Ramen Chicken Salad

I got this salad recipe from my little sister and I absolutely love it! I not only enjoy eating it, but I like to make it as well. It is super easy, and I almost always have all the ingredients on hand. It is great to bring to showers or pot-lucks, but I have also enjoyed preparing it for dinner for my husband and I. Just pair it with some French bread and you have yourself a yummy, fast and fresh tasting dinner!

3 Tbs. butter
1 pkg. oriental-flavor ramen noodles *
2 Tbs. sesame Seeds (optional)
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. white vinegar
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1/2 tsp. pepper
2 c. cut up cooked chicken
1/2 c. dry roasted peanuts
1/2 c. sliced green onions
16 oz. bag coleslaw mix

Melt butter in skillet over medium heat. Stir in seasoning from noodles. Break block of noodles into bite-size pieces over skillet; stir noodles into butter mixture. Cook two minutes, stirring constantly; stir in sesame seeds. Cook about two more minutes, stirring constantly, until noodles are golden brown.

Mix sugar, vinegar, oil and pepper in large bowl (large enough for the rest of the ingredients). Add noodle mixture, chicken and coleslaw mix, and toss well.

*I have yet to find oriental flavor ramen noodles at my grocery store, so I always substitute with chicken flavor and it turns out just as yummy tasting!
