Cold Noodles with Shredded Chicken
http://thewoksoflife.com/2015/06/cold-noodles-with-shredded-chicken/this recipe at TheWoksofLife.com.
Yields: 4 servings
For the noodles, you'll need:
1 chicken breast
2 slices ginger
1 scallion, cut into 3-inch lengths
2 generous servings of noodles (almost any noodle or pasta will work)
½ of a seedless cucumber, julienned
1½ cup bean sprouts (raw or blanched)
⅓ - ½ cup dry roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped (see our wok roasted peanuts recipe, which you can prepare ahead of time. Store-bought also works.)
1 scallion, finely chopped (optional)
A small handful chopped cilantro (optional)
For the sauce, you'll need:
2 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
4 cloves of garlic, finely minced
4 tablespoons rice vinegar
3 tablespoons light soy sauce
2 - 3 teaspoons chili oil (omit if you don’t like heat)
Salt, to taste
First, poach the chicken breast. Fill a small pot with enough water to submerge the chicken breast (but don't add the chicken yet), and add the ginger and scallion. When the water comes to a boil, add the chicken, and bring to a boil again. Immediately cover the pot, shut off the heat, and let the chicken sit in the water for 22-25 minutes. In the meantime, prepare the rest of the ingredients.
Prepare the sauce by combining all the sauce ingredients in a bowl. If you don’t like raw garlic, you can combine them in a small saucepan, and cook over low heat for a few minutes until the garlic is lightly browned, and the salt and sugar is dissolved.
Cook your choice of noodle by following the package instructions. Remember, no one likes soggy overcooked noodles, so keep an eye on them or set a timer! Drain the noodles and rinse thoroughly under cold water. They're now ready to use. If you're not ready to eat them right away, mix in about 1-2 teaspoons of oil to prevent the noodles from sticking together.
Assemble the noodles by mixing the following together: noodles, shredded chicken, julienned cucumber, bean sprouts, chopped peanuts, scallion and cilantro. Pour the sauce over everything and toss together. Serve!
