Thai anyone?

A few weeks ago a friend of mine wrote something about going out for Thai food on her facebook page. My mouth began that weird salivating thing even thinking about it. I LOVE ME SOME THAI! I never even thought that Iowa would have a thai place. :)

Thankfully, I came across this recipe and was able to make some Thai right at home - for half the price of what it would have cost me to go out. Because I also LOVE ME SOME MONEY SAVING.

Thai Chicken Fettuccine

1 c. salsa

1/4 c. creamy peanut butter

2 T. orange juice

2 T. honey

1 t. soy sauce

8 oz. fettuccine

3/4 to 1lb. boneless, skinless children breast, cut into strips

1 T. veggie oil

1 medium sweet red pepper, julienned

1/4 c. minced fresh cilantro

1) For sauce, in a micro-safe bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Cover and micro on high for 1 min ; stir. Continue until warm minute by minute and then set aside.

2) Cook fettuccine. Meanwhile, in large skillet, cook chicken in oil over med. heat for 3-5 minutes or until browned. Add red pepper; cook and stir until crisp tender.

3) Drain pasta; top with chicken mix and sauce. Sprinkle with cilantrol.

(Makes 4 servings)

Quick, Delish and doubles easily for company!
