Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 Colander
  • 1 Medium Pot
  • 1 Large Non-Stick Pan

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim and thinly slice green onions. Pat chicken thighs dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut chicken into ¾" dice. Don't worry about trimming. Excess fat will render while cooking and add flavor.

  • Step 2 - Cook the Noodles

    Cook the Noodles

    Once water is boiling, add noodles and cook until al dente, 4-6 minutes. Reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water and drain noodles in a colander. Return to pot and set aside. While noodles cook, cook chicken.

  • Step 3 - Cook the Chicken

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken, ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper to hot pan. Stir occasionally until chicken is golden brown and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes.

  • Step 4 - Make the Sauce

    Make the Sauce

    Add garlic sesame sauce, sesame oil, slaw, reserved pasta water, noodles, and half the green onions (reserve remaining for garnish) to pan. Stir occasionally until thoroughly combined, 2-4 minutes. Season with red pepper flakes (to taste), and a pinch of salt and pepper. Remove from burner.

  • Step 5 - Finish the Dish

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing with remaining green onions and sesame seeds. Bon appétit!
