Sesame Noodles with Chicken

This pasta is so good and it is good for you.  I gave my sister some of this pasta and she liked it so much, she ate some for breakfast!

1/2 lb uncooked whole-wheat spaghetti, or whole-wheat udon
1/2 cup scallions, green parts only, chopped
1/2 lb cooked skinless boneless chicken thighs, cut into strips
3 TBS rice vinegar
3 TBS low-sodium soy sauce
2 TBS hoisin sauce
1 TBS dark sesame oil
2 TBS balsamic vinegar
2 tsp chili sauce with garlic
1 1/2 tsp honey
1-2 TBS cilantro, fresh, finely chopped
2 tsp sesame seeds

Cook noodles according to package directions.  Remove 1/4 cup of the pasta cooking water; drain and rinse.

In a large bowl, combine noodles, scallions and chicken; toss gently but well.

In a cup, combine reserved cooking water, vinegars, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, oil, chili sauce and honey; stir well.

Pour vinegar mixture over noodles; toss gently but well to coat noodles.  Sprinkle with cilantro and sesame seeds.

I added steamed pea pods when I made this dish.  You could add shredded carrots or steamed broccoli.

Makes about 6 one-cup servings
