Peanut Thai Noodles

Alright so this recipe is still a work in progress. I looked on line and got a few ideas but ran with it on my own and it still needs some tweeking, to be where I really like it. Everyone else seemed to enjoy it though...

1 pkg spaghetti noodles cooked al dente
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 T garlic
1/2 of an onion
1 green chile sliced
1/3 cup soy sauce
3 T oyster sauce or fish sauce would work too.
1 tsp ground ginger
1 T rice wine vinegar
1 1/2 cups chicken stock
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp red pepper flakes
carrots julienned
chicken strips (I had left over roasted chicken so I used that)
other veggies and proteins what ever you perfer.

Saute the garlic and onion and chile in a bit of oil add the stock, vinegar, peanut butter, soy, oyster sauce, ginger and cayenne and flakes. Cook till melted and smooth. Adjust the heat as you perfer by adding more cayenne. Sir fry the chicken, carrots and other items and add the cooked spaghetti, toss with the sauce and serve with chopped peanuts, lime juice and Sriracha.

Overall it was tasty but I need to play around with it some more until I can consider it one of my favorites!

  1. Do you ever use coconut milk in your peanut sauce?
