Our Spicy Sesame Noodles with Chicken and Peanuts have a healthy serving of red pepper flakes but don't actually come across the palate as very spicy, but more savory. The warm toasted flavors and gentle peanut crunch deliver a wholesome, mild flavor that lends itself to larger fork-fulls so don't eat too fast. ;) A treat meal to nurture both your taste buds and your lean muscle mass. Enjoy!



  1. In a medium heatproof bowl, stir together the red-pepper flakes, Tamari sauce and sesame oil. Set next to the stovetop.

  2. In a large (12-inch) skillet over medium heat, cook ⅔ of the grapeseed oil, peanuts and orange rind, shaking the pan occasionally, until the peanuts are golden and bubbling, 3 to 5 minutes. Immediately pour the contents of the skillet over the red-pepper mixture (be careful of splattering!) and set aside.

  3. Meanwhile, in the same skillet, heat the remaining oil over medium-high. Add the chicken. Season with salt and a generous amount of black pepper and cook, without stirring, until the bottom is browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir occasionally, until cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes more.

  4. Remove and discard the orange rind from the chile oil (if desired). Off the heat, add the peanut & chile oil mixture to the chicken and stir, scraping up any browned bits from the pan. Add the noodles and toss fully coating the noodles and chicken.

  5. Return everything to the pan and heat until hot. Top with chives and serve at once.
