Easy Thai Recipes – Thai Peanut Noodles with Chicken

Here is a nice weeknight meal that can be made quickly and inexpensively. It is loaded in flavor and is an all time favorite at our house. You will need some time to marinade the chicken so plan ahead. Here is what you need for this:

8 chicken tenderloins – cut into strips
1 TBS sesame oil
1 TBS cilantro – chopped
1 tsp. grated fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves – minced
Salt & Pepper
Rinse and pat dry the chicken. Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

½ cup soy sauce
2 TBS rice wine vinegar
1 tsp. fish sauce
¼ cup honey
¼ cup creamy peanut butter
Whisk all of the ingredients well and set aside.
Cook 12 oz. of pasta – spaghetti or linguini or fettuccine – drain and set aside.

2 carrots – cut into strips
10 snow peas – sliced
6 scallions – chopped
4 garlic cloves – minced
1 TBS grated ginger
Sesame oil

Heat a skillet with some sesame oil until hot. Add the chicken and cook until browned on all sides. Remove and set aside.
Wipe the skillet and add more sesame oil. Add the carrots and the snow peas. Sauté for a couple minutes. Add the scallions, garlic and ginger. Mix well and sauté, stirring often, for 5 to 6 minutes. Return the chicken to the pan and mix well. Add the cooked pasta and the sauce. Toss to coat well. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes and serve. Enjoy!

    Hi Mary Ann,

    I made this dish and I just loved it. It was amazing! My husband, on the other hand, does not care for the peanut flavor. Is there something else that I can substitute for the peanut butter? Or perhaps I can just leave it out….??? Do you have any suggestions?

    Thanks a bunch,

    Hi Krista!
    The peanut butter makes this recipe. How about a chicken chow mein? I have a recipe for that as well. It is really good. Thank you so much for coming by!

    Wonderful for bodybuilding (at least if you’re trying to bulk)! I made it without the fish sauce and it was just plain delicious. Using 4 large chicken breasts and 350 grams of thin rice noodles makes a GIANT amount, and will last one person a few days at the least.

    We tried this recipe and loved it. We substituted gluten free soy sauce and used rice noodles because I have Celiac Disease. We added some chili garlic sauce to the marinade and sauce for some heat. I’m not that fond of snow peas, so we put in mushrooms and bean sprouts. It came out super delicious.
