1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 teaspoons low sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

12 ounces bow tie pasta (about 4 cups)
2 cups chopped cooked chicken breast meat (to save time use a store bought rotisserie chicken)
1 cup shredded carrot
3/4 cup roughly chopped cilantro
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onion
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
1/2 cup slivered almonds or peanut pieces

Mix together dressing ingredients in a jar or bowl with tight fitting lid. Shake well and set aside.
Boil bow tie pasta for 10 minutes or about one minute shy of the package directions. Pour cooked pasta into a colander and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process and cool down the pasta. Drain well and transfer to a large bowl.
Mix in remaining salad ingredients. Give dressing a good shake and pour over the salad. Mix well.
