2 6-oz
boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3 Tbsp
sesame oil
salt, to taste
freshly ground pepper, to taste
2 tsp
minced garlic
1 tsp
minced ginger
1 tsp
chili paste
1 tsp
1/4 c
hoisin sauce
2 Tbsp
rice wine vinegar
1/4 c
smooth peanut butter
1/2 c
1 lb
soba noodles
1/2 c
chopped toasted peanuts
1/4 c
chopped green onions, green part only


1Preheat the grill.
2Bring a pot of salted water to a boil.
3Season the chicken breast with 1 tablespoon of sesame oil, salt and pepper. Place the chicken on the grill and cook for 4 to 5 minutes on each side. Remove from the grill and cool completely.
4In a saucepan, heat the remaining sesame oil. Add the garlic, ginger and chili paste. Cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in the sugar and continue to cook for 1 minute. Stir in the hoisin, vinegar, peanut butter and water. Mix well.
5Bring the mixture to a simmer and remove from the heat. Cool the sauce completely.
6Add the noodles to the water and cook until tender, about 4 to 4 1/2 minutes, stirring the noodles constantly with chop sticks. Drain and rinse the noodles under cold water, using your fingers to separate the noodles while cooling.
7Toss the noodles in the peanut dressing. Slice the chicken, very thin, on the bias. Add the sliced chicken, peanuts and green onions to the pasta. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper.
8Serve the noodles cold.
