5 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tbs Red Wine Vinegar
2 Tbs Brown Sugar
1 Cup Natural Peanut Butter
½ Cup Soy Sauce
1/2 Cup Sesame Oil
2-4 Tbs Hot Chilli Oil (depending on desired spiciness)
1 lb Pasta (any kind you want)
Grilled Chicken Breast, chopped (1 lb or more)
5-6 scallions, chopped
½ Cup Sesame Seeds
Cook Pasta until tender. Toss the first 8 ingredients (sauce ingredients) into a blender and blend until it is one consistency. The sauce should be thick, but still liquid. Combine sauce, Pasta, Scallions and Chicken and mix well. Shred cucumber on top.
Can be eaten immediately (warm) or chilled, depending on personal preference.
Makes 6 servings (2 oz of pasta per serving)
Calories - 650/serv
Protein – 45g/serv (mostly from chicken, some from pasta and peanut butter)
Carbs – 50g/serv (mostly from pasta)
Total Fat – 30g/serv (from peanut butter and sesame oil)
Makes for an excellent post-workout meal when the demand for carbohydrates and protein is greatest.
One great thing about this recipe is that it can be easily be tailored to fit your specific macro nutrient needs. Want more protein? Add more Chicken. Want less fat, reduce Sesame Oil used. Concerned about carb quality? Try using whole grain pasta.
