressed); my meat-eater husband thought the recipe wouldn't have been improved with chicken. I also used almond butter since I don't eat peanuts, and the sauce had a chalky texture, I blended it in the food processor. Finally, I used bean thread noodles instead of soba, but the cucumber noodles were just bland, as was the carrot salad. Not a good receipe overall, and lots of prep with the different sauces.

Delicious! I didn't bother with the kabobs, just grilled the chicken breasts in pieces. The sauces - both the peanut and the sauce on the noodles - were outstanding. The entire family gobbled it down. Easy to make too. Will add to our regular rotation.
