Thai Peanut Noodles

This is such an easy weeknight meal and so delicious! So easy, in fact, that Grant whipped this up one evening (which says A LOT), when I was running late for dinner. Your husband will think you brought home Thai takeout!

Thai Peanut Noodles
Recipe from: Our Best Bites

1/2 c. chicken broth

3 Tbsp. creamy peanut butter

1-2 tsp. Sriracha chili sauce (The bottle w/ the rooster on the front-- 1 is mild with a bite, 1.5 is medium, 2 is hot)

1 1/2 Tbsp. honey

3 Tbsp. soy sauce

1 1/2 Tbsp. fresh minced ginger

2-3 cloves garlic, pressed or minced

8 oz. linguine noodles

2 chopped green onions- just the tops

Chopped cilantro

2 limes, cut into quarters

Chopped peanuts

Cook noodles in salted water. In the meantime, combine chicken broth, peanut butter, chili sauce, honey, soy sauce, ginger, and garlic in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk until smooth and remove from heat. Toss cooked noodles with sauce and divide among 4 bowls.

Sprinkle with green onions, cilantro, chopped peanuts, and garnish each serving with 2 lime quarters.

Before eating, squeeze lime juice over noodles and stir to combine.*I think this is great as a vegetarian meal, but if desired, you can easily add very thinly-sliced chicken, which would be delicious too!
