Thai Chicken Sesame Noodles

I mentioned in a previous post, I have been searching for a good asian noodle dish. I am excited to announce, I found one! This recipe was e-mailed to me several months ago, and I finally dared to try it. This one is a keeper. I was a little hesitant with the whole peanut butter thing, but it worked! My husband suggested that we add halved cashews next time, and I believe that will make it outstanding.

Thai Chicken Sesame Noodles:

1 C prepared Good Seasons Oriental Sesame salad dressing (divided) (I just bought kraft asian sesame dressing and it worked fine)
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cut into strips
2 Tbs. each of chunky peanut butter and honey (I didn't use chunky)
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
8 ounces spaghetti cooked and drained
1/4 C each shredded carrot and sliced green onions
1/4 C chopped cilantro

Pour 1/3 C of dressing over chicken in medium bowl, toss to coat.  Cover and refrigerate 1 hour to marinate.  Drain, discard dressing.  Mix remaining 2/3 C dressing, peanut butter, honey, and pepper, set aside.  Cook chicken in large skillet on medium high heat about 8 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.  Mix chicken, spaghetti, carrot, onions, and cilantro in large bowl.  Add peanut butter mixture, toss to coat.  I also added some peas, but you can be creative and add other fun veggies too!
