so far in the race to become liveable space, the kitchen is winning. while there are still cabinets to organize, and items to place, it is more or less functional. one of the first dishes i made in our new kitchen is noodles with sesame sauce, one of my favorite kind of chinese noodles. it's a very easy dish to make, and completely delicious. the husband can't get enough of of the sauce, and neither can i. i often double or triple the recipe so we have plenty of leftovers.
1/3 lb chinese wheat noodles (prepare as indicated on package)
shredded chicken breast (i steamed mine)
(this can be made in advance) in a medium sized bowl, combine the following, mixing with each additional ingredient:
3 tb sesame paste (found at asian grocery stores)
1/2 tb sugar
1/2 tb vinegar
2 tb soy sauce
2 tb sesame oil (found in the asian aisle at a regular grocery store)
5-7 tb water, depending on your preference- start with less and taste test
start with the noodles on the bottom, add shredded chicken and a generous amount of sauce, and top with shredded cucumber.
this dish can also be served cold.
