Alright, y’all! Are you as excited about the H-E-B Meal Maker Challenge as I am? Today marks the official start of the challenge with our first recipe. The ingredient – Peanut Butter.
When I first learned that the secret ingredient was peanut butter, I’ll be honest and say I was a little intimidated. I’ve only had one main dish that included peanut butter and it happened to be chicken on a skewer with a peanut sauce. That got me thinking, so I decided to use peanut butter and chicken but add one of my children’s favorite foods – pasta!
All I can say is O.M.G — total deliciousness y’all! So yummy, so creamy, and the aromatics are just heavenly.
- 3 chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- ½ cup chicken broth
- 1½ tablespoons minced fresh ginger root
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1½ tablespoons honey
- 1 package (16 ounces) linguine noodles
- ¼ cup chopped green onions
- salt/pepper, to taste
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add noodles and cook until tender.
- While noodles are cooking, add olive to a skillet and put on medium heat. Add chicken and cook until there is no pink in the center. Since the chicken is cut in small pieces, this will not take very long.
- Meanwhile, combine chicken broth, ginger, soy sauce, peanut butter and honey in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until peanut butter melts and is heated through.
- Once your noodles are done, drain. Return to pot and combine chicken, noodles and sauce. Toss to coat. Garnish with green onions.
