Thai Chicken Fettuccine

This pasta dish is so simple to make, especially if you're having a busy day. Although, that's not the case for me today... just passing the time with cooking and watching movies!

Thai Chicken Fettuccine

1 box fettuccine
1 cup salsa
1 tablespoon sriracha
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 chicken breasts, cut into strips
5 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 red bell pepper, cut into short sticks
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

  • Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the fettuccine according to the boxes instructions.
  • In a small bowl, mix the salsa, sriracha, peanut butter, orange juice, honey and 1 tablespoon of soy sauce. Cook in the microwave for about 1 minute and let sit.
  • In a pan on medium-high heat add the oil and cook the chicken with the remaining 2 tablespoons of soy sauce. Add the garlic and peppers after the chicken is fully cooked. Cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add the sauce and pasta and mix well. 
  • Sprinkle with cilantro when ready to serve.
