Chicken and Rice Noodles with Peanut Sauce
Rice noodles! Gluten free noodles that are yummy have great texture and usually a great way to soak up lots of sauce. Especially my delicious peanut sauce recipe. This dish all started with the love my household has for peanut butter. My wife is a peanut butter addict and eventually that wore off on me. The timeline goes like this, smooth peanut butter ► crunchy peanut butter ► Jack’s Peanut Sauce! And that’s where were at now. Rice noodles + Peanut Sauce + Sriracha Chicken = YUMMYatCWJ
Rice noodles are usually in dishes from the east and southeast regions of the world. They are made with rice flour and water and are in popular dishes such as Pad Thai and Phở. I love pasta, but I prefer these noodles any day due to their soft texture. The method I used to prepare the rice noodles was simply soaking them in cold water until they were soft. When my dish was 80% complete and all I needed to do was add the noodles, I strained the noodles from the cold water and added them to my saute pan with the simmering ingredients. (simmering peanut sauce and vegetables)
