More About This Recipe
  • This recipe uses crunchy peanut butter, but you're more than welcome to use whatever kind of peanut butter you like. Just add a smidge of water if it needs thinning. Add the chicken and peanut butter mixture. Toss it all together and if it needs more thinning, go ahead and stir a little saved pasta water in there. Totally optional here, but feel free to toss in some scallions for something green and gorgeous in it! This easy 4 ingredient Peanut Chicken Ramen proves that ramen's not just for college any more.
