Step 1

Bring 4 quarts water to boil in large pot.

Pat chicken dry with paper towels.

Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat until just smoking. Cook chicken until no longer pink, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to plate.

Add pasta to boiling water and cook until just beginning to soften, about 8 minutes.

Add asparagus to pot and cook until bright green and pasta is al dente, about 4 minutes.

Reserve 1 cup cooking water, drain pasta and asparagus, and return to pot.

Whisk peanut butter, vinegar, oyster sauce, chili-garlic sauce, ginger, sesame oil, and ½ cup pasta cooking water in bowl until smooth.
