I love noodles, cover them in a million different sauces or leave them buttered with some parsley and you can count me in.
And what’s better than combining a delicious peanut sauce with tender pieces of chicken?
Well you could make it gluten free.
And make it in less than 30 minutes.
Now we’re talking, and this dish is so darn good.
I love the flavors of combining the peanut butter with sesame oil. This has become a dish my family asks for often and when the ingredients are easy to pull together and dinner is on the table that fast….I am more than happy to oblige.
Plus, if I haven’t said it yet, I LOVE THIS DISH SO MUCH. And so does my gluten-intolerant tummy.
We are both happy and full, and even better, you can make a big batch and nom on this for lunch the next day.
Yep, everyone will think you were in the kitchen forever, and that you are a master of noodles and peanut sauce.
It’s ok, I won’t tell anyone how easy this is if you don’t.
