    HeatherFeather's Note:

    This was one of my favorite recipes from Painter's Tavern in NY state. I tracked down various versions and tested and retested until I found the taste that fit their version. Thai inspired, not truly an authentic dish. This makes a lot of sauce - in fact, you may find that you don't need quite the full amount for this recipe. It really depends on how much you like in your finished dish. I usually make the full amount and the next meal I serve the extra portion as a dip for chicken fingers or satay sticks (it also can be used as a chicken marinade). The nutritional data is assuming you are eating all of the sauce with this meal, so bear that in mind.

    Peanut Sauce (one whole batch)

    For the chicken

    Directions:

    1. 1
      For the Sauce: Heat coconut milk, peanut butter, and broth in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly until smooth and heated through (do not let boil).
    2. 2
      Add remaining sauce ingredients, seasoning to taste, stirring constantly until the sauce thickens to the consistency of thin spaghetti sauce.
    3. 3
      Remove from heat and cover, if will continue to thicken off the heat.
    4. 4
      To prepare the chicken:.
    5. 5
      Heat some sesame oil in a large skillet over medium high heat and stir fry the chicken chunks until almost cooked through.
    6. 6
      While the chicken is cooking, squeeze some lime juice into the pan to add moisture, as much as needed.
    7. 7
      Set aside about 1/2 cup of the diced scallions for a garnish later, and add the rest to the chicken, along with the carrots and stir fry until the veggies are lightly browned and the chicken is fully cooked, adding even more lime juice as needed for moisture.
    8. 8
      Pour some of the peanut sauce over the chicken in the pan and toss to coat (a ladleful or two).
    9. 9
      Portion cooked pasta onto serving plates and ladle some more peanut sauce on top of each (or if you prefer, toss pasta with some of the sauce first).
    10. 10
      Ladle chicken mixture on top of each portion, and drizzle with a bit more peanut sauce if desired.
    11. 11
      Sprinkle with some cayenne pepper and some reserved scallions (and nuts if desired) as garnish.
    12. 12
      You may have extra sauce, which keeps about 2 days covered in the fridge, a nice dip for chicken fingers.

      Heather this was so good you clever thing, the sauce was amazing. I cut the recipe by half and had it with brown rice rather than the pasta, that was my only change. I made the sauce in the morning and did my prep for the rest of the recipe and finished it off when I came home from work and dinner was on the table in no time. All the flavours mingled well together and I used madras curry powder so it was quite hot witch was good that's how we like it. Next time I will get some wholemeal noodles and make it like you intended but ether way it is a recipe that I think we will be making lots as it was very good and well worth the 5 stars and more.
