In pot of boiling water, cook snow peas for 1 minute or until tender-crisp. Drain and refresh under cold water; pat dry. (Make-ahead: Wrap in tea towel and refrigerate for up to 8 hours.)

Brush chicken with oil; cook on greased grill over medium-high heat, turning once, for 12 to 15 minutes or until no longer pink inside. Let cool slightly; slice thinly on diagonal.

Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook noodles for 5 minutes or until tender but firm. Drain and refresh under cold water; drain again. (Make-ahead: Place in bowl of cold water in refrigerator for up to 2 hours; drain).

Dressing: whisk together mayonnaise, water, tahini, tamari, sesame oil and hot pepper sauce. (Make-ahead: cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day).

In bowl, toss together dressing, noodles, bean sprouts, peanuts, onion, chives and snow peas. In middle of each plate drizzle about 1 teaspoon (5 mL) tamari; mound noodle mixture on top. Fan chicken around noodle mixture.
