  • Active Time 30m
  • Total Time 30m

6 servings, 1 1/2 cups each

If you can't find a bagged vegetable medley for this easy noodle bowl, choose 12 ounces of cut vegetables from your market's salad bar and create your own mix.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days. To serve, stir in 2 tablespoons warm water per portion; serve cold or reheat in microwave.

ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup smooth natural peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili-garlic sauce, or to taste (see Ingredient Note)
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 8 ounces whole-wheat spaghetti
  • One 12-ounce bag fresh vegetable medley, such as carrots, broccoli, snow peas
  • Ingredient Note: Chili-garlic sauce (or chili-garlic sauce, or paste) is a blend of ground chilies, garlic and vinegar and is commonly used to add heat and flavor to Asian soups, sauces and stir-fries. It can be found in the Asian section of large supermarkets and keeps up to 1 year in the refrigerator.

directions

Put a large pot of water on to boil for cooking the pasta.

Meanwhile, place the chicken in a skillet or saucepan and add enough water to cover; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat to low and simmer gently until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board. When cool enough to handle, shred into bite-size strips.

Whisk the peanut butter, soy sauce, garlic, chili-garlic sauce and ginger in a large bowl.

Cook the pasta in the boiling water until not quite tender, about 1 minute less than specified in the package directions. Add the vegetables and cook until the pasta and vegetables are just tender, 1 minute more. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid. Rinse the pasta and vegetables with cool water to refresh. Stir the reserved cooking liquid into the peanut sauce; add the pasta, vegetables and chicken; toss well to coat. Serve warm or chilled.
