As my mind's on Breaking Dawn, I can't help but think that if vampires could eat, they would really enjoy this straight out of the fridge after a little horizontal immortal mambo. Just sayin'. What I wish & get are two different things, no spoilers here. Anyway, ahem, here's the recipe.....
Sesame Chicken & Noodles (adapted from Better Homes & Gardens)
1/3 cup rice vinegar
1/3 cup sliced scallions
2 tblsp honey
1 tblsp soy sauce
1 tsp ground ginger
2 tblsp Asian garlic chili sauce
3/4 lb fresh chicken tenderloins
8 oz pkg whole wheat whole grain thin spaghetti
2 tblsp sesame oil
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 8oz pkg special blend mushrooms
In medium bowl stir together vinegar, scallions, honey, soy sauce, ginger & garlic-chili sauce. If you have pre-packaged chicken toss it into sauce & set aside to allow flavors to meld. If using fresh chicken, saute in pan with a little oil for a few minutes. Add red pepper & mushroom & saute for another few minutes. Add to sauce & set aside.
Meanwhile, prepare your noodles. When they're done, rinse with cold water if you are eating the dish cold. Toss with the sesame oil. Place on plate & then spoon chicken mixture on top.
If you don't have garlic chili sauce, just add some garlic powder to the sauce. Also, original recipe called for 12 oz pkg of refrigerated grilled chicken breast strips but I don't like buying those pre-packaged goods because of the sodium.
