Thai-Peanut Chicken

Thai-Peanut Chicken receipe by marissabaker.wordpress.comThis recipe starts out just like the Mushroom-Herb chicken I posted last week, but the end result is very different. We all loved the flavor. I thought it might be similar to my other rice noodle dish, but this one is stronger and more tangy. The final sauce looks so reddish it appears tomato based, and the carrots almost seem to disappear.

    • I use Asian Creations’ “Thai Kitchen” brand. They do stick for me sometimes, and I’ve had better luck with their noodle “nests” than with the shorter stir-fry noodles. You need to stir them a few times while they are in the hot water and be very careful not to over-cook them. I’ve also read that tossing them in a little sesame oil before serving can keep them from sticking. Hope this helps!
