Beware this recipe makes a lot. I had cut this recipe in half and there was still so much leftover. The prep time is really pretty quick if your chicken is already cooked, no where near 45 minutes to prep. Other than cutting the recipe in half I added a little extra brown sugar as well as a bit of sweet soya sauce with the regular soya sauce. I just found it needed a bit more sweetness that is why I added extra. But I still found it to be missing something, just not sure what. It was a flavorful salad anyways and we enjoyed it for lunch with my egg rolls. Thanks for sharing your recipe Gingerbear.

I loved this recipe!! I made it for a potluck and many people commented on how good it was and wanted the recipe. I used oriental rice sticks for noodles and chili a tablespoon of chili paste in place of the chili oil. I will certainly be using this recipe in the future.

I made this exactly as directed and thought it was very bland. I took it to a pot luck at work and it barely got touched - no one asked for the recipe or even commented on it. I ended up throwing more than half of it away and I'm kind of mad because I specifically went out and bought the rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, chili oil, sesame seeds and fresh ginger

This was a really great recipe! Today was the first day of the year we were able to put the top down on my car, so it only seemed natural to serve a summertime dinner! Everyone enjoyed it, and my husband even had three helpings! Then requested that i make it camping this year. Thanks for a keeper!

This was an awesome salad! I added a little more brown sugar and tweaked the dressing til it was perfect before adding it on. Will be making this again.... would be great with a picnic lunch too!

This was really good with leftover sliced steak. I didn't have any sesame oil or sesame seeds but it was still very tasty. Even my DH who thinks every meal has to have a hot chunk of meat, preferably with mashed potatoes and gravy, liked this on a hot summer day.

This is a very flavorful salad. It is even better the next day. I followed the recipe to the letter, but used green pepper and sweet onion as that is what I had. I, too used hot sauce as I did not have hot chili oil. A very nice change for a pasta salad. Thanks, Carole in Orlando

Very tasty salad! I did not have any bell pepper, so I added a little chopped jalapeno pepper. I also threw in some cilantro and jicama. My DH and 19 year old son wolfed it down. This is a keeper!! Thanks Gingerbear!
