Easiest Peanut Sauce Ever
- Place all ingredients in a chopper (mine is like this) and blend into a smooth thick mixture. Set aside.
Prepping The Noodles
- Soak noodles in a bowl with hot water (not boiling) for 2 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water. Set aside.
- Heat a wok (or a pan) on medium high heat with some oil. Add in chicken and let it sit for a few minutes to brown. Stir everything and add in onion and garlic. Continue cooking until the onion gets translucent.
- Now add in both pepper and cook for 1 minute. Finally add in noodles and 1/2 of peanut sauce. Stir everything well. Use tongs to toss and mix better. Serve immediately.
How To Serve
- Serve hot with some lime wedges the side and a sprinkle of coriander leaves. The lime really brighten up the flavours more. Optional, serve also some sliced chili and some peanuts.
- I'm using 1/2 of peanut sauce for 1 meal. You can double up the other ingredients and make for 2 meals to use up all the peanut sauce.
- Or save the other half and use as a dipping sauce for your grilled chicken, meat or put on your burger patty (yes, do try that).
