Cold Sesame Noodles with Chicken and Cucumbers

Time: 30 minutes

Simple Subs: For a vegetarian meal, replace the chicken with packaged baked or smoked tofu, cut into cubes. Try an equal amount of soba (buckwheat noodles) in place of udon.

Serve with Baby Spinach Salad: Combine 8 cups baby spinach, ½ cup thinly sliced red onion, and ½ cup quartered radishes. Whisk together 1 ½ tablespoons rice vinegar, 2 teaspoons canola oil, 1 teaspoon sugar, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper. Drizzle dressing over salad; toss to coat.
