Thai Peanut Chicken and Noodles
Why I Love This Recipe
I found this recipe on the LiptonFavorites.com website & tried it for dinner last night. Unlike other Thai Peanut Chicken recipes I've tried, this wasn't overly sweet and so was pretty good. I doubled the recipe and was still able to have dinner on the table in under 30 minutes.
