Cold Sesame Noodles with Shredded Chicken
Cold sesame noodles.
Shhh…… can I tell you a secret?
Don’t tell anyone else but I’d like to show you how to cheat today.
I’m an honest person but this is a recipe that can fool your friends and family and make them think you are The One, the bomb, in the whole universe.
This dish requires no skill – really I’m not kidding.
You do not need a stove or even a microwave. That means PERFECT for hot summer days.
It will take you 5 minutes – okay, if you like to get a glass of wine first, then 10 minutes – to put together.
You can use it to feed as many people as you want.
And it’s PALEO FRIENDLY.
How cool is that ??
If you are really ambitious, fine. You overachieving kids :d
Poach the chicken in a pot of water and shred the meat into thin slices and store in an air-tight container (see instructions below so you won’t mess it up !).
If you are running out of time, no biggie. Get a store-bought rotisserie chicken and use my sesame/tahini combo below and call it a day.
Trust me, no one will call you lazy.
Should we start ?
