Sesame Noodles with Chicken

One of the Hubby and I's guilty pleasures has always been Chinese Buffets. Mmm... we especially love the ones that serve Mongolian BBQ. I've tried numerous times to make something at home that even resembles the delicious goodness but I've failed horribly every time. Gross! I found a recipe for Sesame Noodles and did not have much hope for it-- I tried it anyway and am pleased to say it blew me away. Hubby asked that I make it once a week. It wasn't Mongolian BBQ by any means but this stuff is packed with flavor, absolutely delicious and healthy. You can't go wrong with that!

Sesame Noodles with Chicken

1/2 lb. uncooked whole wheat spaghetti
1/2 pound cooked boneless chicken breasts (aprox 2 chkn breasts)
3 Tbsp. rice vinegar
3 Tbsp. low sodium soy sauce
2 Tbsp. hoisin sauce
1 Tbsp. dark sesame oil
2 tsp. chili sauce with garlic
1 1/2 tsp. honey
2 tsp. sesame seeds

Cook noodles according to package directions. Remove 1/4 c. of pasta cooking water- set aside. Drain and rinse noodles. In a large bowl combine noodles and chicken. Toss well. In a cup combined reserved cooking water, vinegar, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, oil, chili sauce and honey. Stir well. Pour vinegar mix over noodles. Toss until noodles are coated. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Makes approx. 6 cups.

*I found all of the "different" sauces required in the chinese food section of my grocery store.

1 cup= 7 pts. (points plus)



  1. Yummy! This looks sooo good. I'm the only one in my family who loves Chinese. Maybe this will change their minds. :)

  2. I tried this recipe for dinner tonight and everyone liked it. The only thing I would change would be for the sauce to be a little thicker. I tried to thicken it, but didn't do enough thickening. Thanks for sharing all of your wonderful recipes with us.

  3. I made this last night. I halved the recipe and didn't add the extra water. Turned out fine.
