Chicken salad recipe with sesame & peanut dressing

I really do love a noodle salad. You can find some of my other favourite noodle recipes here and here. I  often eat a very simple version of rice noodles with tofu and salad for lunch. I find  it so easy to incorporate a great big serve of veg and salad into a tasty noodle dish.

This chicken and noodle salad is made extra special by the addition of the amazing sesame and peanut dressing. It really is THAT. GOOD.

It also has quite a good amount of chicken so it should feed up to 4 people. Try adding a little bit of fresh, sliced, red chilli at the end of the recipe if you would like a little more kick.

Chicken salad recipe with sesame & peanut dressing


500g of diced chicken breast

200g of rice noodles

2 tsp of olive oil

1 bunch of coriander, roughly chopped

1 small yellow capsicum, diced

150g of green beans, diced

1 small cucumber, diced

1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds

1 small handful of mint leaves

1 small carrot diced


2 tbsp of rice vinegar

1 garlic clove, chopped

1 tbsp of ginger, grated

1/4 cup of peanut butter

2 tbsp of lemon juice

1/3 cup of water

1/4 cup of sesame oil


Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium high heat and then add the chicken pieces. Cook until all cooked through then remove from the pan and set aside.

Put all the dressing ingredients into a blender  and blend until they are thoroughly mixed.

Cook the noodles according to packet directions then leave to drain.

Add the cooked chicken, vegetables and salad ingredients (reserving the mint and spring onions) and noodles to a large salad bowl and toss gently. Spoon over the salad dressing and mix through.

Top with toasted sesame seeds, mint and chopped spring onions.

Serve and enjoy.
