Thai Peanut Chicken Noodles

This is no michelin star meal, it's one of my student suppers. It's cheap, easy and SO tasty. After a long day at work, with a rumbling tummy and you are desperate to just hit the pillow this couldn't be more perfect.

I've made noodle based dishes so many times that I can whip them up in 15 minutes and this one is definitely my favourite. 



Ingredients:
Noodles of your choice
One tablespoon of peanut butter per person
A couple of mushrooms
A handfull of cashew nuts
3 tablespoons of soya sauce
150g of diced chicken
Any vegetables that you like 
(peppers, beansprouts, babycorn)- I used aspragus, sugar snap peas and broccoli.
1 chopped onion
1 garlic clove crushed

For the vegetarians, you can substitute the chicken and add more vegetables and tofu. With noodles I'm a huge shirataki fan, they soak up flavour well, they are extremely light and so healthy, but any noodles can be used in this recipe. You can buy them online here or you can find them in the chilled section of oriental and health stores.

1. Boil your water for any vegetables (broccoli, asparagus and sugarsnap peas) and your noodles, when boiled put them all in and leave to simmer. I normally only put my vegetables in for around 7 minutes so they keep a little crunch and putting them into the frying pan softens them a little too. the less you cook them more vitamins they hold are the healthier they are!
2. Slice your mushrooms and onions



3. Chuck the onions and mushrooms into a pan with oil and your garlic and diced chicken, leave for around 5/10 minutes, until your chicken is cooked through and slightly browned.


4. Add your cashew nuts and soy sauce. For the peanut butter put the scoop on top of the chicken mixture, it should take about 1 minute to melt, slowly stir it in.






5. Add your boiled vegetables, and some salt, pepper and chilli powder if you fancy! Stir it all in for a minute or two.

And you're done...






Too easy!

It's a great healthy meal, it's basically carb free if using shirataki too and one portion will contain around 350kcal. You get your protein from the chicken, some healthy fats from nuts and your vitamins from the vegetables!

I'm more of a sweet person then a savoury and most of my last recipes have been sweet and naughty so I hope you like this one!
