Oh Sesame!

Sesame Grilled Chicken with Spicy Thai Noodles!
Tonight was the first night I made the Spicy Thai Noodles and it immediately became a family HIT!
Oh my goodness! YUM!

The chicken is easy add 1/3 to 1/2 C. Paul Newmans Low Fat Sesame Salad Dressing to a freezer bag and allow the chicken to un-thaw (or marinate).

Start both the chicken and the noodles either that morning or the night before.

Spicy Thai Noodles

1 box Angel hair pasta
1-2 tbsp. crushed red pepper    (1 for yum, 2 for HOT)
1/4 C. Veg. Oil
1/2 C. Sesame Oil
6 tbsp. Honey
6 tbsp. Soy Sauce
(one cube of cilantro if you don't have fresh)

To taste and to add right before serving green onions, cilantro, peanuts & toasted sesame seeds.

Boil, cook & drain pasta.
Heat both oils & crushed red pepper. If using the cilantro mini cube add to oils and heat over med heat in a small pan.
Strain, reserve oil.
Add honey & soy sauce to oil reserve and whisk.
Toss noodles to coat - refrigerate several hours until chilled.
Top each serving with chopped green onions, cilantro peanuts & sesame seeds.

Grill chicken either in a hot pan or on the grill and voila! Sesame paired with sesame hot & cold! Yummy!

 Mine before adding peanuts

Now I didn't roasted the peanuts however, I did cook them on low.
Peanuts are notorious for growing bacteria and mold while sitting in your closet waiting to be eaten.
Cooking them on low will kill off anywhere from 70-99.99% depending on the temp and how long you keep them over the heat.
I kept them until they were shiny and had lost the powdered look.

As I said before immediate family favorite!
In fact my hubby said that they are better then Panda's noodles!
