Chicken Sesame Noodles Recipe

I made these chicken sesame noodles as a cold dish, perfect for cooking in advance – with no need to reheat. It’s also a great choice for a picnic. Active prep time is short, although you do need to think ahead so you can marinade the chicken properly.

You can serve it with a hot vegetable or a cold salad and you have a complete meal. Or serve as a side dish when you’re entertaining. My baby loved slurping this up, and he enjoyed the chicken as well.

    This sounds interesting with the different ingredients. Something I will try since it is so easy to make and I think my daughter would like it.
