Seasame Peanut Noodles with Chicken

Here is the original recipe that inspired this meal.  I really wanted to make it but with an end-of-the-week-fridge I had very few of the ingredients…

OK.  So to start you need to get your rice noodles soaking ( I love these- GLUTEN FREE and they make the Asian-y dishes taste so much more authentic!).  I used 1/2 the package of the above noodles.  I put them in a big mixing bowl and covered them in HOT tap water.  Let them hang out for 25 minutes until they are kind of bendy but not completely done then drain them and rinse with cold water.

While the soaking is happening mix up the Peanut Sauce and set aside.  Be sure to taste the sauce after you’ve mixed it well and add more of what you need 🙂

PEANUT SAUCE:

  • 3 cloves Garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Chunky Peanut Butter
  • 6 Tablespoons Low Sodium Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons (maybe a little more) Rice Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon (to your taste) Hot Chile Sauce
  • ¼ cup Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon (to 2 Tablespoons) Toasted Sesame Oil (sold In The Asian Aisle)

Now pull out your wok and spray with cooking spray.  Season your chick with some garlic salt or whatever you like and cook it up.  When it’s almost finished throw in the veggies and cook until tender.  You  could definitely use more veggies but this was all I had 🙂

  • Chicken (I used 5 tenders cut into bite sized pieces)
  • 1/2 chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/2 chopped red bell pepper

Now throw the noodles and sauce in the wok and toss until the noodles are done and everything is saucy.  Just a few minutes.  Sprinkle with chopped green onions and serve!  This is totally kid friendly if you don’t use too much spice :-)Also a great Gluten Free option if you use GF Soy Sauce or a substitute like Bragg Liquid Aminos!
