 second boil; boil for 1 minute.  Drain in a colander, then rinse thoroughly
 under cold water.  Drain. set aside.
 
  Coarsely chop the peanuts in a food processor; remove 1/4 cup and set aside.
  Add the ginger, garlic, salt and sugar to remaining peanuts in the processor
  and process to a coarse mixture.  Add sesame and peanut oils, the soy sauce,
  lime juice and chili oil; process for 1 minute, or until smooth. Stir in the
  water; the mixture should have a thin, creamy consistency. Add a little more
  water, if necessary.  To serve, toss the noodles with the sauce.  Add the
  green onions, chicken and green beans.
