Thai Noodles With Peanut Sauce

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 20 mins

This is a "full-bodied" set of flavors that come together deliciously! My family loves this for dinner and we have it in our "recipe juke box" as a regular dinner :-) I've made it a bit spicy here, so cut back on the red pepper, ginger and garlic if you want a more mild flavor. Great (and beautiful) served with steamed broccoli. Time saver: I often put together the sauce ingredients (first ingredient through garlic) together in the morning in a two cup measuring cup and stir so that my before meal prep is super simple. I tell myself it gives a chance for the flavors to come together better anyway! ;-)

This was absolutely delicious! I used the whole 1 lb. package of spaghetti and 3 chicken breasts. I don't know if the recipe was intended to be 4 breast halves, because even with the extra pasta 3 seemed like a ton of chicken. That's okay though, I liked it meaty. I didn't change any other amounts. The sauce really clung to the noodles which I liked. This would also be great with a different meat or no meat at all. Thank you, I'll be making this again!

Great recipe! I also did the sauce ahead of time and stuck it in the fridge until dinner. Used shrimp instead of chicken, and a cabbage/carrot mix. Thanks!

I'm always looking for quick and easy Thai recipes. This one just isn't that great. I used rice noodles instead of spaghetti. It definitely has too much cumin as-is (and I love cumin). I'd cut it in half if I made this again, though I probably won't. It's edible but doesn't taste like any peanut sauce I've had at any Thai restaurant.
