Tonight’s meal came from a nice food blog I came across during one of my many blog/recipe searches. The chicken needs to be marinated, preferably overnight, so I prepped and chopped everything last night. The meal came together really quickly tonight, which was a really good thing because I was starving and soooo in the mood for this stuff!!
Thai Chicken Pasta
Recipe from Cook Like a Champion (click link for recipe and original source)
I basically followed the recipe exactly except for a couple substitutions. I used whole wheat angel hair pasta because I couldn’t find any Pad Thai noodles. I also used reduced-fat peanut butter because that’s what I had.
The Verdict: Holy. Crap. This was good. Rich, smooth, peanuty and deep in flavor. Wayne thought it was “too sweet” but a few squirts of hot sauce fixed that. Next time I might use a tad less peanut butter OR use regular fat peanut butter. Also, the chili sauce I bought wasn’t Siracha (couldn’t find that either!), and it barely had any heat. But like I said, a little Frank’s was all I needed. Regardless, I loved loved loved this meal… so glad I found it!!
