I had leftover roasted chicken to use up so I decided to make a spicy sesame noodle dish with chicken, carrots, bell pepper, fresh basil, and cilantro. I made a sesame and soy dressing that made this dish extra tasty. This recipe was so quick and simple to make – perfect for a busy weekday dinner. My entire family loved this recipe and we gobbled up every last bite.

  1. Delicious! It was a little strong on the vinegar so we added a bit more soy and sesame; otherwise this is absolutely great. Nice job Pam!

  2. What a great way to use leftover chicken. I love the flavors and it looks super healthy for you. Another bookmarked recipe.

  3. With asian food I can just advise you to use Kampot Pepper, a very tasty pepper nothing to compare with other pepper. Enjoy!

  4. Just made this for dinner, tonight. It was GREAT! I accidentally left out the canola oil, but I just now noticed, actually, so it worked out just fine. I also used some pre-cooked turkey I had instead of chicken!

  5. I make a meal similar to this with leftover turkey at Thanksgiving time. Next time I will DEFINITELY use more veggies =D Yum! I omitted the Sriracha for my kids, but extra for me. I LOVE my Sriracha.

  6. Silly question maybe but the recipe doesn’t mention anything about cooking the veggies… are they supposed to be raw?

  7. This was very good. I am a vegetarian and left out the chicken. I added raw bok choy as well. I was skeptical about cilantro and fresh basil in an oriental dish but it was wonderful. Thanks!
