Make

  1. Heat a wok or saute pan over medium-high heat. Add oil. Use a slotted spoon to transfer chicken to hot pan. (Reserve marinade.) Saute until chicken is nearly cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes. Add remaining marinade and cook until marinade reduces and coats chicken, ~2 minutes.
  2. Whisk dressing and sprinkle green onions over the top.
  3. Assemble salads by combining lettuce, noodles, carrots, cucumbers and chicken in serving bowls. Top with mint and peanuts. Pour dressing over salad just before serving. Enjoy!
