Spicy Peanut Chicken Broccoli Spaghetti Stir-Fry Love Chinese food? Love Peanut Butter? You Are At The Right Place
This chicken dinner idea has Chinese flair, great nutrients, awesome look and wonderful flavor. What not to love, right?
This Spicy Peanut Chicken Broccoli Spaghetti Stir-Fry's original inspiration was from the use of satay sauce. I found that I always use maybe 1/4 of an entire jar and the rest of it was forgotten and thrown away.
So, one day, I thought that I could make my peanut sauce with whatever ingredients that I always have on hand. There...I save money and time by not wasting the food away. As always, this chicken dinner idea was another big hit in our bi-weekly dinner.

When mixing for the sauce, add water until everything is well mixed. This would be easier to get to the right consistency. The thickness should be very similar to ranch dressing pouring out of a jar. It is better to be too thin than too thick because once the sauce is stirred into the pasta, it looks like there is almost no sauce at all.
I personally do not like crunchy peanuts in my pasta or noodles. But do feel free to add a handful of salty peanuts to garnish and for some crunch.
