Peanut Chicken Linguine with Snow Peas & Cucumber

J White Harris

By

Kids will like this Asian-inspired noodle dish--after all, the sauce is made with peanut butter--but the combination of cooked and raw vegetables is refreshing and satisfying enough to please all ages. This is a terrific dish for leftover chicken. Serve immediately after tossing it with the peanut mixture; the sauce gets thick if it sits too long.

Ingredients

3/4 lb

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a blender or food processor, combine the garlic, soy sauce, peanut butter, chicken broth, lime juice, red-pepper flakes, and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. Puree until smooth.
2
In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the linguine until almost done, about 9 minutes.
