Sesame Chicken Noodle Salad

Alexis wanted to do something different with our rotisserie chicken from Costco, so instead of making a standard, mayo-based chicken salad, she used shirataki noodles and made a spicy sesame/peanut sauce. It was a very tasty salad, served warm, hot or cold.

-1 rotisserie chicken, shredded
-4 packages shirataki noodles, par-boiled
-4 stalks celery, diced
-2 bell peppers, minced
-3 stalks green garlic, minced

-2 tb sesame seeds
-4 tb dark soy
-3 tb natural peanut butter
-2 tb rice vinegar
-2 tb sesame oil
-1 tb rooster sauce
-2 tb hoisin sauce
-1 tb garlic powder

Sautee the green garlic, celery and bell peppers in a bit of oil, seasoned with salt and pepper and sautee for a few minutes, until beginning to brown, but not yet soft. Mix the sesame seeds, dark soy, peanut butter, rice vinegar, sesame oil, rooster sauce, hoisin and garlic powder together until smooth, then mix with the sauteed veggies. Then add the boiled noodles and the chicken and mix until thoroughly incorporated.
