Peanut Chicken Soba Salad

Whenever I need a quick salad or side dish, I go to myrecipes.com. I just type in a keyword and I always find a recipe that I want to make.
The recipes are rated, like many other sites, so I can go and read what people thought about a certain recipe before I make it.

I chose this salad because I needed to take something to a get together that could be served cold and still taste good.
I also chose it because I didn't have a lot of time to prepare and wanted something that I already had all the ingredients for that I could throw together. The fact that most people had given it 5 stars on the ratings helped give me the extra little push to go ahead and make it.

The method for cooking the chicken could also be used for the Chicken Nachos that I posted yesterday.
I left out the red onion and used sesame oil instead of peanut oil.
I also used whole wheat angel hair pasta because I didn't have any soba noodles on hand.

I ate this at the get together and really enjoyed it. The bowl was clean when the whole thing was over so I suppose that means everyone else liked it too!
