Ingredients

Sesame Noodles:
Soy-Ginger Vinaigrette:
Spicy Apricot Sauce:

Directions

In a food processor, combine the onion, garlic, and ginger and pulse to mince. Place in a bowl and combine with the lemon juice, olive oil, soy sauce, rum, crushed red pepper, sugar, and salt. Shake, or stir well, before use. Cut the chicken breast into 2-inch strips. Put in plastic bag or tub with marinade. Marinate in the refrigerator overnight.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Combine sesame seeds with the flour. Dredge marinated chicken strips in the flour-sesame mixture. In a skillet, heat enough canola oil to lightly coat the bottom of the skillet until hot, but not smoking. Cook chicken strips, on both sides until golden brown. Transfer to a shallow roasting pan and finish in the oven.

To assemble:

Toss the Sesame Noodles with some Soy-Ginger Vinaigrette and some fresh mesclun greens. Place the noodle salad on a plate and top with the cooked sesame chicken. Drizzle some Spicy Apricot Sauce over the chicken. Garnish with pickled ginger and a side of the apricot dipping sauce.

Sesame Noodles:

Cook angel hair pasta in boiling, salted water for 2 minutes or until al dente. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking. Add the cilantro, scallions, olive, and sesame oils. Combine well.

Soy-Ginger Vinaigrette:

Combine all ingredients, except for the water, in a blender. Blend for 30 seconds. Then add the water and blend for another 10 seconds.

Spicy Apricot Sauce:

Put all ingredients in a saucepan, and heat until the glaze melts. Whisk until smooth, and serve at room temperature. Add water if it gets too thick.
