Thai Noodles

Peanut Sauce: 2 Tbsp soy sauce, 2 Tbsp water, 1/2 cup peanut butter, sugar, garlic powder; heat gently (either stovetop or microwave) til peanut butter is melted.
We didn't have oyster sauce so I used fish sauce

  1. Cook rice noodles according to package directions.
  2. Slice chicken breasts into strips. Marinate in soy sauce for about 1/2 hour.
  3. In a large saucepan or wok, heat sesame oil over medium heat. Cook chicken until no longer pink. Add garlic, ginger, and onions; cook until onions are tender. Add mushrooms and cucumbers; cook until mushrooms are tender. Add peppers, carrot, peanut sauce, oyster sauce, and hot chili pepper sauce. Heat through.
  4. Toss cooked rice noodles with saute. Garnish with sesame seeds.
