Chicken Satay Noodle Salad

This noodle salad was right up my ally.  My husband, mother and one child enjoyed it as well.  I found the recipe on blogging friend Lisa’s blog and she, in turn, linked it from another blog.  Here is what I did with the recipe:

Chicken Satay Noodle Salad


1 pound spaghetti
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
Juice of 2 limes
couple dashes chili oil
3 cloves garlic, grated

1 tablespoon sesame oil

2 or 3 tablespoons peanut oil (eyeball it)

2 cups skinned and sliced rotisserie chicken
1 cup packed fresh spinach, thinly sliced

1/3 cup shredded carrots (a generous handful)
4 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup chopped peanuts
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro (or more)


Bring a large pot of water to a boil, salt it, add the pasta and cook until al dente.  Drain and set aside.

While the pasta is cooking, in a large bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, honey and 1/4 cup warm water. Whisk in the soy sauce, lime juice, chili oil, sesame oil and garlic. Pour in the peant oil in a steady stream, whisking to combine.

Mix the drained noodles, sauce, and remaining ingredients in a large bowl and top with the peanuts and cilantro.
