Asian Chicken-Noodle Salad With Snap Peas (recipe by Bon Appetit, June 2010)

The mango-sesame dressing in this summery noodle salad is delicious, and it has definitely piqued my interest for other uses. I’m happy to have the recipe in my repertoire. I did have trouble at the grocery store locating the key ingredient, Major Grey’s mango chutney. I was in the correct aisle, but it was located near the ketchup and ham glazes–who knew? The dressing recipe calls for 3/4 cup of chutney, which is precisely one 9 ounce bottle. Some other reviewers thought the dressing is “so good you can drink it”–it really is!

I opted to pan fry the chicken rather than grill it, which worked out quite well. I think less sugar snap peas and more udon would be better.
