Noodles with Peanut Sauce Recipe

I made bigger portions for pot luck or staff shared lunch and went very well.
Noodles with Peanut Sauce


150g dried noodles or fresh
2 tsp chilli oil, plus extra to serve
3-4” section of a large English cucumber, removed seeds and julienned
1/4 portion of a cooked chicken breast, finely shredded
2 Tb chopped scallion
2 Tb chopped cilantro
1/2 tsp toasted and ground Sichuan red peppercorns

Peanut Sauce (mix until smooth):
3 Tb smooth natural peanut butter
3Tb warm water
1 Tb sugar
2 Tb soy sauce
2 Tb white vinegar
1 Tb sesame oil
1/2 tsp salt
2 cloves garlic, finely minced or grated


1. Cook noodles in boiling water until tender. Drain very well and toss with 2 tsp chiili oil and 2 Tb of the peanut sauce. Put on a large dish or divided into two servings.
2. Arrange cucumber and chicken on top of noodles.
3. Sprinkle with scallions, cilantro and finally the ground Sichuan peppercorns.
4. To serve, Drizzled 2 Tb sauce over and toss everything together. Add extra sauce to taste and 1 tsp chilli oil if like.
5. Eat them warm or at room temperature.


Used 2 Tb sesame paste for the peanut butter if you can get hold of it in Asian shops. You can buy chiili oil in bottle or make it by infusing 2 tsp chilli powder in 2 Tb heated oil, leave to cool and strain through a fine sieve. Instead of chicken, you can used ham, finely shredded thin omelette. Other toppings can be added are briefly blanched julienned carrot or briefly blanched beansprouts. You can make large portion of sauce keep in bottle refrigerated and use it for salad, shake it each time before used.
