How to Make Chicken and Noodles with Peanut Sauce
First, combine chicken broth, peanut butter, ginger, soy sauce, honey, red pepper flakes, and garlic in a medium bowl and whisk until smooth.
Next, bring a pot of salted water to a boil on the stove. Cook the spaghetti according to the package directions. The pasta should be aldente. Drain the pasta and transfer it to a large bowl.
Then add the carrots, peanut sauce, and chicken to the spaghetti and toss all the ingredients to coat thoroughly.
Finally, sprinkle each bowl with green onions and chopped peanuts before serving. Garnish each serving with chopped fresh cilantro and enjoy.
