  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1-1/4 lb/625 g)
  • 2 tablespoons sake
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 14 oz Japanese wheat noodles
  • 14 oz Chinese wheat noodles
  • 14 oz linguine
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 cup julienned carrots
  • 1/2 English cucumber julienned
  • 1 cup fresh bean sprouts
  • 1/2 cup shelled edamame (soy beans), rinsed
Sesame Mustard Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup toasted white sesame seeds

  • 2/3 cups mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup prepared hot mustard (such as Keen's)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sodium-reduced soy sauce

Method

Place rack or steamer in wok or large shallow pan; pour in enough water to come 1 inch (2.5 cm) below rack. Cover and bring to boil; reduce heat to medium-high.

Place chicken on plate; sprinkle with sake and salt. Place on rack; cover and steam until no longer pink inside, about 15 minutes. Remove from steamer; drain and let cool.

Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling water, cook noodles according to package instructions, about 10 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold running water. Drain well; shake. Set aside to air-dry for 10 minutes. Toss with sesame oil.

Sesame Mustard Sauce: In food processor, finely grind sesame seeds with sugar. Add mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar and soy sauce; process until smooth.

Divide noodles among 4 bowls. Slice chicken on bias and arrange on one side of bowl. Arrange carrots, cucumber, bean sprouts and edamame in piles around noodles on other side. Serve with sauce.
