I had a dish like this at a restaurant in Canada on my honeymoon and thought it was delicious, so I tried to recreate it once I got back home. This is the result.

  • Heat oil in a large non-stick pan or wok over medium heat; cook and stir chicken until no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes. Add celery, red bell peppers, red onion, and carrots; cook and stir until vegetables are slightly tender, about 5 minutes.

  • Mix chicken broth, soy sauce, cornstarch, garlic powder, and sesame oil in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until desired thickness of sauce is reached, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Stir peanuts, garlic, and red pepper flakes into chicken-vegetables mixture; cook for 2 minutes more. Pour sauce over chicken-vegetable mixture; add spaghetti and toss to coat.

Yum!! A weeknight Winner! This was easy to prepare and with on-hand ingredients it was a cinch to make. I added extra garlic and chili's to the vegetable mixture rather than at the end of cooking. And mixed the sauce in the same pan rather than a separate pot as that was simpler. I also added some Sriracha to the sauce to give it a little more heat. When I was making this I thought some sliced ginger might be a nice addition but I don't miss it it's perfect the way it is. The peanuts are what really makes this dish so don't skip them! I also used really flavorful concentrated chicken stock (low sodium) sometimes your ingredients can make or break the dish! I did add some green onions for a final touch which added some freshness and brightness. I will definitely make this again! Read More

This was an easy weeknight recipe that I really thought we would like but unfortunately we found it tasted like it was missing something. I followed the recipe except for using skinless chicken thighs and thin buckwheat noodles. I will make it again adding some peanut butter and sweet chili sauce to give this recipe some depth.
