I got this recipe from a good friend years ago. I whip it out almost every year for a summer party and the bowl is always scraped clean.
Sesame Chicken Noodle Salad
1 package angel hair pasta (either plain or whole wheat)
½ T. olive oil
2-3 chicken breasts
1 T. sesame oil
2 T. soy sauce
1 bunch scallions, chopped
2 cans water chestnuts, chopped
1 t. ginger, grated
Toasted sesame seeds (for garnish)
Cook pasta. Strain, rinse well, and mix with olive oil. Set aside in large bowl
Saute chicken breasts until cooked. (I usually sauté in some olive oil and sprinkle on a bit of salt and pepper). Allow chicken to cool. Shred chicken into bowl over pasta. Add sesame oil, soy sauce, scallions, water chestnuts and ginger. Stir together until all ingredients are blended together.
Cover and chill for at least a few hours. This tastes even better if you let it chill overnight and allow all the flavors to blend. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top and serve at your next summer picnic!
