NOTES

The combination of peanut butter, garlic, chili sauce, and soy sauce tastes much better than it sounds – who knew! Great aroma, great taste. The chicken broth evaporates into the noodles to add flavor, as well as a bit of moisture. But for the most part, these turn out to be dry noodles. I enjoyed this recipe. It’s different, but delicious. 

I made some changes to the recipe based on the ingredients I had at hand, including the addition of chicken and spinach, as well as the substitution of chili garlic sauce for Sriracha (since I unfortunately did not have Sriracha available at the time). I also skipped the ginger because I am not a fan of ginger. I also doubled the recipe, which is why the portion size seems so large.
