Sesame Soba Noodles

Sesame Soba Noodles

This is an easy meal to make cause most people have all of these ingredients in their pantry already. If i'm missing an ingredient or two I can usually find a substitute or just leave it out and it still tastes pretty good. This is also a really tasty and easy dish to make for hot summer days, or in my case, almost any day in Texas.

Prepare ahead of time:
4 cups of cooked, cooled soba noodles
1 large chicken breast, cooked, cooled and shredded
1/2 cucumber, seeded and julienned

1/4 cup of peanut butter
2 tablespoons of sesame oil
1 teaspoon of chili oil
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 tablespoon of rice vinegar
2 tablespoons of honey
1 teaspoon of ground or finely minced ginger
1 clove of minced garlic
*you can adjust these proportions to your taste (sweet, salty, sour)

Whisk together the ingredients for the sauce. If sauce is too thick, dilute with water or chicken broth. Arrange noodles on a platter and top with the cooked chicken and cucumber. Drizzle the sauce on top. Garnish with sesame seeds and minced scallions if you have them on hand (i didn't). Toss before serving/eating. Serves 2-4.

alright "i hate peanut butter" girl. you can leave the peanut butter out, replace it with tahini (sesame paste), or just add more sesame oil.
