Review This Recipe
Even better with shrimp
I made this for my wife when we were dating and now we make it about once a month. We also like it with shrimp in it as well.
Way to oily! If you could cut the oil, then would be great. This dish had all the making to be a fine meal.
Easy and quick to make - Left out the hot chili as neither my husband nor I are really fond of spicy things - served with oven fried chicken breast strips and it was a meal in itself
My teenager daughter can't get enough of this recipe she would have this dish at least 3 times a week! It is easy to prepare and we find it extremely tasty. Definitely a hit in our family.
Easy to match all tastes!!
I have made this recipe many times and everyone has loved it! (lots of requests for copies) I only make one change - rather then pour the sauce on, I serve it on the side. That way people can use as much or as little as they want. . . especially the kids who don't like anything on their noodles. I freeze any leftover sauce to use next time - cutting down even more on prep time.
This dish is only fast if you already have cooked chicken. I just used canned white chicken which did make it pretty quick and easy. I thought it had too much peanut butter and oil as well. If I make it again, I will just leave out the vegetable oil all together. Overall, it was just so-so.
Quick and easy
This was quick and easy to fix after a long day at work, I had followed other reviews and cut the oil the oils in half, next time I would cut the hot oil in half as well was just a tiny bit too spicey, but over all a very good dish, really hit the spot.
Great and Easy
Recipe was quick and easy, just what I like for a last minute covered dish for a picnic. This went over real well with my family. They enjoy spicy dishes and so it was gone in no time. I think for myself I will also cut back on the oil and the peanut butter next time as it was alittle oily for me...
Angel Hair Pasta & Chicken with Oriental Dressing
I enjoy fast and easy and this recipe was both. It went over really well at a picnic I took it to. The next time though I will cut back on the oil and peanut butter.
I followed the suggestion in a couple of the reviews and cut back on the oil, I used 1/3 cup total, 1/6 cup sesame oil and 1/6 cup vegetable oil. It was delicious. Quick and easy, peanutty and spicy. I will definitely make this again.
This recipe is great because it is so easy to make. Although, I do agree with the other reviews, it is too peanuty and too oily. Just use 1/4 cup of peanut butter and 1/3 cup of oil all together and it comes out great. Good for a marinade and salad dressing as well.
trying something new
This dish was a huge upset. The food required to much peanut butter and too much oil. This was a learning experience, because now I know what never to make again.
I thought the sauce was simply too peanutty, and I like peanuts. The sauce is also very greasy with the two types of oil. I was disappointed in this recipe. It sounded a lot better than it tasted.
My husband asks for this.
First decrease the peanut butter a little. We both love the sweet and slight hot flavor of this dish.
I LOVE this recipe! Not only is it fast (~15 minutes from start to finish) it also tastes wonderful!
