Nuts About Noodles!

Nuts About Noodles
(serves 4)

2/3 package of Udon noodles
1 lb. chicken breast (I used tenders)
1/2c to 1c. chicken stock
3 Tbsp. nut butter (I did 2 Tbsp. almond butter and 1 Tbsp. peanut butter)
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
2 Tbsp. honey
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp. sesame oil

1. In a large skillet, cook the chicken over med-high heat until no longer pink in the middle. Transfer to a plate.
2. Bring water to a boil in a large sauce pan.
3. To the large skillet used to cook the chicken add the chicken stock, nut butter, soy sauce, ginger, honey, garlic and sesame oil. Cook over medium-low heat.
4. Add noodles to water and cook according to package directions. (Mine took 4 minutes). Drain.
5. When the nut butter is melted and the sauce is smooth (may need to add more stock to keep the sauce from getting too thick), add the noodles. Using tongs, coat the noodles with the sauce. Add the chicken. Serve!

This one is super quick and super delicious. My toddler slurped every last peanut buttery noodle!

This looks great! Can I use regular noodles?

I haven't tried them with regular pasta noodles but I'm sure it would still be good. Give it a try and let me know how it works out. :o)
