2T sambal oelek (spicy garlic chili sauce) or to taste

2 cloves garlic

1/4 tsp sesame oil

juice of one lime


1/2 lb Thin oriental steamed noodles (the kind you find in the produce department) cooked and cooled)
2 Skinless chicken breasts (marinated in 1/2 cup of the dressing)
1 Large head Romaine lettuce, washed and chopped
1/4 cup Fresh mint, chopped
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 cup Diced red onion
1/2 cup Unsalted roasted peanuts

To prepare:

Pan fry or BBQ the chicken strips and set aside.

To assemble:

Place noodles at the bottom of a deep bowl
Place romaine lettuce
