Peanut and Soy Noodles with Chicken

Have you ever made a recipe not really knowing how the pickier members of your family would react to it and being fairly anxious when it was time to eat but were quite pleasantly surprised when it was loved by said picky members? This was one of those recipes for me.

This recipe is adapted from the Peanut Butter Chicken recipe from Life as Mom. I had planned on trying a more faithful version of the recipe but my niece and nephew were here for an extra (unplanned) night so I needed something quick and easy to cook for supper without going to the store.

Peanut and Soy Noodles with Chicken

Recipe by Micha @ Cookin’ Mimi adapted from Life as Mom

  1. Uhm…. yum. And yes, I make things all the time that I am relatively unsure whether the pickier members of my family will enjoy as much as I might. All.The.Time. This looks like something I could totally make and since your picky members enjoyed it, I’m giving it a try with my picky members!

  2. Looks yummy! I love that picky eaters enjoyed it 🙂
