Chicken and soba noodle salad with asian peanut dressing

Lucky Nicko... I made his lunch box today as I was feeling nice ;)
We had roast chicken salad last night so used the leftover chicken in a soba salad.

Chicken and soba noodle salad with asian peanut dressing

2 bundles of soba noodles
1/4 roast chicken (leg and thigh meat the best)
1/4 cucumber
1 baby gem
small handful of cashews
3 spring onions
pinch of shredded mint

dressing -
1 teaspoon of fresh chilli or harissa paste
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon of peanut butter
1 tablespoon sesame oil
freshly milled black pepper
juice of one lemon or 2 limes

  1. Whisk all the dressing ingredients together and check for seasoning
  2. Cook the soba noodles for approx 5 mins until tender then drain and chuck on the dressing so it absorbs into the noodles
  3. Mix in the chicken
  4. spoon over sliced cucumber and lettuce
  5. sprinkle over the spring onion, shredded mint and toasted cashews
This salad tastes better when cold but can't blame you for having a bit now when its all warm and smells so good!
