Sesame Chicken and Noodles
I made this for dinner tonight and we thought it was really tasty. It's
going into my Delicious folder. I did make changes. I used fresh cappelini
instead of spaghetti And, I used chicken instead of shrimp I doubled the
recipe for the noodles but I didn't double the sauce. Next time I will
but the dishes were nicely coated so it really isn't necessary. Having
said that here is what I did.
I had a rotisserie chicken that I had pulled apart yesterday. I sauteed
the yellow bell pepper strips in a little oil in my medium size fry pan.
When the peppers were still a little crisp tender I added the torn up
pieces of cooked chicken. Heated all that then added the sauce. Put that
over the cooked cappelini and added a few green beans that I had blanched
the other day.
Next time I'll probably add some snow peas to the chicken or maybe
broccoli florets and I'll sprinkle the dish with some sesame seeds.
