Chicken and Sesame Noodles


   So you may remember a while back my Aunt Jenny gave me a jar of tahini as a secret ingredient challenge.  She wanted me to make something with it that wasn't hummus.  So, my first recipe was tahini cookies that were delicious.  But I knew I wanted to make some sesame noodles too.  I threw in some veggies and chicken to make a meal out of it.



    Jax loves to eat noodles.  He is pretty crafty at picking around the broccoli though.  We are lucky enough to have some broccoli in the garden, so all we had to do was wander out to get some.  What a delicious way to use some of our harvest!

Chicken and Sesame Noodles

Ingredients:

6 oz whole wheat spaghetti
1 T olive oil
1 large chicken breast, cubed
1/2 cup carrots, chopped
3-4 cups broccoli florets
1/4 cup tahini
2 T low sodium soy sauce
3 T water
1 T sugar
1 tsp sriracha
2 1/2 T sesame seeds
salt and pepper to taste

  1. Cook the spaghetti according to package directions.  Drain and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together tahini, soy sauce, water, sugar and sriracha. Set aside.
  3. In a large pan, heat olive oil over medium heat.
  4. Add chicken and carrots to the pan.  Stir frequently until chicken is cooked through.
  5. Add broccoli florets and continue to cook for another 3-4 minutes.
  6. Stir in noodles and sesame seeds.  Pour sauce over everything and toss to coat. 
  7. Garnish with more sesame seeds or some cilantro if desired.

    1. I always have them on hand, so it is any easy substitute for soba noodles or rice noodles. The whole wheat goes really well with the sesame!

  9. This sounds yummy. I recently bought a big jar of tahini to use to make basil hummus and have been wondering what to do with the rest of it. Thanks for the recipe.

    1. This is a really good option! I was trying to use this whole jar without making hummus, but I think one batch of hummus might be in order ;-)
