Peanut Thai Chicken With Vermicelli Noodles

Recipe by Oolala

A community cookbook find from Betty Nudell. Just typing this makes me salivate!I guessed time since I haven't made this yet. This recipe has poached chicken and it doesn't account for the cooking of the chicken.

I just made this, substituting snow peas for long beans and cayenne for crushed dried red chilis. I sauteed the beans and shallots with the chicken (I HATE uncooked shallots, lol).

This was WONDERFUL! Will definitely make again.
