Recipe: Noodle Bowl with Beer Peanut Sauce

I put this Betty Crocker recipe on my menu plan last week - and it was delicious. The beer-peanut sauce is what caught my attention and we added chicken to make it a more filling meal - which was perfect.

If you're a fan of Pad Thai - give this recipe a try. It really ended up being a perfect amount of peanut taste and was a hit among the family. I'm thinking this will become one of those meals that end up on rotation a fair amount because they are so easy.

Here is my modified version of the recipe.

Sauce

1/3
cup beer (we just used Bud Light)
1/3
cup peanut butter
2
tablespoons soy sauce
1/2
teaspoon ground ginger
1/4
teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Noodles

8
oz uncooked linguine
2
cups frozen broccoli florets (chopped up into smaller pieces)
1
cup shredded carrots
1

medium red bell pepper, cut into bite-size strips

1 1/2  cup rotisserie chicken shredded
DIRECTIONS:

- In small bowl, gradually beat beer into peanut butter with whisk until smooth. Beat in remaining sauce ingredients. Set aside.
Cook linguine as directed on package, adding broccoli, carrots and bell pepper during last 2 minutes of cooking. Drain; return to saucepan.
- Add chicken and pour sauce over mixture, gently stirring till coated. Serve immediately.

This made a huge helping - although the four of us seemed to eat it all. I really recommend giving this recipe a try. Of course, it fits in well with my rotisserie chicken obsession.
