This recipe is from Martha Stewart & it was very tasty! Nicely seasoned chicken sautéed & then served over cold rice noodles & vegetables!
This is very quick to make because most of the vegetables are sliced & served fresh… I sautéed a red pepper after cooking the chicken in the same pan. The noodles are soaked in hot water until soft… I used a potato starch noodle but you can use a rice noodle… or any instant noodle you prefer.
There is a marinade to make first, then the chicken is marinated for about 30 minutes or longer & you can prepare the rest of the ingredients while the chicken is marinating.
Here it the recipe I only added a sautéed pepper & changed the type of noodle I used from the original recipe.
For the Marinade/Dressing
4 green onions ( scallions), thinly sliced
1 tsp or 2 minced garlic cloves
1/2 soy sauce
1.2 rice vinegar
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp lime juice
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

1 1/4 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 recipe of the marinade/dressing….
3 1/2 ounces of Asian rice noodles, or use whatever instant noodle you like

To garnish your bowl, you can have some bean sprouts, chopped peanuts & sliced green onion tops
Make the Marinade
