 and pepper in a shallow bowl. Add chicken cubes and mix to coat, cover
 and marinate in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.
 
 Soak the cellophane noodles for 20 minutes in enough water to cover and
 then drain and gently squeeze out extra moisture with a dish towel. Cut
 into 2-inch pieces.
 
 Preheat broiler. Drain the chicken from the marinade (discard the
 marinade), place in a baking dish, and broil for 10 minutes or until

 shake. Line plates with lettuce arrange noodles on top and place the
 chicken, tomatoes and cucumber cubes over noodles. Drizzle dressing on
 top then sprinkle scallions and peanuts over all.  Makes 4 servings.
 
 Note: Look for cellophane noodles and Thai fish sauce in the ethnic
 foods aisle of the supermarket or in an Asian market. Feel free to
 substitute shrimp, beef or tofu for the chicken.
