Savory cilantro & peanut sauce.

Savory cilantro & peanut sauce.

An easy gluten-free dish with an Asian flare. To change it up, feel free to switch out the chicken for shrimp or make it a vegetarian affair by adding tofu!

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Put a large pot of water on to boil for cooking pasta.
  2. Meanwhile, place chicken in a skillet or saucepan and add enough water to cover; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer gently until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board. When cool enough to handle, shred into bite-size strips.
  3. Whisk peanut butter, soy sauce, garlic, chili-garlic sauce and ginger in a large bowl.
  4. Cook pasta in the boiling water until not quite tender, about 1 minute less than specified in the package directions. Add vegetables and cook until the pasta and vegetables are just tender, about 1 minute more. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid. Rinse the pasta and vegetables with cool water to refresh.
  5. Stir the reserved cooking liquid into the peanut sauce; add the pasta, vegetables and chicken; toss well to coat. Garnish with the blanched peanuts. Serve warm or chilled.
