Spicy Chicken Peanut Noodles.

As I lazed around the house yesterday, I did discover a great new recipe for Spicy Chicken Peanut Noodles.  I got the recipe off Tasty Kitchen, as I tried to figure out what to make with chicken, cucumbers, a red pepper, and leftover parsley in my fridge. This was a great meal after my long run because it incorporated just the right amount of protein, veggies, and carbs. And it tasted pretty amazing. I’ve never made a peanut sauce before and it is delicious! I ate my bowl of pasta a little warm, but this dish would be good served cold too. In fact, this is an excellent potluck meal.

It does have a lot of ingredients, but it’s pretty quick to prepare. You could also prepare things ahead of time and then assemble later.

For the chicken:

Add the peanut oil to a bowl.

Add some brown sugar.

A little bit of soy sauce.

Pour into pan with the cut-up chicken breasts. Cook chicken until thoroughly done (no pink centers). Set aside.

For the spaghetti:

Cook some spaghetti according to directions on box. Drain and return to pot, set aside.

For the cucumber sambal:

Dice a cucumber, red pepper, and scallions. Add to a small bowl along with 3 T rice wine vinegar.

Add 1 tsp. red pepper flakes for a little heat. Mix together and set aside.

For the peanut sauce:

In small saucepan, add the creamy peanut butter and chicken broth.

Add some brown sugar.

Rice wine vinegar.

Fresh lime juice.

Smells amazing!

Chopped fresh ginger.

More soy sauce.

and a little bit of Thai chili sauce. Let simmer for 1-2 minutes. Cool and set aside.

Preparing the Spicy Chicken Peanut Noodles:

Add the noodles to a large bowl.

Top with cooked chicken.

Add the cucumber sambal.

Pour in the peanut sauce and add black pepper. Toss to combine.

I helped myself to a large bowl and added more fresh parsley.
