Ingredients
  

  • 8 oz linguine
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 6 tbsp peanut butter chunky
  • 1/4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 6 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp hot chili oil
  • 2 whole chicken breast boneless, skinned and cooked chicken breast halves
  • 5 tbsp sesame seeds toasted
  • 1 lb asparagus thin, trimmed
  • 1 whole cucumber halved, seeded and diced into ¼-inch pieces

Instructions
 

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the linguine, cook at a rolling boil until just tender. Drain, rinse under cold water, drain again and set aside in a large mixing bowl.
  • Place the garlic, vinegar, brown sugar, peanut butter and soy sauce in a food processor. Process for 1 minute. With the motor running, slowly add the sesame and hot chili oils through the feed tube and process until well-blended.
  • Shred the chicken into 2-inch julienne strips, and then toss with the linguine. Add the sauce plus 4 tbsp of the sesame seeds and toss to coat well.
  • Cut the asparagus on the diagonal into 1-inch lengths. Blanch in a sauce pan of boiling water for 1 minute. Drain, rinse under cold water and pat dry.
  • Place the linguine and chicken in a large, flat serving bowl and arrange the asparagus on top. Sprinkle with cucumber and remaining 1 tbsp sesame seeds.
  • Serve at room temperature.
