Do you like peanut butter?

Are you a fan of pasta?

What about really quick meals… do you like meals that are super quick to make?

Yes Yes Yes

Well, I have the recipe for you! Thai Peanut Noodles Recipe is super fast and really flavorful! It’s spicy, creamy, and hearty. As well, it’s economical to make. If you want to kick up the protein, it’s equally as good with grilled chicken. (Leftover grilled or broiled chicken is great, or grab a rotisserie chicken at the store for it.)

Thai Peanut Noodles Recipe Tips

  • Can these noodles be served cold? Yes! They can be served warm or cold.
  • As well, these noodles are even better the next day once the sauce has soaked into the noodles.
  • You can use any type of noodle you have on hand.
  • Sesame oil might not be in your pantry. However, I highly recommend splurging on it. It’s a strongly flavored oil, therefore, you use just a couple of tablespoons in each recipe. It’ll last you for months. You can substitute canola, olive, or another oil, but they won’t give your recipe the same flavor.

    Hi Paula. Nice recipe! I made this early this morning and allowed it to sit in the mixture all day long. When I let my husband smell the noodles he lost it! I can’t wait to try this hot in the next 20 minutes after my chicken is ready. Thanks so much!
