Prep Time 5 mins
Cooking Time 5 mins





  1. Make the sauce by mixing all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl until combined.
  2. Julienne cucumber.
  3. Cook noodles according to package instructions. Drain noodles immediately once cooked, and rinse until cold running water.
  4. Transfer noodles to serving bowls. Top each one with half the shredded chicken, cucumber, cilantro and sauce. Finish with a sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds. Enjoy!


  • For the chicken, simply shred any leftover rotisserie chicken or poached chicken breast. Or you can make it from scratch following the instructions for shredded chicken here.
  • I used egg noodles but almost any noodles or long pasta will work for this recipe.
  • If you cannot find seedless cucumber, you may use normal cucumber - simply remove the seeds before julienning. You can of course leave the seeds in too if that’s your preference!
  • Feel free to substitute maple syrup with any other sweetener of choice to make this dish sugar-free.
