Ginger Sesame Peanut Chicken Noodles

Chicken Peanut NoodlesIngredients:

5 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced into thin strips
1 ½ red bell peppers, thinly sliced
1 ½ green bell peppers, thinly sliced
2 onions, thinly sliced
1 ½ lb. linguine or spaghetti noodles
¾ cup Peanut butter
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 ½ tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 ½ tablespoons freshly ground ginger root
4 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (to taste)
salt & pepper, to taste

Instructions:

Sauté the chicken with 1 tablespoon of the canola oil, until chicken is browned. Remove from the skillet. Add remaining canola oil and sauté the onions, peppers, garlic and ginger. Once the vegetables have softened and caramelized, return the chicken to the skillet and add the peanut butter, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, sesame oil, chili peppers, and salt and pepper.

In a separate pot, cook the pasta according to the directions on the package, removing from the water just a minute or two shy of fully cooked. Add the pasta to the skillet with the chicken mixture, and toss to coat. You can add some of the pasta water to the sauce if needed to be thinned out. Sprinkle the sesame seeds over the pasta and serve warm.
