Get the recipe: Chilled Peanut Chicken Noodle Salad Recipe courtesy of Food Network Kitchen Total: 35 min Prep: 20 min Cook: 15 min Yield: 4 servings Level: Easy Ingredients Kosher salt 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter 1 large boneless, skinless chicken breast (about 12 ounces), sliced crosswise 1/4 inch thick 1/4 cup rice vinegar 2 tablespoons soy sauce 2 tablespoons Sriracha, or more as needed 4 scallions, thinly sliced (white and green parts) 6 ounces thin rice noodles (vermicelli) 1 romaine heart, thinly sliced (about 3 cups) 2 Persian cucumbers or 1 regular cucumber, thinly sliced (about 2 cups) 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced 1 cup loosely packed roughly chopped fresh cilantro (from about 1 medium bunch) Lime wedges, for serving Directions START THE WATER: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. POACH THE CHICKEN: Bring 1 1/2 cups water to a simmer in a medium skillet. Whisk in the peanut butter, then add the chicken. Cook over medium-low heat at a bare simmer until just cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the chicken to a plate; continue to simmer the sauce until thickened and reduced by about half, about 5 minutes. Take off the heat and whisk in the vinegar, soy sauce, Sriracha, and scallions. Cool slightly. COOK THE NOODLES: Add the rice noodles to the boiling water and cook until almost tender, about 3 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water to cool. Drain the noodles very well, tossing with tongs to release as much water as possible. Snip the noodles with scissors a few times to cut the long strands. TOSS THE SALAD: Toss the noodles with the romaine, cucumbers, bell pepper, half of the cilantro, and just enough dressing to coat. Season with salt. Divide among 4 bowls and top with the chicken. Drizzle the remaining dressing over the top and garnish with the remaining cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.
