This is a recipe that I've tweeked and adjusted to yield a warm noodle side-dish. It can also stand alone as a main dish. It's quick and easy and full of flavor! I serve it with Chicken Satay. Leftovers are yummy hot or cold.

I was looking for a recipe similar to the Thai Chicken Pasta dish at Cheesecake Factory, and this was very close. To bring it closer to the Cheesecake Factory Dish, I added two cut up chicken breasts, which I cooked until it turned white before adding the carrots and vegetables. Also, I increased the peanut butter by a tablespoon, doubled the chili sauce, and topped the final dish with fresh bean sprouts. One more thing; whisk the sauce ingredients before adding it to the vegetables to make a smooth sauce. My whole family loved this!
