Chicken & Pasta in Peanut Sauce

The first time I used a bottled sauce and did not like it but then I found Sharon123's recipe for Peanut Sauce and fell in love! Chinese Peanut Sauce is what I used but use whatever peanut sauce that fits your taste buds. I do know that a good quality peanut sauce can make or break this recipe. Nice simple meal to put on the table even during a busy week.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Add broccoli and sweet pepper during the last 3 minutes of cooking and then drain well. Return pasta & veggies to pan and set aside.
  2. Cut chicken into strips or large cubes and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. In large skillet heat olive oil over medium high heat. Cook chicken in hot oil 8 to 12 minutes or until no longer pink (170F), turning over while sauteing.
  4. Transfer chicken to the pan with the pasta & veggies. Toss with the peanut sauce and heat through over medium heat.
  5. Sprinkle each individual serving with crushed red pepper flakes to taste.

Very good and actually simple. I think what makes it work is the peanut sauce #37244 though. Great meal and definitely a change from the norm in this house!

Yum! I love pasta in peanut sauce and this was a simple and tasty one. I forgot to add the veggies to the pasta water, so did a quick stir-fry of them before adding to the dish. It came together quickly and I really enjoyed the contrast of the crunchy veggies and the red pepper flakes for a little heat. Thanks Hokies for a reat meal. Made for Potluck Tag.

Super easy. The peanut sauce I used had a bit of red pepper so we got a nice little zing. Easy to sub out other ingredients; I used broccoli and a thinly sliced carrot instead of the sliced bell pepper. will make again.
