How to Make Asian Noodle Salad with Chicken and Cashews

Step-by-Step

  1. Marinade:
    Combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly. Pour 3-4 tablespoons of marinade in a large zip lock bag, add chicken and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Set the remainder of dressing/marinade in a sealed container in the refrigerator so flavors can combine.
  2. Salad:
    Cook the spaghetti per instructions, rinse with cold water and drain. Add half of the dressing to the noodles and let it sit for 20-30 minutes (this allows the noodles to become very flavorful).
  3. Prepare all the vegetables, set aside.
  4. Grill chicken until cooked thoroughly (about 3-4 minutes on each side), let the meat rest for 5 minutes before slicing into chunks.
  5. Add the vegetables, cashews, mandarin oranges, chicken and remainder of dressing to the noodles. Stir until well combined and serve. Enjoy.
