I have a bad, bad habit when it comes to sesame noodle recipes, which pretty much goes like this: I try every one I run across. The noodles, the peanut sauce, the sesame seeds, the slight kick of spiciness…there’s something about all of that that has me at hello, goodbye and everything in-between. As a result, there are a few of these on this very site, and I love all of them so dearly. I do.
But this one…this one has a special place in my heart. It involves tender roasted chicken and sweet shredded carrots. It can be eaten hot. It can be eaten cold. And it is largely based on a recipe from Cooks Illustrated, which pretty much guarantees that it will be perfect every time you make it.
So if you, like me, are head over heels in love with sesame noodles of all kinds, you must, must, must, must give this one a try. I promise it will be the kind of love that lasts a lifetime. Noodle-wise.
