This easy recipe for cold sesame chicken noodles is the perfect one dish supper, with the perfect blend of peanut and sesame flavored sauce.


  • 8 ounces linguine
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 cups shredded cooked cold chicken
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • 2 chopped scallions
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • Tabasco or other hot sauce (optional!)


  1. Cook linguine according to package directions, then drain under cold water until cool.
  2. While linguine is cooking, cut the cucumber up into small chunks or strips.
  3. Make sauce by combining sesame oil, peanut butter, soy sauce and vinegar.  Whisk it together, thinning it with a little hot water if you need to.
  4. Place cooked pasta in a mixing bowl and add sauce.  Toss (the easiest way to do this is with clean hands), and then add chicken, cucumber, scallions and pepper.  Toss again.
  5. Divide among four plates, garnish with sesame seeds and pass the hot sauce so everyone can spice up their noodles (or not!)
