I think that all food bloggers, if not anyone who cooks has their “stack” of recipes they want to try. It just grows and grows, you can never get through them all. This recipe was in that stack. I printed it almost 2 years ago. It has been on the menu more than once, but then we got busy or just felt like something different, so it never got made. Finally I put my foot down. We were having it no matter what. Really wish I wouldn’t have waited so long – it was great! It will get made again for sure! It came together really fast, and was super easy! It may look like a long list of ingredients, but it really is quick and easy!
1 Tbl Sesame Oil
1 Tbls fresh ginger, grated
2 garlic cloves, grated
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and chopped (you could use rotisserie chicken)
1/2 cup green onions, chopped
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
3 Tbls low- sodium soy sauce
2 Tbls rice vinegar
2 Tbls hoisin sauce
2 tsp sambal oelek (chili paste)
1 (6.75 ounce) package thin rice sticks
Chopped peanuts for garnish
Heat 2 tsp oil in a small skillet, over med-high heat. Saute the ginger and garlic for about 45 seconds. Stirring constantly. Place in a large bowl. Stir in the remaining 1 tsp oil, chicken and the rest of the ingredients (expect the noodles).
Cook noodles according to the package directions. Drain and rinse. Cut into smaller pieces. Add the noodles to the chicken mixture. Toss well to coat. Serve with a few peanuts sprinkled on top.
