My husband is from Kansas and everytime we go back, we go to this restaurant called HuHot. I don’t know if this is a chain or not but it is a buffet line that you can put any noodle, vegetable, protein and sauces. Then they cook it in front of you. Seriously amazing food but this salad completely reminded me of that.
This recipe came out of the Come & Get It cookbook on page 48. The recipe actually calls for steak not chicken and it is also supposed to be cold but I wanted to have it warm instead.

This starts with a delicious marinade for the chicken which doubles as the sauce for the noodles. Its a combination of soy sauce, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger, brown sugar, sesame oil and hot chili oil.
Pour half of this over the chicken and let it sit for an hour. Then cook the chicken on the grill.
While the chicken is cooking its time for the peanut sauce. This is the best sauce ever! I just wanted to sit there and eat it with a spoon. It starts with onions cooked in curry powder and garlic. This gets put into a blender with peanut butter, coconut milk, hot chili oil, ginger, soy sauce, lime juice and salt. I believe this is what makes this dish so irresistible. Just drizzle dome over the pasta mixed with the sauce and chicken.
I will make this sauce for so many different dishes now.
The options are endless!!
