This is a quick and easy weeknight dinner that can be made in 30 minutes or less. I still remember the first time I saw a noodle dish with a peanut sauce on it. I have to admit it intrigued me. It did seem a little strange to me but decided to try it and fell in love with it with right away. I was out at the time and every time I went to that restaurant I ordered it. Then a friend sent me this recipe and I tried it right away. I was amazed at how easy and quick it was to make.

Don’t let the long list of ingredients stop you from making this. If you notice many of the ingredients that are in the sauce are with the chicken also. When you make dishes like this you should assemble all of the ingredients first before starting to make your dish. It will then come all together in about 10 minutes.

      Totally agree Marion! I have to assemble it first because it goes together so fast if I didn’t I’d never find it in time or grate it in time. LOL

    What type of noodles do you use? This looks wonderful and I will be making this as I have all ingredients but not sure on the noodles.
