Peanut Noodles with Chicken

My offering is for a take on sesame noodles that uses both peanuts and peanut butter. This should satisfy the cravings of any peanut butter fan.

With that, I add in various aromatics, spice and a little bit of chicken. This makes it perfect for lunch.

The flat rice noodles are soaked rather than cooked. This is achieved by pouring boiling water over them. Then you wait for those to cool. Test a noodle and it should be done to your liking. If it is too toothsome, repeat the procedure with more boiling water.

This should help avoid the problems one can get that cause the noodles to be mushy and overcooked by adding them to a skillet or wok.
