I won’t ramble too much here….I REALLY want this to be one of the staple recipes in your kitchen. It’s just…perfection. Everyone will love. Unless you’re a vegetarian (what are you doing here) but yeah….just take out the chicken…sigh.
And it is best served cold or room temperature. AKA NOOOOO TIME MANAGEMENT SKILLS NECESSARY!
I first had this when I had the “Baby Shower On One Floor, Football Party On Another” party at my friend Melissa’s house. I INSTANTLY fell in love. My only change? I added a bit more spice. A lot of cayenne, along with the chili oil. Oh god it was good. Please make it and share how much you loved it. I could talk about this dish forever…
Inspired by this recipe [click].
PS: Love when people send me ideas / suggestions. This sounds great, from Dave:
“Love this recipe. It works almost as well with creamy peanut butter in place of the tahini. It’s also yummy with a tablespoon or two of minced ginger in the sauce, and some shredded carrots and Napa cabbage (in case you want to offer your guests the illusion of health!).”
1 large boneless chicken breast
1/2 lb dried linguine
1 teaspoon plus 1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/4 cup tahini (sesame paste)
3 tablespoons water (or to desired consistency)
2 teaspoon Sambal oelek (or chile oil)
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/4 cup peanut or canola oil
2 tablespoons minced garlic
3 scallions, chopped
