Peanut Noodles With Chicken
Plus+ 9 Per Serving
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup smooth natural peanut butter
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 1/2 teaspoons chile-garlic sauce, or to taste
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
8 ounces whole-wheat spaghetti
1 12-ounce bag fresh vegetable medley, such as carrots,
broccoli, snow peas
1. Put a large pot of water on to boil for cooking pasta.
2. Meanwhile, place chicken in a skillet or saucepan and add enough water to cover; bring
to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer gently until cooked through and no longer
pink in the middle, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board. When cool
enough to handle, shred into bite-size strips.
3. Whisk peanut butter, soy sauce, garlic, chile-garlic sauce and ginger in a large bowl.
4. Cook pasta in the boiling water until not quite tender, about 1 minute less than specified
in the package directions. Add vegetables and cook until the pasta and vegetables are just
tender, 1 minute more. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid. Rinse the pasta and
vegetables with cool water to refresh. Stir the reserved cooking liquid into the peanut
sauce; add the pasta, vegetables and chicken; toss well to coat. Serve warm or chilled.
