GF Sesame Chicken Spicy Noodles 0
IG handle: @cancookwilltravel
- 1 Chicken Breast, poached
- 8 oz. Rice Noodles, brown or regular
- 1 t. Sesame Oil
- 1/8 c. Grapeseed Oil
- 1/8 c. Tahini
- 3 T. Tamari
- 2 T. Red Wine Vinegar
- 2 t. Chili Oil
- 1 t. Sesame Oil
- 1 Garlic Clove, minced
- 3/4 t. Cayenne
- Green Onions, sliced
- Chicken: Poach the chicken by bringing a large pot of water to a boil. Then place the chicken breast in the water, cover, and remove the pot from the heat. Let the chicken poach for 18-23 minutes depending on the chicken size, then remove from the water and let it cool on a plate. Finally shred with your hands.
- Noodles: Once the chicken has poached, then you can cook your noodles. If you’re using regular rice noodles, soak in cool water for 30 minutes as the chicken poaches, and then cook in the boiling water the chicken cooked in for 2 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. If you’re using brown rice noodles, skip the soaking, and cook according to the package instructions in the boiling water the chicken poached in. Drain and then rinse with cold water.
- Sauce: Combine all of the sauce ingredients in a bowl and then whisk really well.
- Finish Dish: Pat the noodles dry with a paper towel and then toss them with 1 teaspoon of sesame oil. Then add the chicken to the noodles and pour the sauce over the top. Toss the noodles and chicken so they are fully coated in sauce, and serve right away with green onions and Sriracha for added heat. This dish works well served warm or cold!

*Shiitake Dashi --- “dashi” means stock in Japanese
- 1 ¼ cups water, for soaking dried shiitake

How to make Shiitake Dashi:
- Clean (remove dirt or any particles) trapped between the gills of shiitake.
- Soak the cleaned shiitake in water for a minimum of 3 hours up to overnight.
- After soaking, trim the stem and gently squeeze the caps over the soaking water to reserve the water that was squeezed out.
- Place a paper towel over a fine strainer. Pour the soaking water to remove any excess dirt. You should end up with about 1 cup of dashi (soaking water.)
- In a large pot, cook the rice pasta for 8 minutes. Transfer to a colander then rinse it under running water. Drain water very well and set it aside.
- In a frying pan, pan-fry tofu cubes with canola oil over a medium high heat. Season with garlic pepper salt and continue to cook until golden brown. Take the frying pan off the heat and set it aside.
- In a different pot, cook minced garlic and ginger with canola oil over a medium heat to avoid burning. Cook until fragrant.
- Add curry powder then cook for a minute to release the aroma of the curry powder.
- Pour in vegetable stock, coconut milk, shiitake dashi, lime juice, salt and black pepper. Turn up the heat to bring it to boil then turn it down to medium-low heat.
- Dissolve miso paste into the soup then add broccoli florets, and sliced shiitake. Let it simmer for 5-7 minutes until broccoli is tender and also flavor comes together.
- Transfer the noodle in a serving bowl then pour the soup over.
