Fettuccine and chicken with finger-licking peanut sauce

I only discovered this recipie this year and it quickly became a favorite. My kids love it and I love the wonderful flavors. It's a great way to get kids to love veggies! Thanks Ann Marie

8 ounces uncooked fettuccine
1 lb. cooked chicken, cubed
1 cup sliced green onions
1 cup shredded carrot
1 cup sprouts

For the Sauce:
(There are a lot of ingredients, but once you buy them all you will be able to make quite a few thai recipes. I'll share another favorite pasta soon. Also a store as simple as Walmart has all these products, look on the oriental isle.) Also this pizza recipe uses all the same ingredients as it is the same sauce.

1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup chunky peanut butter
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce (if you don't have low sodium mix 1/8 cup soy sauce to 1/8 cup water)
3 tbs brown sugar
2 tbs rice vinegar
2 tsp grated, peeled fresh ginger (may use power instead)
2 tsp chili paste with garlic
4 garlic cloves minced

Combined and cook all ingredients in saucepan over medium and whisk until smooth, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Cook pasta per package directions in LG pot and drain then put back in pot used to cook pasta. Add chicken, onions, carrots and sprouts. Add PB mixture toss gently.

This dish has many variations. Shrimp or tofu instead of chicken. Or add snow peas, bell pepper strips or other veggies. Just use your favorites.

Enjoy KCL

Mmm mmm good! We made this pasta and the pizza the last couple of nignts. I did the pizza just on french bread because it was what we had. I loved it. That sauce is delicious. It was a good change for us to have pasta with something other than a red sauce (and yes, we eat way too much pasta.) Love you!
