Thai Peanut Chicken with Ramen

I had pretty low expectations when I started making this dish of Thai peanut chicken with Ramen noodles. I can’t say I’ve eaten a lot of Ramen noodles. They weren’t around when I was in college. Back then my staple was canned chili or soup when the dorm cafeteria wasn’t open.

Thai Peanut Chicken with RamenBut, this dish takes those little Ramen noodles to a new level. This dish is fantastic.You have the freshness of the coconut, cilantro and lime flavors, with the smooth creaminess of peanut butter… all backed up with a hint of Sriracha on the stir-fried chicken. I’d make this again and again.
