Dinner is served

I made sesame noodles with broccoli and Gardein mandarin chicken. I prepared the sesame sauce using a sesame noodles recipe on Allrecipes.com and I prepared the "chicken" while the noodles were cooking.
Bon appetit!


Sesame noodles
1 (16 ounce) package linguine pasta
6 cloves garlic, minced
6 tablespoons sugar
6 tablespoons safflower oil
6 tablespoons rice vinegar
6 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 teaspoons chili sauce
6 green onions, sliced
1 teaspoon sesame seeds, toasted
Directions

Bring a pot of lightly salted water to boil. Add pasta, and cook until al dente, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain, and transfer to a serving bowl.
Meanwhile, place a saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in garlic, sugar, oil, vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, and chili sauce. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves. Pour sauce over linguine, and toss to coat. Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds.

Mock chicken:
Fry both sides of the chicken for about 4 minutes on each side. After both sides are cooked, add the sauce from the Gardein packet.

Brocolli:
Steam bag broccoli in microwave. Once the broccoli is done, add sea salt, pepper, and garlic to taste.

Coat noodes with sauce, add in broccoli and mock chicken. Toss and serve!
