Chicken Stir Fry Noodles in Peanut Sauce
The humble peanut butter is sooo much more than a spread on our breakfast toast. Some things I can think of include....
1) A dip for veges
2) Muffins and cupcakes!
3) Can't forget it can be used to bake a cake too
4) Oh, what about a sauce for satay chicken skewers?
6) Peanut butter sauce on ice-cream?
7) AH! Peanut butter ice-cream?
8) Eat from the jar?
Inspired by Good Taste magazine recently, I used chunky peanut butter as a sauce in my stir fry noodle dish. It was sooo good that I freeze a batch and made another batch a few weeks later. Kraft has a low fat peanut butter version which is less smooth than their usual one but I love it all the same.
Chicken Stir Fry Noodles in Peanut Sauce (Serves 4-6)
1 packet of noodles of your choice ( I bought skinny yellow noodles which is named "Singapore noodles-even though there is really no such noodles named after Singapore IN Singapore)
500 grams of chicken thigh meat diced
half a cabbage shreddedd
1 carrot diced
1 chilli chopped
1 tablespoon of minced garlic
1 cup of chopped mushrooms
1/2 cup of peanut butter
1 tablespoon of soya sauce
In a jar, whisk peanut butter till smooth.
Cook noodles per directions of your pack (I blanched mine). In a wok or deep pan, fry garlic and chilli till it smells oh so good. Then brown chicken. Toss in the veges. After around 4 minutes, or when veges are nearly cooked, toss noodles through. Add peanut paste and soya. Taste to see if it requires more seasoning.
If you like, toss some peanuts through. I served with with a sprinkle of sesame seed.
