I am all for easy, weeknight comfort meals made with fresh and local ingredients. This is what I like to call #NewComfortFood. When there are minimal ingredients, it makes for easy meal prep!
Today I am going to show you how to make spicy sesame noodles with Foster Farms Simply Raised fresh chicken.
While I am working through my Chrissy Teigen “Cravings” cookbook, I found a recipe for spicy sesame noodles. Last week I made the recipe as provided in the cookbook, but Ernie and I felt like it was overly spicy and had way too much sauce.
So this week, I made the recipe with some modifications and it was perfect!
Pin the recipe for later:
- Kosher Salt
- 1 (8 ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breast (I used Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken)
- 8 ounces of dried fettuccine
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1/8 cup canola oil
- 1/8 cup Trader Joe's Tahini
- 1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon chili oil
- 1/2 teaspoon honey
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 clove garlic
- Fill a large saucepan 2/3 fill of water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat
- Salt the water
- Once the water comes to a boil, place the chicken in the water, remove the pot from the heat
- Cover and cook for 15 minutes
- Remove the chicken from the water, BUT DON"T THROW AWAY THE WATER
- Bring the water to a boil again and cook the fettuccine according to the box directions
- Drain and rinse the pasta in cold water
- While the pasta cooks, in a large bowl, whisk together all the ingredients until smooth.
- After the pasta has dried, add the pasta to the sauce bowl.
- Shred the chicken with two forks or cut into bite size pieces and add to the pasta
- Stir the sauce and the pasta all together
- Serve in individual bowls
The second time making the recipe was a success! For the chicken, I used Foster Farms Simply Raised fresh chicken. Foster Farms is the leader in antibiotic free and local chicken on the West Coast. Since I am the one who does the grocery shopping for our home, I always like to make sure I am providing the best for my family.
I would love to hear if you made this recipe and how your family liked it! I made a huge amount the second time I made the recipe so I could have leftovers during the week. Trust me, these noodles are even better served cold the next day!
