  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a small skillet over medium-low heat. Stir in sesame seeds and cook until golden brown. Remove from heat. Stir in soy sauce, vinegar, and sugar. Pour dressing into a sealable container, and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together pasta, cooked chicken, and 1 cup dressing (reserve remaining dressing). Cover salad, and refrigerate at least 6 hours.
  4. Directly before serving, stir in parsley, green onions, and spinach. Toss with remaining dressing, if desired.

This was pretty good, especially served cold the next day; I had a bunch of random ingredients and no clue what to do with them, and this was perfect for cleaning up my fridge! Thanks.
