Tips  

There are many new peanut sauces on the market. Find the one you enjoy most and keep it on hand for quick meals.

Try making this noodle dish with shrimp or 1/2-inch cubes of firm tofu instead of the chicken breast strips.

For extra peanut flavor and crunch, sprinkle the finished dish with roasted or salted peanuts.
