Meal 20- Thai Chicken and Noodles

Tonight’s meal is a perfect example of how Aldi’s Special Buys can jazz up the nightly routine.  What might normally be chicken with pasta, rice, or potatoes, instantly became a delicious Asian cuisine.  I was feeling hungry so I used two packets of Thai noodles (a special buy item).  They were tasty, but not as good as Thai rice noodles that I have  previously purchased at Aldi.  I also used the rest of the jar of Teriyaki Wok Sauce.  So, this dish was extra sassy and saucy.

Necessary ingredients: 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, 2 packets of Thai noodles, 3 pieces celery, 1/3 bag baby carrots, 1/2 jar Teriyaki Wok sauce, handful of peanuts.

Cut chicken breasts in pieces.  Boil 3 cups of water with a few rounds of olive oil.  Add the Thai noodles to boiling water.  Simmer for 7 minutes and take off of heat.  Begin cooking chicken with one round of olive oil in a skillet or wok.  Chop the celery and baby carrots.  Add to chicken.  Stir in a handful of peanuts.  Stir and cook a few minutes.  Add the wok sauce.  Stir and cook some more.  If it is a little too saucy for you, just add a couple pinches of flour and briskly stir.  If it is a little too sassy for you, then go home.  Serve over or beside noodles.

    I really enjoy thai food but never had a chance to make it at home. With this recipe I will definitely get a chance to do that. I really love thai noodles with chicken, so I can’t wait to make this. Wonderful post.
