Peanut Noodles with Chicken

I'm a huge fan of all Asian type foods and who doesn't love some peanut noodles?? I found the originial recipe at and made a few modifications. The list of ingredients seems kind of long but don't be put off you are making 3 things and them combining them all. It actually came together pretty quickly.
  • 1 cup Better Than Chicken no-chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoons agave
  • 2 tablespoons Tamari
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1 package Morning Star Chik'n Strips
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha chili sauce (more or less to taste)
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 5 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 tablespoon Tamari
  • 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 8 ounces thin noodles (spaghetti, rice, whatever you have)
  • 3/4 cup green onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 1/4 cups cup shredded broccoli slaw 
  • 2 tablespoons chopped peanuts 
  • 1 lime, sliced 

For the peanut sauce: Combine broth, peanut butter, sriracha, agave, soy sauce, ginger, and 2 cloves grated garlic in a small saucepan and simmer over medium-low heat stirring occasionally until sauce becomes smooth and well blended, about 5-10 minutes. Set aside.

Boil water for the noodles cook pasta according to package instructions.

Place chicken in a bowl with salt and pepper, sriracha, lime, garlic, ginger and soy sauce. Stir well.

Heat a large skillet or wok until hot. Add oil and sauté chicken mixture on medium-high heat until cooked, about 2-3 minutes; remove from heat and set aside.

In the same skillet that you used for the chicken, add crushed garlic, scallions, carrots, broccoli slaw and salt, sauté until tender crisp, about 1-2 minutes. (Forgot to take a pic of this step.)

Drain noodles and toss with peanut sauce and additional broth if needed to loosen the sauce.

When chicken is cooked, toss with noodles.

Divide noodles/chicken mixture between 6 bowls, top with sauteed vegetables, and chopped peanuts (or you can toss everything together) and garnish with cilantro and lime wedges.  Enjoy!
