      I made Teriyaki Delight for the chicken part and used all broccoli for the veggies. Using the soup season. packet added a nice flavor to the sauce. I added half the peanut butter (I always do in these type recipes because my kids think it's too strong) and it worked out fine. I thought this was a fun recipe! Thanks Sharon, for posting. Roxygirl

      The peanut sauce adds such a nice flavor to this dish. I used rice noodles instead of ramen noodles. I also used a 14 ounce package of frozen stir fry veggies, which was about 4 cups. The stir fry mix included water chestnuts and bamboo shoots, so I didn't use any additional. I tried this with sliced steak strips. Quick and easy to make on a weeknight.

      This was a simple meal to put together. I used angelhair pasta and a raman noodle flavor packet left over from another recipe. Used Venison and a mixture of broccoli, carrots and peppers. Left out the bamboo shoots and had no peanuts to garnish with. The sauce was light and flavorful without the sickly sweet flavor of some peanut sauces. Will make again when I have leftover chicken or pork.
