Asian-Style Chicken and Pasta

Asian-Style Chicken and Pasta

This was a definite hit for dinner! I found this recipe in a newsletter I receive. It sounded easy, so I decided to give it a try. 

This went together so quickly, it was done it about 25 minutes. There's even enough left for my husband to have another night. 

I added more chicken than the recipe states and I used cooking oil. For the nuts, I used sliced almonds. We really enjoyed this dish and I will be making it again.

Asian-Style Chicken and Pasta
makes 4 servings

2 cups dried Chinese egg noodles or fine egg noodles (4 ounces)
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/3 cup bottled stir-fry sauce
1 cup snow pea pods or fresh sugar snap peas, tips and stems removed, and cut up
1 medium red sweet pepper, cut into bite-sized strips
2 teaspoons peanut oil or cooking oil
5 ounces cooked chicken breast, cut into strips (about 1 cup)
2 tablespoons chopped cashews or peanuts or toasted sliced almonds

Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain; set aside. Stir ginger into the bottled stir-fry sauce; set aside. 

In a large skillet cook and stir peas and sweet pepper in hot oil over medium-high heat for 3 to 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add cooked noodles, chicken, stir-fry sauce, and cashews; heat through.
