    Sounds strange, but peanuts are a great compliment to noodles and chilli. Garnish with thinly sliced green onions and some chopped whole peanuts.

    Perfect. Enjoyed by all with none left over!  -  26 Aug 2017


    Used different ingredients. I was so happy to find this recipe! Its nearly identical to one which was served in a restraunt where I used to work. The dish was called Thai Chicken. To recreate it I addded shredded chicken breast, julienned carrots and cabbage. Really tasty either way!  -  21 Jul 2008


    Great taste! The Udon noodles were a bit thick. I would use Soba noodles next time.  -  21 Jul 2008
