This is also good warm. I made a double batch: half to eat warm at dinner and half to chill for lunch the next day. Very tasty. I can't seem to find hot chilli oil anywhere, so I substituted a smaller amount of Tabasco sauce. EDIT: Finally located some chilli oil, and the recipe is even better using it (the full amount called for in the recipe). I've found that the chicken needs to cook a bit longer, closer to 25 minutes. - 21 Jul 2008

Used different ingredients. Outstanding...it was all gone; I made a double portion to share with friends. I had no peanut oil or tahini so I used canola oil and peanut butter. I used the flat 'linguine' type Chinese noodles. It can be heated if you prefer it that way.... - 21 Jul 2008

Used different ingredients. Okay this was great, but I had to make a lot of substitutions. My tahini was a little dried out so I used peanut butter. I used udon noodles, and chilli sauce instead of chilli oil. Minor changes, but I LOVED the end result. - 21 Jul 2008
