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.

How to Make Peanut Chicken Linguine with Snow Peas & Cucumber


  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.
  3. Stir in the snow peas and bean sprouts and cook until the vegetables and pasta are just done, about 3 minutes more. Drain and return to pot.
  4. Mix in the cooked chicken; mix and heat for 1 minute more. Turn off heat.
  5. Toss with the peanut sauce, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, the scallions, cucumber, and 1/3 cup of the peanuts. Serve with the remaining peanuts sprinkled over the top.

    Note: Use an English (hothouse) cucumber, which is almost completely seedless.
