What You'll Need

  • 1 (12-ounce) package bowtie pasta
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce

What to Do

  1. Prepare pasta according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, heat peanut oil. Sauté sesame seeds and garlic 3 to 5 minutes, or until the seeds are golden brown. Add soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, and vegetable oil and continue to cook over medium-low heat 2 more minutes. Stir in peas and carrots and cook 5 to 6 minutes, or until crisp-tender. Add chicken and salt and continue to cook 5 additional minutes, or until heated through.

I just made this tonight and I was a little confused about the amount (3/4 cup) of oil, but I always follow a recipe the first time i make it so I used the specified amt. of oil and all other specified amt's of the recipe and the outcome was horrible. The taste of the sauce was a little too sweet (1/2 cup sugar) and had this oil floating on top of it. My family and I always take apart the recipe while we are eating it. They liked the sauce minus some sugar and oil. What I would like to know is Is there a reason for that amount of oil and sugar? We always give a recipe a second chance if we see something good in it, after that we decide whether it becomes a "keeper or a throw away" recipe.

Hi there! In this recipe, the Test Kitchen made sure to include plenty of the homemade sauce. The Test Kitchen says that you can reduce the amount of sugar and oil in this recipe by simply cutting the amount of sugar and oil in half. Enjoy!

The 3/4 cup of oil does seem like too much. Will have to try this tho! Yumm!

Is the 3/4 cup vegetable oil right? It looks and sounds like a lot of oil. Could you use less or substitute something else?

I saw this pasta dish on your TV spot. My husband & I love pasta & stirfry. Want to try on my family when they come to visit. Substitute suggestions for chicken allergy?

Howard, What would be good to serve with this if you use this recipe as a side dish?

Some szechuan stir-fried vegetables and crispy fried won tons.
