Reviews for Thai Chicken Peanut Noodles
Sort By :
"This is an excellent dish. We really liked it. I cut the hot sauce back some and did not add the red pepper flakes - we are sensitive to too much heat. We made it as spicy as we could handle and LOVED IT !!! This is going in the green "its a keeper" binder !!"
"We really liked this, a family pleasing dish! The store I shopped at didn't have ground chicken so I used ground pork instead. I also omitted the red pepper flakes as I feared they may add too much spice for my family's taste and the amount of heat was perfect. The peanuts on top added great texture. I will certainly make this again."
"I made this for my son who eats at Thai restaurants every noon in Boston. The only change that I made was to use lime juice instead of lemon juice. He really liked it! My husband likes spicy Asian food and he loved it."
"Very good. Doubled the recipe. I substituted shrimp for the chicken, and my veg was snow peas instead. I used fresh-squeezed lemon juice, but next time I will use half as much, as I found the lemon flavour a bit overpowering. I also used about half the amount of srichacha sauce, so it wouldn't be too spicy... I also used Udon noodles, they're the best for this kind of dish I think, as they're nice and thick and the sauce sticks to them well..."
"MMM! Simple recipe but big flavor. I omitted the red pepper and Sriracha and used cubed chicken breast instead. I also substituted homemade egg noodles. Accidentally doubled sauce, but it worked out because my hubby wanted more in his dish."
