Chinese Chicken Pasta Salad
Cook pasta according to directions, drain and cool. slightly steam pea pods just til crisp tender, drain and rinse in cold water to stop cooking.
Note: I actually make the dressing a day ahead in a small bowl as well as cook the chicken. When I assemble the salad I save some of the dressing in case I need to add a touch more just prior to serving. Sometimes the pasta will soak up some of the dressing while it sits in the refrigerator.
