Cooking Instructions

 Cut scallion into 3-inch lengths
 Julienne cucumber
 Coarsely chop roasted peanuts
 Finely chop scallion
 Chop cilantro
 Finely mince garlic
 Poach the chicken breast.
 Fill a small pot with enough water to submerge the chicken breast (but don't add the chicken yet), and add the ginger and scallion.
 When the water comes to a boil, add the chicken, and bring to a boil again.
 Immediately cover the pot, shut off the heat, and let the chicken sit in the water for 22-25 minutes.
 In the meantime, prepare the rest of the ingredients.
 Prepare the sauce by combining all the sauce ingredients in a bowl.
 Drain and shred the chicken.
 Cook your choice of noodle by following the package instructions.
 Remember, no one likes soggy overcooked noodles, so keep an eye on them or set a timer! Drain the noodles and rinse thoroughly under cold water.
 If you're not ready to eat them right away, mix in about 1-2 tsps of oil to prevent the noodles from sticking together.
 Assemble the noodles by mixing the following together: noodles, shredded chicken, julienned cucumber, bean sprouts, chopped peanuts, scallion and cilantro.
 Pour the sauce over everything and toss together.
