Spicy Sesame-Soy Rice Noodles

This is such a simple and tasty side that I threw together the day after I made the Balsamic Glazed Chicken. I had leftover cooked rice noodles so I decided to reuse them in another dish.


  • Cooked pad thai rice noodles - about half of a package
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/4 c chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (less or more depending on how much heat you like)
  • Handful of chopped cilantro
  • Heat the olive and sesame oils in a large saute pan or wok over medium high heat
  • Add the garlic; saute 1-2 minutes
  • Add the noodles and toss for just a few seconds
  • Add the soy sauce, broth, and red pepper flakes and toss
  • Stir in the cilantro, or us it as a garnish
I think that took all of 5 minutes. Even if you didn't have cooked noodles on-hand, they only take about 6-7 minutes, so this dish is still under 15 minutes from start to finish. And delicious!
