Asian Creation

Asian Creation


A flavorful Asian spaghetti dish with chunks of chicken and flavored with peanut butter, honey, ginger, cardamom, soy sauce and a touch of heat from crushed red pepper flakes. It is similar to a cross between Thai noodles and Chinese Lo Mein. Note: For the green onions, I sliced the green tops into 1-inch sections and sliced the whites into 1/4-inch sections. I also used 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes and found the amount of heat to be just right, but if you don't want it to be as spicy, use only a 1/4 teaspoon. Created for RSC #13.
