Chicken & Pasta in Peanut Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by HokiesMom

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.

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!
