Chrissy Teigen's Sesame Chicken Noodles


Yesterday, I got a bug in me to try out a new recipe, and I knew just the cookbook I wanted to cook out of, Chrissy Teigen's Cravings. I absolutely love Chrissy (and John and Luna and Pepper and her dogs - don't judge me). She's funny, loving, gorgeous, and doesn't give two shits about what you have to say about her. If you love those qualities in her then you will love her cookbook. It's entertaining, funny, and does not disappoint. The recipes all look delicious! I actually read it cover to cover when I first got it, not to find recipes, just because it was fun to read. 

I decided to give her Sesame Chicken Noodles recipe a go. It seemed pretty easy, and we actually found Tahini at our local grocery store - winning! I knew at that point it was a sign to make it. 
I pretty much followed the recipe word for word except we used two chicken breasts instead of one. We wanted it to be a little fuller of a meal, and it worked out great! I've never boiled chicken before, but that and making the sauce was extremely easy to do. I left off the scallions because quite frankly I don't like them. But you do you and make it the way you want to.

The bowl below doesn't do it justice, but it was really, really good and will be a keeper in the Hubler Manor. It kind of reminded me of Chicken Pad Thai!
John's review: "Can you please make more, so I can take it to lunch? Can we also have this for dinner tomorrow night? This is a keeper! A+!"

TOTAL TIME: 1 hour
DIFFICULTY: 1 out of 5
SPICY: 1 out of 5
