Noodle and Vegetable and Chicken Stuff with Peanut Stuff in it

WE ARE MASTER CHEFS. (Okay, not really. I myself recently rejoiced at remembering how to make boxed Mac and Cheese- but we watch a lot of Food Network and we FEEL LIKE WE’RE MASTER CHEFS.)

Between the two of us, we were able to create this tasty dish:

This picture doesn’t do it justice…

YOU WILL NEED:

  • Spaghetti or similar noodly-type things
  • Chicken tenderloins
  • Vegetables (fresh or frozen): Broccoli and Cauliflower florets (the little tree-things), carrots
  • Olive oil
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Chili powder
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Salt ‘n’ Pepa

TOOLS:

  • Cooking Pot
  • Cooking Pan
  • Other Cooking Pan (a little one, for the sauce)
  • Colander (strainer)
  • Um… a stove, I guess?

Toss a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper on the larger pan, put in the chicken and cook it on sorta-low heat until there are no pink bits.

While that’s happening: boil the noodles and vegetables together in a biggish pot of water until tender and squishy. Strain them, then add to the cooked chicken.

PEANUT STUFF:

(measurements can be… ehh)

In the smaller pan, combine on low to medium heat: 1/4 cup of peanut butter, 1 Tablespoon of Balsamic vinegar, 1 Tablespoon of Olive oil, big glob of chili powder, and a pinch of salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes (L put in a lot by accident, but I liked it spicy.) Let the mixture melt a bit, and add a little water if it looks too thick to you.

Now flop all that peanut-y goodness around in the chicken, noodles, and veggies until it looks edible. Serve with chopsticks, then give up and use a fork.
