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.
