I made this recipe last Friday for a friend and it took no time at all to put together. It’s really simple and a great meal for a weekday. This recipe comes to me from my lovely Aunt Donna who seems to have a great collection of recipes for easy and tasty meals.
- 3 tbsp soy sauce
- 3 tbsp peanut butter
- 2 tbsp minced ginger root
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 tbsp rice vinegar
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- Vegetable oil
- 1 lb skinless, boneless chicken, cubed (breast or thigh)
- 1 onion, small diced
- 1 red bell pepper, thin sliced
- A couple of good handfuls of spinach
- 1 package egg noodles
Prep time: 30 minutes
Makes 2 large portions… if you’re serving more than 2 people, double it up.
Combine soy sauce, peanut butter, ginger, sugar, sesame oil, rice vinegar, and garlic in a small bowl. Set aside.
In a wok or large skillet, heat oil over high heat and add chicken and cook through. Remove chicken from pan, reserving any juices.
(now is a good time to put your pasta on to boil)
Add onion and peppers to pan and sauté for 3-5 minutes.
Reduce heat, return chicken and juices to pan along with peanut butter sauce. Toss to coat. Let simmer 2 minutes
Add spinach and toss until the spinach is fully incorporated and soft. (The spinach will look like a lot but it warms down to just about nothing.)
Serve over hot pasta!
