Loosely inspired by Chinese sesame noodles, this recipe features soba instead of fresh wheat noodles tossed in a spicy peanut sauce. Shelled edamame, shredded rotisserie chicken, cucumbers and scallions add extra protein and a great crunch.



  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the soba and edamame and cook as the noodle label directs. Reserve 1 cup cooking water, then drain the soba and edamame and run under cold water until cool.
  2. Whisk the peanut butter, vinegar, soy sauce, ginger, sesame oil and chili sauce in a large bowl. Add 1/2 cup of the reserved cooking water and whisk until smooth. Add the soba and edamame, season with salt and toss to combine (add more cooking water to loosen, if needed). Divide among shallow bowls and top with the chicken, cucumber and scallions.
