For The Noodles and Chicken:

For The Sauce


  1. Cook The Noodles: Bring a large pot of salted (1 teaspoon or so) water to a boil. Cook pasta al dente (until just tender, with some bite) Drain and cool under running water. Drain throughly and transfer to a large mixing bowl and toss with 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil to prevent sticking.
  2. Make The Sesame Peanut Sauce: Combine garlic, ginger, vinegar, honey (or sugar), peanut butter, water, soy sauce and Sriracha in a blender or food processor. Process for a minute or so until fully combined.  Some peanut butters are thicker than others. Add 2 tablespoons sesame oil and blend thoroughly. Repeat with remaining 2 tablespoons sesame oil. If the sauce is too thick, add more warm water, a tablespoon at a time, until you get the desired consistency.
  3. Finish The Dish: Add the chicken, carrots and 3/4 of the scallions to the bowl with the noodles. Pour the sauce over and toss gently to combine. Transfer noodles to a serving bowl or to individual bowls. Garnish with cucumber, scallions and sesame seeds. Serve at room temperature.
