For Sauce:

MAKING

2. In a pot of unsalted boiling water, cook noodles until al dente. Scoop out some of the starchy cooking water, just in case you need it to thin the sauce, and drain. Rinse well in cold water. Set aside.

3. In a large bowl, combine pepper, scallion, noodles, and chicken.

4. Pour the cooled sauce on top and mix well. Taste and adjust with more soy sauce, honey, or lime if needed.

5. Top with the spring mix lettuce.
