Oh. My. Goodness! I made this entire meal – the chicken, the noodles, and the cucumber salad and it was just fabulous. I didn’t change a thing!
I just got a nice BBQ this year – I had never cooked on one – so it’s been a learning experience. Every time I’ve grilled chicken breasts, they turn out too dry by the time they reach the right temperature. These kabobs, on the other hand, were moist and flavorful and perfect. I let them marinate for about 6 hours and I’m glad I did. The flavor permeated the entire bits of chicken and not just the outside!
The peanut noodles were also divine. I liked the hit of spicyness without it being overwhelming.
I’d never made anything like the cucumber salad and wasn’t sure if I would llike it – but I knew I needed something light to balance out the richness of the noodles and chicken. It created the perfect balance! Plus it gave me a chance to use my madoline which always makes me smile.
Best of all though – this used almost entirely pantry staples, it was quick, and it was easy. I tend to be somewhat slow in the kitchen but this came together in no time.
Thanks for the recipe, Jaden! It’s definitely going in my folder of tried and true recipes.
