3/4 cup coarsely crushed chow mien noodles
½ cup + 2 tablespoons, crushed butter-style crackers
¼ cup butter, melted
3 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
4 large eggs
1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
1 teaspoon fish sauce
½ teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
¼ cup finely sliced green onions, bulbs and light green parts
½ cup shredded carrots
1 ½ cup shredded cooked chicken (white meat)
1 12-ounce bottle Well Dressed Food Spicy Asian Peanut Sauce (divided)
Remaining Well Dressed Food Spicy Asian Peanut Sauce (more if desired)
½ cup coarsely chopped roasted, shelled peanuts
8 green onions, trimmed to about 2-inches of stalk
In medium bowl, combine the crushed chow mien noodles, crushed crackers and melted butter. Press mixture onto the bottom and 1-inch up the sides of a 9-inch springform pan. Set aside
In large work bowl of electric mixer, beat the cream cheese at high speed until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Next add the sriracha sauce, fish sauce and dried red pepper flakes and blend until combined. By hand, stir in the green onions, carrots and chicken.
Pour ½ cream cheese mixture into the prepared pan. Pour 1/3 cup of the Spicy Asian Peanut Sauce around this layer of the cheesecake mixture in a spiral design; top with remaining cream cheese mixture. Pour remaining 1/3 cup of Spicy Asian Peanut Sauce over top layer of cheesecake in another spiral design; gently cut through all layers with a butter knife or narrow spatula to create a swirled effect.
Bake at 350 F for 10 minutes; then reduce the heat to 300 F and bake for an additional 1 hour or until set in the center. Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack. Cover and chill for at least 8 hours.
To serve, remove sides of springform pan; slice into 8 servings. Place each slice on a serving plate lightly drizzled with a portion of the remaining Spicy Asian Peanut Sauce (or drizzle the plate if you prefer). Garnish each slice with a 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped peanuts and an artfully cut green onion stalk.

We love blending the flavors and spices of different cultures to create something new. Our Spicy Asian Peanut Sauce is an exciting fusion of the East, West and the North Country that will add a new dimension to your favorite recipes.
Our creamy smooth, all-natural peanut sauce is infused with fresh ginger and roasted garlic. And for balance and a hint of sweetness, we added a touch of 100% pure New York State maple syrup.
This versatile sauce is great for dipping and is especially delicious with grilled meats and roast pork. It’s superb tossed with warm noodles and can turn an ordinary salad into something exotic. We love using it to create our Asian Chicken Salad… a new favorite for our guests.
