Not as excited about it as the others. I love all the ingredients, but it was still way too overpowering. I may cook it again with lots of variation.

Glad I read all of the comments, even though it took awhile. I dramatically decreased the amount of sesame oil, especially after opening the bottle I bought and getting a whiff of how strong it was! Used angel hair pasta, and replaced a lot of the oil and some of the soy sauce, just to cut down on the sodium a bit, with chicken stock. I stir fried the chicken, which I sliced up first, then marinated, in Pam, instead of more sesame oil. I put the sesame oil in the sauce, an in the chicken to marinate, but not more than a TBL. I was fantastic, and I can't wait to eat the leftovers!

This was fantastic! What can I add that hasn't already been said befoe? I sliced the chicken breasts while half frozen then marinated them. Definately a keeper.

I followed the recipe perfectly and sorry, Mirj, but this wasn't to my taste. I will say, however, that my daughter & husband enjoyed it. Personally, I found it a little bland. Sorry, I won't be making this again.

This was very good and much easier than I thought it would be when I first glanced at the recipe. I think next time I'll add some garlic and crushed red pepper to the sauce you pour over the noodles. Thanks!

This recipe is a golden find. It is so quick and easy to make and tastes outstanding. It is very similar to a Korean dish named Pulgogi (which is made with beef). I sliced the chicken before marinating as well. Excellent! Thank you very much for posting it.

This was not a favorite at our house tonight. Picky children said yucky. Had to make them Mac N Cheese out of a box instead. Hubby and I thought chicken was good, but not our cup of tea for the noodles. Will probably never make this dinner again. Sorry! At least we tried!

I thought this dish was great! The only problem I had was that I had never sauteed with sesame oil because it burns quickly. I went against my judgment and used it. I ended up taking the chicken out of the frying pan half way through cooking b/c it was burning. Ended up just using vegetable oil. Still turned out wonderful!!

Loved the chicken!!! wasnt crazy about the noodles- they needed more kick, a little too oily, i think the sesame oil needs to be cut back a bit----but the marinade was great!

The timetable of this recipe is a bit off for my schedule, so I was nervous about making it. I put the chicken in the marinade before work. The plan was to make the noodles and then the chicken, even though I hated to not let the noodles sit the recommended time. Due to an accident, I ended up at home, so I did make the noodles about 3 hours before dinner. I didn't change anything except to add extra onions so I could use up the whole bunch. Everyone seemed to love it, and ate quite a bit, but I was asked to serve the noodles hot next time. I also only made 12 oz. noodles (the first 12 oz. pkg. I've seen in a long time!) but the sauce would have also covered 16 oz. I think I shall halve it & only cook 8 oz. next time, to serve 4 - I felt the chicken was already perfect for 4 servings.
