I also made this as a stir fry, adding peanut butter to the dressing as suggested. It was absolutely brilliant and will definately make again. I used frozen spinach leaves as I had no cabbage equivalent, but it was still yummy.

Absolutely delicious recipe. I marinate the chicken in olive oil and juice of a lime (or half a lemon). Stir fry the vegetables carrots, green beans, pepper and a little spinach, cook the noodles and add all together with the peanut butter dressing as per another comment. Filling and healthy.

Had this tonight with the peanut butter, absolutely yum. Added some honey though as it was a bit too tangy for me. Looking forward to the leftovers for my lunch!

I left the chicken out and served this noodle salad with the Thai chicken cakes recipe from this website. Both were wonderful and I was surprised how good this tasted cold the next day for lunch. Will make again, with or without the chicken.

made this reciepe many times , a midweek fravorite. however i treat it as a stir fry rather than a salad. i coat the chicken in some thai 7 spice add chicken in pieces to the wok for 1 min , then add all the veg for 1min then noodles to heat threw throw over the dressing and serve. it is easy to make this way rather than cooking the chicken seperate etc.

Made this recepie tonight. Used up Sunday roast chicken leftovers, didn't have coriander, orange juice instead of lime juice. Turned out nice and tasty.
Rated as 4 only because the recepie could have been a bit clearer and more descriptive.

We love this recipe so much we try and have it once a week, its really tasty and healthy and you feel good eating it.
We tend to make this dish after we've had roast chicken to use up the leftovers; we use white cabbage instead of chinese greens and add more chilli, its still good....even my mum loved it.
Looking forward to trying it with the peanut butter in the dressing!!

I made 2 lots of dressing and marinated the chicken in 1 lot (with some honey mixed in too) for a couple of hours before cooking.

I also quickly stir fried the veg with some fresh garlic and ginger to make it a cooked rather than raw meal and it was fantastic! Very fresh and everyone loved it!

This is our favourite week night dinner recipe- it looks simple and is easy to make but it really is packed full of flavour. Even though we cook it often I'm always pleased when we are having this!

Made this with my brother and absolutely loved it!!
I added more chilli to it-which added a bit more zing to it!!
Great recipe.

TO JAZZ UP THE DRESSING ADD 1 TBSP OF CRUNCHY PEANUT BUTTER AND LOOSEN MIXTURE WITH HOT WATER INSTEAD OF COLD. MAKES A WONDERFUL SATAY SALAD DRESSING THAT WILL KEEP IN FRIDGE FOR UP TO A WEEK, IF YOU HAVE THE WILLPOWER TO RESIST FOR THAT LONG!!!!
