Gluten Free Chicken Satay Noodles

Gluten Free Chicken Satay Noodles

They say necessity is the mother of invention. I say sometimes laziness is the mother of a really great dinner.

I was in the mood for chicken satay but too lazy to cut chicken breasts, thread them onto skewers, grill them, make sauce, and then figure out what else to serve with them to make a whole meal.

The result of my laziness is Gluten Free Chicken Satay Noodles – a whole stir-fry meal with all the flavor I was hoping for and a lot less time and effort.

I boiled some Explore Cuisine Thai red rice noodles, browned some ground chicken, quickly sautéed some veggies, made a quick peanut sauce, tossed it all together, topped it with a few garnishes I had on hand, and enjoyed a really tasty dinner all in the time it would have taken me to slice and thread that chicken.

    Wow…definitely a good solution! Rotisserie or (or leftover) chicken would work really well with this, too.
