We love Asian cuisine, but with 4 kids and a busy schedule it's not always easy or affordable to eat out. I created this inexpensive, quick & easy recipe to recreate the flavors that we all love to enjoy at home.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken cut into 2” pieces
  • 3 TBs vegetable oil
  • 3/4 Cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 Cup lo-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Cup hot water
  • 2 tsp Sambal chili paste
  • 2 TBs brown sugar
  • 4 Cups napa cabbage thinly sliced
  • 1 Cup sliced red peppers cut into 2” pieces
  • 1/4 Cup scallions + extra for garnish
  • 8 oz rice noodles, prepared & drained

Recipe Steps:

  • In a large deep skillet, heat 2 TB oil over med-hi.
  • Add chicken, stirring occasionally until cooked through, about 6-7 minutes.
  • Remove from pan, set aside covered.
  • Add 1 TB oil to the same skillet. When hot, add cabbage, peppers, & scallions. Stir fry 5 minutes until tender-crisp. Add rice noodles & toss until heated through.
  • In a medium saucepan, whisk peanut butter, hot water, chili paste, & brown sugar over medium heat until completely smooth.
  • Divide vegetable & noodle mixture evenly onto plates. Top with chicken, then peanut sauce. Garnish with sliced scallions.
