What's Cooking

Chicken and Linguine with Peanut Sauce

4 chicken breast halves trimmed
1/2 lb linguine (or pasta of your choice)

1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 rounded Tbsp fresh ginger minced or grated
4 cloves garlic minced or crushed
1 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp red pepper flakes or to taste
1 Tbsp sesame oil
1/2 cup canola oil

Combine all peanut sauce ingredients with a whisk, adding oil slowly to emulsify. Marinate chicken breasts for an hour in just enough sauce to coat them. Grill breasts, basting with the sauce. Cook pasta, drain, mix with remaining peanut sauce, and heat. Leave a little peanut sauce to serve with the chicken. Yum!

Recipe serves 4 and can be easily adjusted to fit the needs of your family.
