Just wait until you experience the contrast of the warm vinaigrette on this cold noodle salad. You’ll serve the satisfying fresh noodles with tender chicken and the veggie goodness of sliced baby bok choy and cool spiralized carrots. (They’re particularly fun to eat!) The vinaigrette mixes soy sauce with rice vinegar, nutty sesame oil, roasted garlic and a very yummy spice blend that recalls Beijing street food. Not bad, for a weekday dinner made in a flash.

Cook the chicken
Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. In a medium pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with ½ the spice blend and S&P. Add the chicken breasts* to the pan and cook, partially covered, 6 to 8 minutes per side (2 to 3 minutes per side for chicken fillets), until cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board, leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan. Reserve the pan. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before slicing it against the grain.

Boil the noodles
While the chicken cooks, add the noodles to the pot of boiling water; stir gently to separate. Cook, 2 to 3 minutes, until just al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Drain thoroughly; rinse under cold water and toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking. Spread out on a plate to continue to cool.

Mise en place
While the chicken continues to cook, pick the cilantro leaves off the stems; discard the stems. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops.

In the reserved pan of fond, add the toasted sesame oil, garlic and white bottoms of the scallions; season with the remaining spice blend. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the rice vinegar and soy sauce. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until heated through; season with S&P to taste.
