Thai Chicken Fettuccine

Thai Chicken Fettuccine is one of peanut butter recipes that have surprised me, it’s really good!I made Thai Chicken Fettuccine last night for dinner. I have to say I was worried at first, the peanut butter and salsa combo made me uneasy. It really wasn’t bad. I enjoyed this meal. It was a little bit bland even. Next time I make this (and there will be a next time) I am thinking I am going to add lime juice. I really think this dish was missing that one ingredient.

Thai Chicken Fettuccine
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 8 ounces uncooked fettuccine
  • 3/4 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, julienne
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro

For sauce, in a microwave-safe bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Cover and microwave on high for 1 minute; stir. Set aside.
Cook fettuccine according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook chicken in oil over medium heat for 3-5 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Add red pepper; cook and stir until crisp-tender.
Drain fettuccine; top with chicken mixture and sauce. Sprinkle with cilantro.

This dish takes no time at all. It’s quick, easy and makes great leftovers for the next day’s lunch. Enjoy and don’t forget to pin it!
